Information Request Form 

What is the Challenge Program?
The Challenge Program offers people innovative ways to improve their abilities when working with others. This learn by doing approach focuses on creative problem solving and effective communication. Join us for a day of fun experiences that will activate inner resources, increase trust and enhance group cohesion. Each program is tailored to meet the needs of the group. The team of facilitators has experience with clubs, office units, social organizations and corporate groups.

Where is the program facilitated?
The lodge and outdoor ropes course is located in the Indian Creek Recreation Area off South Indian Creek Drive. Team building sessions can also be conducted on the Georgia State University campus.

How do I schedule?

  • Submit a request via the online form
  • Reserve date at least four weeks in advance
  • Make final payment at least four weeks in advance to avoid cancellation
  • Confirm all details no later than two weeks in advance

A minimum of 10 person charge is required but larger groups are easily accommodated. Sessions may range from two hours to half or full day.

How much does it cost?
Full Day Package:

  • Up to $30 per Georgia State student, including activities
  • Up to $40 per Georgia State faculty or staff, including activities

Lunch can be included for an extra $5 per person. Other packages are available at lesser cost.

Ropes Course
The ropes course consists of group initiatives and high and low team building elements. The high ropes course is over 130 feet long and has two levels topping out 38 feet above the ground. As participants progress through the course, they are challenged by completing up to six elements that they confront with a variety of facilitator directed challenges. Exiting the course consists of five different methods to swing, leap, tumble or zip line. The three zip lines off the course total nearly 1,000 feet long and also introduce to the course a large mid-zip platform 50 feet high in a giant sweetgum tree overlooking Snapfinger Creek.

The low ropes course consists of 13 individual elements located throughout the property and serve as a great way for groups to come together and target developmental skills and collaboration. The challenges call upon every member of the group to participate and offer endless opportunities for self-discovery.
