Challenge Course

The SJU Challenge Course consists of many tasks that participating groups work to accomplish together. The course emphasizes the need for cooperation, communication and teamwork. It provides an opportunity for individuals to examine their leadership styles and roles within a group. The events require varying degrees of physical activity and ability but most groups are able to successfully complete all challenges presented. Just let yourself go, use your imagination, and have a great time!
