PEEC's Team Building and Leadership training sessions are designed to promote leadership, self-confidence, communication, & teamwork.

Team Building Brochure


Team Building programs consist of a series of challenging outdoor problems designed to foster leadership, self-confidence, communication, and teamwork within and among the members of any group.  The program requires participation of all team members to plan and execute the solutions to physically and mentally stimulating tasks. 


As a complement to the group-oriented tasks of the challenge course, team building programs may include low ropes elements, collectively referred to as the “Confidence Course.”  These activities develop trust within the group, as well as individual confidence. 

Each group’s Team Building experience will be different. The PEEC facilitator will design a program to suit the ages and abilities within the group. The focus of the program is on the process, so the number of activities completed may vary.

Our well-qualified staff is trained in all aspects of challenge/adventure education and will facilitate the Team Building and Leadership Training experiences at PEEC. 

Call PEEC for more information, rates, availability, or to schedule your Team Building program.  These sessions require a 3-hour commitment. Lunch and/or refreshments are also available upon request.  Casual, outdoor clothing, light-weight hiking shoes and /or sneakers are recommended.

Call PEEC for information at (570) 828-2319.

The best way to experience our environmental lessons is to visit PEEC for a hands-on adventure. If that is not possible, PEEC staff may be able to travel up to a hour to reach you!

Our most popular Outreach Programs are

  • Wildlife Study - Students will learn to identify wildlife and signs of wildlife through hands-on learning inside and outside the classroom.  Focus is placed on understanding habitat, human impacts, and relationships between wildlife and their environment.  Up-close examination of skins and skulls may be included.
  • Bat Study - This lesson will cover the myths and misconceptions about bats and show students how important these creatures are to humans.  The lesson also includes information on White Nose Syndrome.  Activities will explore the beneficial aspects of bats, adaptations, predator/prey relationships, and life histories.
  • Town Meeting - Students simulate a meeting of community members with different interests in a piece of public land and try to convince the ‘panel’ that their interest in the land’s use is the best use of the property.  Develops individual opinions, personal values, and an understanding of how land-use decisions can be made.
  • Team Building through Group Initiatives - A series of challenges which promote team building, cooperation, and decision making within a group.  Students need to work together in order to accomplish the task with minimal help from teachers or staff.
