Programs


Team Challenge Workshop:

This is a great option for groups who want to focus more on a specific emphasis with their group, including: communication, unity, leadership, goal setting, managing change, strengthening relationships, building trust, or problem solving, etc.

This program also allows groups a chance to be away from their normal work/ school zone and get to learn more about each group member and strengthen existing bonds. We also use a series of trust and support activities that give team members an opportunity to place their physical and emotional safety in others.

Group Size:

12-200 participants

Time Requirements:

2-6 hours

Team Challenge Workshop and High Ropes Course: (Our most popular option)

The core components of a Team Challenge Workshop with the addition of:

  • Low Elements that take the team 2-12ft off the ground and require participation from the whole group in order to achieve success
  • Partnered and Individual High Elements suspended 25-45 feet off the ground
Group Size:

12-150  participants

Boat Building Regatta:

If you want a unique experience with the core ideals of a team atmosphere, our Boatbuilding Program is the way to go. The original group is split down into smaller teams that must design, construct, and navigate a cardboard boat across the 50m Aztec Aquaplex pool. This program requires planning in small groups and provides individuals with multiple opportunities to think creatively and plan strategically to develop an innovative solution for their team.

Team awards are given at the end of the program for the categories of: Fastest Boat, Design Esthetics, Team Spirit, and (only if necessary) The Titanic Award ­for the most spectacular sinking.

Group Size:

12-150 participants

Time Requirements:

2-3 Hours

Rockwall Team Challenge:

Join us in the opportunity for smaller groups to build a cooperative relationship with other team members though individual support and tandem climbing at the Aztec Recreation Center Indoor Rockwall. Our rockwall is approximately 30 feet tall and is the perfect environment for smaller groups to break out of the normal routine and have a chance to experience something new.

Group Size:

12-20 participants

Time Requirements:

1-2 Hours

Aztec Chef Cook-off:

You’ve seen the Iron Chef Cook-off on television, but have you ever seen the Aztec Chef Cook-off? In this new program groups must create a delicious multi-plate menu for your other team(s). Each group has a limited time to plan, cook, and present their dishes.

We will work closely with the group leader to determine all food items and other ingredients that will get your team excited to cook. We have a wide range of food experience from complete vegan menus to a dessert eater’s sugary heaven. Our staff chefs will also be on hand to guide and assist wherever necessary.

By the end of the program your group will have gained the knowledge to become a better cook and will experience the chance to sit down and relax as they enjoy a delicious meal with the entire team.

All cooking equipment and utensils are provided and the winning dishes are recognized with the Aztec Chef Awards.

Group Size:

12-50 participants

Time Requirements:

2-3 Hours

Building Bridges:

With multiple variations this program is both a great analogy and flexible to your team’s needs. The overall goal is to construct a bridge that will hold the weight of either a 5 gallon water jug, 1 individual, or the entire team. Mind you this bridge is built solely out of newspaper, duct tape and a whole lot of ingenuity.

Each small group plan, designs, and constructs a bridge according to the specific measurements, materials, and time limits provided. Depending on the type of bridge, smaller project teams must communicate and consult with all other teams to coordinate their bridge design.

For this program a high emphasis placed on quality assurance and time management as well as “building bridges” for the future.

Group Size:

10-300 participants

Time Requirement:

1-3 hours

Team Challenge Photo Safari:

As our newest program, this is also one of our most sought out programs. This is a great program for groups new to the SDSU campus as well as returning groups looking for a little thrill. We have designed this program to be a unique experience every time, including a Survivor-based Scavenger hunt to a SDSU History Hunt.

We will provide both the digital cameras as well as a Picassa site to upload all of the final photos. This program will leave you with both a stich in your side and a shared memory that your group will be talking about for months to come.

Group Size:

12-50 participants

Time Requirement:

2-3 hours

With Every Team Challenge Program

  1. We establish a safe environment for group members to contribute their thoughts and ideas while working towards accomplishing goals

  4. We provide opportunities for group members to learn more about each other and strengthen personal relationships through common experiences
  5. We give individuals (and groups) a chance to go beyond their perceived limitations and realize that, individually, they can achieve more with the support of their group
  6. We designate time for individuals to reflect on their experiences and connect what they have learned back to their everyday lives
