FAQ (PDF)

  • Course Forms
  • What programs do you offer?
    • For information on program offerings, check out the Program Options page. Each program is custom designed around your group’s goals. Our staff utilizes portable activities, low elements, and high elements to help reach those goals. We serve the FAU community, non-profits, and corporate groups. The FAU Challenge Course is committed to providing professional programming based in experiential education practices.
  • How do I schedule a program?
    • You may fill out the inquiry form on the Schedule a program page. You may also call Outdoor Adventures at 561-297-6110 or email to outdoor@fau.edu
  • How many people can we bring?
    • While our course can handle up to 120 participants at a time, we cannot guarantee staffing for that many.  Groups over 40 participants will need to wait until we can secure staffing before their program will be confirmed.  We suggest you schedule larger programs at least a month in advance.
  • How early should we schedule?
    •  We suggest all groups schedule with plenty of time to complete all the paperwork and insure proper staffing for your group.  Please allow at least two weeks from your program date to have it confirmed and staffed correctly.
  • How much does a program cost?
    • The prices are per participant (we charge a minimum of 10 participants).

  • Where are you located?
    • The FAU Challenge Course is located on the Boca Campus next to the Softball Complex. Check out our Contact Us page for directions.
  • Are there overnight accommodations at FAU?
    • There are no overnight facilities at the FAU Challenge Course. If your group needs overnight accommodations, there are several hotels within a 5-10 minute drive of campus.
  • Is there an age limit for activities?
    • Although there is no set minimum age limit for activities, we recommend no one under the age of 10 years. The biggest factor is fitting our harnesses and helmets for the high elements.
  • What should we know about parking?
    • Parking is available in LOT 12 by the softball field. Day passes are available for purchase at the Glades Road entrance for $2. We offer a limited number of complimentary day passes that you may obtain from the lead facilitator. Please encourage your group to carpool.
