Facilitated Experiential Approach
Whatever the program or area of focus, our staff-facilitated programs allow participants to have the opportunity to share their reactions, insights and emotions in a respectful and supportive learning environment. All of our facilitators are CPR/First Aid certified, and trained to ACCT (Association of Challenge Course Technology) standards and specifications.
We believe that people grow and learn best through doing, followed by positive and supportive reflection. Those and many other positive outcomes are a direct result of our experiential approach, which empowers groups and individuals to reach their fullest potential in spirit, mind, and body.
The Odyssey Course is a 40 ft tall, bi-level high ropes course that includes 10 different challenges and obstacles that you must navigate and work together with your group to accomplish. Ages 10 and up. Located at Cottage Lake Park in Woodinville, WA.
We have 3 climbing towers in the Greater Seattle YMCA Network, all of which offer a variety of climbing classes, open climbs, rentals, camps, and programs for all ages! There are towers at the Northshore YMCA in Bothell, the Dale Turner YMCA in Shoreline, and the Matt Griffin YMCA in SeaTac.
The Alpine Tower is a unique 40 foot climbing and challenge structure. It is a 3-sided pyramid, with 6 different climbing routes ranging in difficulty. Participants climb and maneuver around the various obstacles and logs, using hand holds, ropes, wood, and nets to reach the top. The Alpine Tower is located at the Auburn Valley YMCA in Auburn.
Low Team Challenge
The Low Team Challenge is a ground-based team-building program that presents your group with a series of icebreaker activities followed by a set of integrated team initiatives. These are all on the ground, and individuals will not go higher than 6 feet. If you’re looking for a fun and fast-paced experience on the ground, this is a great choice for you! We can do this program on the grounds of Cottage Lake Park, or we can bring it to you. This is a great option for schools who don't want to travel or groups that have limits on high activities.
