The IQ Challenge Course
Simply put, our IQ Challenge Course is an exciting way to help a participant discover more about him or herself and other team members. “It was the funnest day of my life!”, remarked a recent Workshop participant even though she was exhausted. Working with others to complete challenging tasks had delivered exhilaration and a sense of satisfaction she had rarely known.
A Few Example Activities
Participants are divided into 8 to 10 person Learning Teams. Small groups maximize learning potential for participants. Inner Quest determines final course content in coordination with the client, but here are some initial activates that could be used for your groups Workshop:
- Name Game is an “ice breaker” used to let participants and instructors learn each others’ names and to set the atmosphere of fun and learning that will be used throughout the seminar.
- Spotting Circle teaches the skill of spotting necessary to insure safety and illustrates the need for Team trust as well as the concept of building a support network.
- Trust Fall reinforces and further illustrates the concepts introduced in the Trust Circle. In this activity, additional perceived risk adds drama to the application of skills already learned.
- All Aboard is the team’s first attempt at solving a problem. Everyone must occupy a small platform at the same time. The concepts of identifying the problem, effective brainstorming, resource assessment, achieving consensus, experimentation and teamwork in execution of a solution are introduced.
- The Zipwire is a series of high activities where the participant has the opportunity to challenge his/herself by traversing a cable bridge to a platform high in a tree and then ride a pulley on a cable approximately 500 feet across a ravine and back to the ground. Each participant is connected to safety systems at all times and is closely supervised by IQ Staff. The challenge is more psychological than physical and allows an opportunity to stretch one’s self-imposed limits.
IQ Adventure Camps: The Final Word
Depending as to length and specific goals of the programs, the IQ Team-building Workshop might also include outdoor living skills, orienteering, canoeing, caving, rock climbing and rappelling.
