Challenge by Choice
We operate on a challenge by choice basis. As a result a participant can do as little or as much of the activities as they would like. The goal of the challenge course is to come away with new ideas about the group and to have a good experience. For this reason we promote encouragement to overcome fears but the facilitator will determine whether it has turned from that into pressure to do an activity. Again we hope to give the participants a fun learning experience and not to have their feelings hurt.
