Team Odyssey 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, Team Odyssey is a challenging yet inclusive experience that forges permanent bonds among participants. Team Odyssey’s programs are designed for young people from middle school through college. Activities are aligned with the Virginia Standards of Learning to reinforce concepts students are learning in the classroom.
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.
