College Group Program Options

Traditional Teambuilding

The goal for these groups is to move forward along the spectrum of being an effective team.  Some groups will know each other, some will not.  Some groups will have shared experiences previously, some will not.  Each teambuilding facilitator will plan activities that will allow them to evaluate the needs of the group and then move them forward.

Have We Met?

This fun filled day of games and sharing will bring smiles and knowing looks when you go back home.  Animal imitations, noodle duels, and describing your life with only your hands are only a few of the kinds of activities that will help you relax and get to know each other experientially.

Large Group Activity Days

Is it time to let off steam and share great times?  This program is designed for groups who want to have fun and get away to the woods.  Huge games like Needle and Thread Tag, Moon Ball, and Turnstile interspersed with quiet walks by the water and wobbling your way across a cable bridge or being challenged on the ropes course provide the foundation for laughter, discussion and memories.

Teambuilding and Training

Many groups who visit Frost Valley for teambuilding will then return to their college or workplace and have to lead groups of their own.  With this format our facilitators will combine other offerings with explanations and tips to prepare participants to lead some activities.

Can I Trust You?

Overcome those second thoughts about those you spend hours and hours with in class, at work, or playing sports.  Our facilitators will guide you through exercises to challenge you to take care of each other, give meaningful feedback, and truly rely on each other.

Plays Well With Others

Here is an opportunity to play cooperatively, solve problems and challenges, and have fun.  Relax, play and then explore what worked and what can be applied elsewhere to improve the spirit of cooperation in every venue in your life – work, school, sports, with friends, and within your family.

Corporate Challenge

Is your leadership team is in a rut?  Are things no longer running smoothly?  Are there some new key people?  Let a retreat at the Frost Valley YMCA rejuvenate and re-create the cooperative spirit!  Our facilitators can help with goal setting, communication, SWOT analysis, and trusting each other.  Let us help you explore the way you interact with fun and challenging activities.  Come prepared to work, grow, and laugh.

Leadership and Guidance

This workshop model stresses participants’ roles and looks to develop the skills necessary to be an effective leader.  Giving and receiving feedback, communicating directions, exploring disabilities, and taking responsibility for decisions are some of the topics explored while working to solve problems and establish and reach goals.

Childhood and Innocence

Long summer evenings, fields with long grass.  Crisp fall mornings, the smells of notebooks and pencils.  The joy of a new ball or book or bike.  The senses of our childhood before becoming cluttered with schedules and deadlines and worries.  Let us help you look back and remember and re-create those inside feelings and explore what is important to hold onto and nurture as we get older.

Ropes Courses

Experienced facilitators guide participants through challenges that include developing personal climbing skills, working with a partner on paired activities, making the commitment of jumping into space, pulling together to give peers a thrill, and having a good time. Participants are encouraged to push their limits, but the final decision is always left with the individual. The depth and range of the activities assures groups will experience the appropriate challenge for their stage of development, meeting their particular goals.

Indoor Bouldering Wall

One key skill for all outdoor lovers is bouldering, which is the act of climbing up and over boulders or natural obstacles in order to reach your destination. Our indoor bouldering wall allows you to safely practice and hone this skill so you can apply it in the great outdoors!

High Ropes Course

Test your courage 30 feet in the air on our high ropes courses. Teams work together, crossing a rope bridge, a tight rope, and Postman’s Walk.

Leap of Faith

Gain courage and trust by climbing a ladder and jumping off a platform toward a suspended ball, as your friends cheer you on! Can you take the leap?

Low Ropes Course

All groups benefit from enhanced trust. Guests spot and support one another as they take turns navigating a series of obstacles several feet in the air on our low ropes course.

Pegasus

The “Pegasus” is similar to what is known on main camp as the “Flying Squirrel.” As your team pulls you into the air, you’ll feel as if you’re truly flying! Our experienced staff will coach and support you as you challenge yourself to achieve feats you never thought possible.
