Team-Building Activities

“Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.”

Team-building is important for every group as it facilitates better communication, breaks down barriers, motivates team members, promotes creativity, and helps your team develop problem-solving skills. YMCA Camp Letts’ adventure courses provide a relaxing environment for your team to explore, learn and grow. Activities are tailored to fit your needs and pace – challenging, but always enjoyable. Through simulated challenges and physical obstacles, your group will become better communicators, strategic thinkers, collaborators and leaders. Our Development and Adventure Courses turn individuals and groups into teams.

Your team will work with our trained facilitators at a group-specific pace. By creating a foundation of communication and trust through challenging activities, groups can become more efficient, have more fun, and raise the overall quality of work. We work with newly formed groups as well as teams that have been together for years and are looking for a catalyst for change. The Team Initiatives program is the basis for our Team Development and High Adventure Courses. This program costs $150 for a 1.5 hour session and includes up to 20 participants.


The Team Development Course is designed for small groups to come together and build their problem-solving skills. Our trained staff guide groups through a series of fun obstacles that challenge them to work together mentally, physically and socially. Whether it’s beating the “Spider’s Web” or getting your whole group over the “Team Wall,” your group will have a rewarding and exciting time learning more about themselves and each other. The course ends with a debriefing session that highlights successes and lessons learned. This course costs $150 for a 1.5 hour session and includes up to 15 participants. Multiple groups can run at the same time!


The High Adventure Course takes team development a few steps further – 35 feet up in the trees! This is designed for teams and individuals who want to step outside of their comfort zone and accept an inspiring challenge.  With our multi-element High Ropes Course, there’s an obstacle for every climber to overcome, from the terrified novice to the adventurous dare-devil. You will develop skills and confidence during your time at Camp. Trained staff lead the group through a detailed orientation before climbing begins, and monitor the course to ensure safety. Here at YMCA Camp Letts, success is measured by a willingness to try! This course costs $300 for a 1.5 hour session and includes up to 15 guests.
