Team Building & Activities
The Callaway Gardens Team Challenge is a comprehensive team building program with built-in flexibility to meet your group’s unique needs and objectives. It offers challenging but fun activities, each highly customizable and designed to help your group members refine their skills in leadership, communication, cooperation, encouragement, problem solving and more.
• TreeTop Adventure: Take your team to the air on this dizzying course of zip lines and other high-flying challenges deftly woven into Callaway Gardens’ natural forest. In our high-flying obstacle course comprised of ladders, wires, logs, discs, netting and other surfaces suspended 30 to 70 feet in the air, participants will build problem-solving skills and encourage each other to reach the next challenge or zip line.
• Photo Rally: Work with digital technology and rally together with your teammates to quickly capture specific images throughout the Gardens. Teams engage in a photo scavenger hunt, with each group following a set of instructions to digitally document their activities in various locations throughout the Gardens as they build relationships with one another.
• Ropes Course: Advance personal and team development by mastering high and low elements on our traditional ropes course. Our Ropes Course enables your team members to challenge themselves and build trust in one another in a safe and scenic environment.
Callaway Gardens has a wealth of recreational offerings that go hand-in-hand with the scenic surroundings in which they are set. From sports to cultural exhibits to shopping, we offer the activities and programming expertise to ensure maximum fun and camaraderie for your group as well as spouses and families.
