The Alpine Tower is a unique 40 foot climbing and challenge structure for people 8 years old and up. It's 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.

Ground-Based Team Building

Ground-Based Team Building is a portable 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!
