Team Building Challenges

During your time in our team building program, your facilitator will guide you through activities and challenges that require your team to think and work through a problem together. All of our games are designed to be fun and engaging for the whole group. More importantly, the team building activities are also designed to bring out elements of how your group works together and communicates together. Our facilitators use these games and activities to initiate a discussion about leadership, trust, communication and teamwork.  We offer different team building programs to provide options for a variety of group types, age and skill levels.

Any coach knows the importance of good teamwork on the field.  The better a player understands what her teammates are doing, the better she will understand her own role and be able to effectively execute good action on the field.  Team building for sports teams helps players understand concepts like: verbal and non-verbal communication, what it means to be a good teammate, understanding your role in the game, and respecting and trusting your teammates.

Church & Youth Groups

Storm Repair Update

Refreshing Mountain Storm Repair Update

March 21 (9:20 AM):

Happy Spring! We sure are feeling it up here, with the warm temperatures and renewed life all around.

  • Activities Status:
    • As of Monday our Challenge Adventure Zipline passed all necessary inspections and tests and is officially back up and running! Thanks to Treetop Quest and our crew, these ziplines are back to their prime condition- just under 4 weeks after they were damaged.
    • We anticipate the Aerial Excursion Zipline to be available come March 31. Stay posted!

To check our Zipline Tour availability and make a reservation, click here!

March 16 (4:40 PM):

Despite the 17 inches of fresh powder, we are working on our ziplines and giant swing.

  • Activities Status: Today they were able to reset guide cables on our Giant Swing. We are performing the necessary inspections, tests, and expect to have this activity open by early next week.

March 10 (8:00 AM):

We received three inches of snow and expect another few inches in the upcoming week but that's not stopping our crew!

  • Activities Status: New poles arrived and our crews are hard at work setting anchors for the guidelines that stabilize the zipline poles on the closed courses. We are ahead of schedule!
  • Zipline Bookings: Speaking of schedules are open online and booking is live, click here!

March 7 (10:40 AM):

The rain has slowed and crews are hard at work.

  • Activities Status: Our zipline builder and inspector gave the go ahead to open our Flying V and High Ropes course! Schedules are open online and booking is live, click here!
  • Forest Recovery: The past week we have been trimming branches from downed trees and prepping them for loggers to come in and remove. At this point conservative estimates are 50-60 trees have been recovered and more to address as we get past the initial border of our forest lines.

March 6 (12:00 PM):

This past weekend we hosted 200+ people with our overnight retreats. The weather was cold, but we accomplished more work and are excited about the progress.

  • Facility status: Thanks to Meadow Valley Electric (MVE) Group our solar panels have been inspected and repaired and are up and running.
  • Activities status: Today we have an inspector from our zipline builder, Climbworks, here to inspect and evaluate our ziplines. We should have a projection of when our zipline tours will reopen in the next few days.

We expect more great news, stay posted!

March 1 (4:00 PM):

The rain impeded us from completing some of our outdoor projects today, but none the less much was accomplished.

  • Parking status: Cleared all parking areas of downed trees and limbs.
  • Activity status: We restored our sling shot and archery areas and ensured the nature center critters and farm animals will be ready this weekend. In addition the climbing tower and climbing wall will be fully operational as well!

Feb 28 (4:00PM):

  • Communication status: Minutes ago our communication lines were restored. Email and phone lines are now operational. We can now begin returning your calls!
  • Building status: All damaged roofs have been weatherproofed and are scheduled for permanent repair.
  • Activity status: We will have pedal carts and teambuilding in full operation this weekend, with more to come!

Our staff along with contractors have been working tirelessly campus wide to clear debris and begin repairs. We are extremely grateful for our neighbors who have given their time and energy. We are extremely thankful for how God continues to provide. We look forward to the days to come and our retreats this weekend!

Feb 27 (4:00 PM):

Around 3:30 on Saturday February 25th, a major wind storm hit Northern Lancaster County and significantly impacted Refreshing Mountain. We sustained damage to several buildings as well as our Ziplines / adventure activities. Nevertheless, we are so thankful to God that no one was hurt during the storm. Also, we are grateful that so many people in the community are helping with cleanup and repair. Our Retreat Center ( lodging, meals, Recreation) is still open and ready to host the many groups scheduled over the next few weeks. But our Ziplines and other adventure activities are temporarily closed as we inspect, assess, and repair. We hope to have everything back up and running within the next few weeks.
