TeamOdyssey is an exhilarating experience that combines group development initiatives on the ground with team-centered climbing activities on the Odyssey High Ropes Course at the University of Richmond. Much more than just a physical challenge, TeamOdyssey is a challenging, yet inclusive experience that forges permanent bonds among participants. TeamOdyssey’s programs are designed for 5th grade through college aged students. Activities are aligned with the Virginia Standards of Learning to reinforce concepts students are learning in the classroom.
Note: 2 hour selection not available for Team Odyssey
The Common Ground program promotes diversity, respect, empathy and building meaningful relationships through inclusive activities and reflection. The problem-solving initiatives presented require clear communication, social engagement and effective teamwork. Through carefully timed "interventions" and debriefs, participants are reminded to be mindful of how they are influencing the group process.
The Lost Dutchman is a table-top simulation activity, based on the legend of the “Lost Dutchman’s Gold Mine” in the Superstition Mountains of Arizona. The challenge requires teams to absorb and analyze information, identify problems, making choices regarding collaboration and evaluating the consequences of their decisions. Lost Dutchman focuses on the ethical responsibility of considering the well being of others along the way to reaching a goal.
