TrueNorth Team Navigation!™ is our unique team building program, where we facilitate outdoor teambuilding using maps and compasses (the international sport of Orienteering).


We divide the group into small teams. They will learn how to use new tools and data to locate hidden checkpoints to solve a puzzle and open a treasure chest!

2020 Dates-Scheduling for mid-late summer

Obviously due to the current coronavirus pandemic "shutdown" situation, group programs like our unique "Team Navigation!™"  are on hold....We'll post, once we know, when our outdoor team building program will be available for the summer of 2020. Stay safe, & practice social isolation!  Hope to see you this summer..!!


Corporate Teambuilding

The program is a 1/2 day format using a downtown Indianapolis setting or a suburban forest setting (Eagle Creek Park).


  • Debriefs-connect activity back to the workplace

  • Fun Awards!

  • Real treasure chest!  

We also take pictures of the groups and prepare a fun photo-slide show DVD as a keepsake!  


Schools/Youth Groups

The unique school program is a week-long, designed for 5th grade and above, that engages small teams of students for 2 interactive days in/at their schools, that prepares them for a field trip to Eagle Creek Park.


On the field trip the students become the teachers, as they teach their chaperones how to Team Navigate!™ in the woods


  • Real Maps & Compasses

  • Multiple Puzzles

  • Treasure Chests

  • Student Problem-Solving

  • Student Decision-Making

  • Student Rotating Roles

  • Student Centered & Led 


Youth Programs have a 1/2 day field trip option at Eagle Creek Park, or a similar 2-day prep version, similar to the school program above, leading to a field trip to Eagle Creek Park.



We also take pictures of the groups, and prepare a fun photo-DVD slide show as a keepsake!
