Are You Ready for the Challenge?
The Challenge Course at Northwest Nazarene University is an innovative approach to experiential education. Based on the premise of “learning by doing,” participants are given the opportunity through trust and team-building activities to experience “holistic change” while on the course, and transferring this into real life applications at home, workplace, school, church and community.
This is accomplished through games, initiatives, the low and high ropes elements as they serve as developmental tools for creative and fun-filled interchange between team members.
For individuals, outcomes include positive self-concept, creative thinking, personal vision, compassion, self-awareness, and spiritual formation and growth (for faith-based experiences).
For groups, outcomes include team building, communication skills, leadership skill- building, problem-solving, trust-building, conflict resolution, cooperation and group vision.
