college & adult groups
We are proud to have earned a relationship with surrounding colleges and universities in the area. Some of the programs we have had the honor of working with include the University of Virginia, Virginia Tech, Roanoke College, Virginia Western University, Radford University, William & Mary, and even some a little farther out from North Carolina and Maryland.
We cater to all of the various programs that universities offer such as collegiate athletes, sororities & fraternities, alumni associations, honors programs, pre-orientation programs, orientation leaders, leadership programs, outdoor clubs, international programs, and more.
We are also happy to welcome non-college adult clubs, organizations and groups. We understand that adults have different needs, goals and requirements than school or college groups, and we are always happy to accommodate them.
Team Building Programs
While all our activity option offer the opportunity for teamwork and self discovery, our on-site team building programs are specifically designed to build communication, trust and teamwork within the group. Whether you're looking to put your athletic team into a new environment, brainstorm with a student government or build bonds within a Greek Life group, our team building activities and challenge courses will help you reach your goals. These programs will guide your group through a progression of icebreakers and get-to-know you activities, trust building exercises, communication games, and group problem solving on our Low Element Team Building Course, and our High Ropes Adventure Course. Choose as many team building activities as you like, and our staff will happily assist you in the planning process.
Lodging and Camping Options
Our beautiful property has three comfortable lodges perfect for accommodating large groups. Our Main Lodge, Sly Lodge and Sneaky Cabin offer a variety of lodging options for groups, and we are also able to offer group camping options as well with access to bathroom facilities, a covered pavilion and fire pit. If you're interested in offering your group an outdoor immersion experience, we are also able to offer extended camping and backpacking trips led by our staff, all gear provided.
Of course, no stay would be complete without our phenomenal meal services! Our chefs and kitchen staff always prepare healthy and appetizing meals for a day full of adventure with both basic and customized options available!
Wilderness Adventure is proud to offer a wide selection of activities both on our base camp as well as off-property in the local mountains and national forest lands of southwest Virginia. Our base camp facility is home to an array of team building and challenge course facilities as well as our famous 900' zipline, 50' climbing wall, pond and hiking trails. Our highly trained professional staff also lead adventure activities such as mountain biking, rock climbing, whitewater kayaking, caving and more!
