CHALLENGE COURSE

Florida Atlantic University is home to the most comprehensive Challenge Course in South Florida. With over 30 elements, including lows and highs, and numerous portables.

We will customize an experiential based program for your organization and focus the group’s specific needs.  Common program benefits include teamwork, communication, leadership, decision making and personal growth. On many occasions we have groups come to the course without a clear set of goals. 

Whether you have a goal or are still searching for a common outcome, our facilitators will be happy to assist you in planning out your day. Please note that requests for specific agendas or initiatives should be communicated well in advance.

FAU Affiliated Groups

If you are a part of an athletics team, academic unit, FAU department, or support office on campus and would like to take advantage of the Challenge Course, then we would consider you as a University Affiliated Group. No need to travel far, hire an outside facilitator, or plan a group bonding activity when our Challenge Course is located right here on the Boca Campus. Portable programs are available for on-campus affiliates. These programs are designed to bring our initiatives to your location on campus. Utilizing portable elements and initiatives, our facilitators are able to help your group work on the same outcomes as a program would at the challenge course. This is a great way to introduce your group to the benefits of having an in depth program on our challenge course.

INFORMATION TO KNOW


Q: How far in advance should I schedule my program?

A: 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. 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 till we can secure staffing before their program will be confirmed. We suggest you schedule larger programs at least a month in advance.

 

Q: What should we know about parking?

A: Parking is available in LOT 12 by the softball field. Day passes are available for purchase at the Glades Road entrance or online for $2. We offer a limited number of complimentary day passes that you may obtain from the lead facilitator (1 for every 4 participants). Please encourage your group to carpool.

 

Q:  What if there is inclement weather during our program?

A: Before your event: If inclement weather is expected for your program date, you may reschedule your program up to two days prior. In the case of cancellation due to weather, Challenge Course staff will do its best to provide an alternate date that meets your schedule. 

Day of your event: In case of inclement weather the day of your event, our facilitators will make a decision on how or if to continue your program. In most cases, your program will continue under the course pavilion. Programs will be facilitated, rain or shine, unless severely dangerous conditions persist.  We do not offer refunds to groups that encounter inclement weather the day of their program, but we will make every effort to complete it in its entirety.

 

Q: Where is the Challenge Course located on campus?

A: We are located on the Boca Raton Campus next to the Softball Complex.
