Challenge Course

Want to achieve top productivity & performance? Let us show you the ropes.

The biggest challenge today’s leaders face is developing the kind of teamwork that fosters innovative problem-solving and enhances productivity. In a group setting, it’s often difficult to open the lines of communication, build trust and cooperation and encourage risk-taking.

That’s why Furman University has created the Challenge Course, the outdoor program that teaches confidence, goal-setting, cooperative decision-making and team synergy.


Furman’s Challenge Course consists of a series of outdoor physical and mental challenges, non-competitive games and problem-solving adventures, generally performed on low and high-ropes elements.
