About the William & Mary Challenge Course 

 Our Philosophy. Our Challenge Course programs are based on Experiential Education principles.Teamwork Experiential Education is a learning process that places participants in unique settings with purposeful problem-solving activities that require full engagement. Through synthesis and reflection, participants re-examine pre-existing behaviors and explore new skills and strengths.

Our facilitators provide opportunities for team and individual learning in a controlled and challenging environment. Through mindful debriefing and authentic discussions, we transfer these learning experiences back to the personal, professional, and academic lives of participants.

 Our Programs. We design your program based on team needs and goals.

The W&M Challenge course is open to W&M organizations as well as outside groups.  We ask that all requests be made at least two weeks before your requested program date. All participants must complete an Assumption of Risk form and a Health History form before participating in challenge course programs.
