Outdoor Education Group Outings and Development

If you’re looking to transform your team or organization into an efficient and collaborative group, we can help. Our outdoor group development opportunities have proven to be fun, exciting, and effective.
Students participate in a "tree climbing for break" class.

Group Development Opportunities

Our programs are designed to maximize Colgate's most important resources — its people — in a fun, educational, and transformational way.

We begin every program with a goals assessment form then custom develop your program to fit the bonding and transformational goals of your group, office, or class. Options include:
  • Team building programs at The Beattie Reserve (just under four miles from campus) utilizing our low ropes challenge course and other initiatives
  • Group games and ice breakers, either indoors or outdoors, virtually anywhere on campus
  • Raft building and other water-based activities at the Glendening Boat House
  • Private, instructed sessions at the Angert Family Climbing Wall
  • Guided outings on the Harry Lang XC & Fitness Trails
  • Tree climbing high in the trees above the former ski hill
  • Canoeing through the beautiful Sangerfield River or in the state parks surrounding Colgate
Because no two groups are the same, all of our programs start with a conversation to discuss your particular goals and needs. Contact us to learn more.
