“Over the past 7 years Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools No Easy Walk Program has partnered with Xtreeme Challenge to reach middle school youth with critical thinking, hands on learning and outdoor adventure activities. These programs combine a trusted and safe location with Wingate College Students and onsite trained facilitation. The results have shown up in better testing scores, attitudes, attendance and community social skills.”

“Gang of One has worked closely with Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools and Xtreeme Challenge to create an outdoor leadership, gang prevention program for youth. This program has strong initial outcomes related to resisting gang influence and attachment to school. We recommend this program to other schools ”
K. Frances Cook,
The Challenge Walk is unlike any low ropes course (outdoor
adventure) event that schools have ever seen. It is ideal for
Elementary, Middle, High and College groups.
This activity measures the length of two football fields as it gently weaves in a circle through a heavily wooded natural area. It is designed to handle up to 240 students all at once and keep them engaged the entire time.
We combined the feeling of a scavenger hunt with the adventure of the best video games. Students are wrapped in an adventure that can last up to 2 hours.
We totally customize each schools experience with challenge cards that have your schools logo on them. We also adapt different clues to the age range and results needed with the group. Each activity will be as unique as the interpretation by the group.
Progressive team building happens before your eyes. Transparency is another word to describe the results. Since the participants have never experienced anything like this they become open and transparent.
We capture the results on report cards and make the adventure mean more. The rules state that no member of a team may touch the ground for the length of the event.
We also capture the event through professional photography (www.valentinedesign.com) and create a custom full size poster. We are looking for relationships that last. Some call it Field Trips while others have annual retreats.
For School Field Trips we suggest our
newest event added to The Challenge Walk the
“Over the past few years we have partnered with the Xtreeme Challenge facility just 3 miles away . I have done several events with my students and have many of my students working along side middle and grade school events with Michael and Diana Valentine. I highly recommend this as a Wingate event for other areas in the university or other schools”
