Challenge Course

Build a more confident you!

Disciple Oaks Challenge Course
(Low & high elements)
The Disciple Oaks Challenge Course is designed to benefit groups of all kinds who want to work together toward a common goal. The course objectives are to promote cooperation and group problem-solving skills, as well as develop individual self-confidence, leadership skills, teamwork and communication skills. 
​​We challenge you to "come and take it!"​​
How does it work?
The course introduces groups to artificial stressors and challenges in a controlled and safe environment led by two or more well-trained, experienced volunteers from our facilitator team. The course setting provides an opportunity for groups and individuals to learn about themselves and address personal, interpersonal and organizational issues. Each team member brings a unique personality and style of communication that contributes to the dynamics of a team. Team members discover how vital individual contributions are to the success of the team. Participants have an opportunity to reflect on their team-building adventure and apply their experience to everyday life. 
Each low elements program is customized to meet a group's specific needs and address certain themes which they deem important. Your program will be a unique adventure with the potential to induce learning and behavior change on both an individual and group basis.
Duration and lodging
​Ideally, the course is conducted over a weekend, beginning Friday evening and lasting into Sunday. You're welcome to reserve our lodge rooms or dorm-style sleeping areas, but a primitive camping area is also available near the course area.
Group size and age limits
​We accept groups with up to 20 members (about 12-16 is ideal) of all ages and ability levels. Participants must be ages 14 and up.

Opened in late 2013, we’ve led many groups to better group cooperation and communication. In late 2015, we completed our high elements course (including a zipline over the lake). Consider bringing your group soon. Contact us at 830-437-2900, email ​us at [email protected] or register and pay online.
