The USF Challenge Center provides high-impact transformative learning experiences. We are guided by the principles that:
Programming supports the University of St. Francis’ goal of developing citizenship and servant leadership among our students and the community.
Additional services through USF Solutions Resource Center, including:
The outdoor teams course consists of a series of team-oriented obstacles designed to challenge groups to work together to accomplish a task. Activities require communication, problem solving, trust building and cooperation. Most activities are no more than a few feet above the ground. The Teams Course is semi-wooded and located in a quiet residential neighborhood a short walk from the USF Welcome Center.
Experienced Challenge Center facilitators will come to your site with portable equipment to deliver a team building program customized to the goals of your organization.
