Sandhills High AdventureHigh Adventure

Sandhills Community College is the home of the Sandhills High Adventure program. This is an outdoor ropes course that offers a tranquil setting for teams to begin an exciting journey to success.

The activities involved in the Sandhills High Adventure will guide participants through physical and mental challenges, which promote creative, productive, and motivated teams.

Sandhills High Adventure will challenge participants to succeed in:

  • Team building
  • Self-motivation
  • Problem solving
  • Decision-making
  • Effective communication

Participants learn to leave their comfort zones and take calculated risks in a supportive, team environment. They will learn that together, a team can go much further than an individual who stands alone. Sandhills High Adventure will encourage participants to reach beyond their self-imposed limits.
