LLDC uses cooperative games, ice breakers, trust activities, and team building challenges as a means of helping individuals and groups engage in a change or growth process.
LLDC has a low-ropes course. Low-ropes course challenges are designed to enhance team-building skills. Through the use of cables hung low to the ground, participants use minimal props and one another to navigate the given challenge.
LLDC is situated on over 300 acres of diverse habitat. Exploration and discovery are at the center of our environmental education philosophy. Habitat exploration, stream investigation, and Vermont natural history are the core environmental education activities.
As part of a team, groups will build weatherproof debris shelters that will fit all members of their team.
Participants work in groups on a designated course with a set of compass bearings that they use to find control points. The focus of orienteering at LLDC is to teach basic compass skills.
As part of a team, groups will build a “one match” fire with natural materials that they find in the woods.
