Outdoor Teambuilding
 

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!

2020/2021...Years to ....Remember (Or Forget)...??!!

Unfortunately, due to the once-in-a-lifetime coronavirus pandemic "shutdown" situation, we had to cancel all of our 2020/Spring 2021 outdoor TrueNorth Team Navigation!™ group programs....In over 20 years of facilitating this unique outdoor program, obviously we have never had to do this.....But we cancelled out of respect for everyone's health & safety, as well as following CDC pandemic guidelines and Marion County restrictions. Stay safe, consider getting vaccinated, wearing masks indoors, & being mindful of social distancing.... 

Hope to see you in Fall 2021 or Spring 2022..!!
