Team 101 is a great introductory program for students who have potential to work with others, but have not yet realized it. This program focuses on the aspects of all-around teamwork and can be amended to meet the needs, ages and physical abilities of each group.
In “SDSU” the program packages any of our programs and camping or Sky Splash and camping in one convenient and cost-effective package.
Sky Splash combines a half-day of hands-on learning with our custom team-development program and the enjoyment of swimming and other water-based activities at Dutch Springs Aqua Park. We also offer a lunch package for all participants, making this a complete day that provides a hassle-free day for group leaders and activity organizers who can count on our team to deliver a worry-free outing for your group or organization.
This is a high-adventure activity that instills confidence and self-esteem as participants learn how to belay others and be belayed as they rappel our 17- or 35-feet climbing wall. In this program we focus more of your time and energy on high adventure fun. This activity can also be combined with our more traditional, low-course elements for a more complete learning experience.
This sports-oriented program is designed for each group based on the specific sport the participants play. From lacrosse to basketball to field hockey to swimming you request, we provide a focused activity that uses the terminology and activities of each individual sport with an eye to improving teamwork. But the real score is the activity debriefing, where we help your team members transfer their new-found skills right back to the field, court or pool.
One of the most unique programs in the region, NorthStar Adventure’s Dog-Mushing program ties into the popularity of Alaska’s annual Iditarod Race – the world’s longest dog-team race as participants mush over 1,200 miles to recreate the celebrated mushing trail from Seward to Nome that played a vital role in the settlement of the 49th state. Led by North Star’s Kari Hyunadi in cooperation with her Siberian and Alaskan Huskies, our course is not nearly so challenging but a lot more fun. Kari brings her own dogs and guides participants as they learn, meet a seasoned dog-musher, approach and interact with the dogs, see the sled in action and work together as they pull the sled.
