Challenge Courses

Because learning and growth is both a challenge and an adventure.

Heartland Center Challenge Adventures are custom designed to meet both personal and organizational developmental goals for business, community organizations, churches and individuals.

Heartland Center facilitators are trained and experienced to challenge your group while maintaining safe boundaries. We operate on the philosophy or “your challenge, your choice.” We will encourage individuals and groups to push beyond perceived boundaries, but will not pressure nor allow others in the group to pressure any participant to engage in activities outside of their own comfort or safety limits.
