Hart's Woods Challenge Course

Hart's Woods Challenge Course is the ideal group outing for schools, scouts, clubs, sports teams and small businesses. Nestled among the trees, Hart's Woods is located in between Chicago, Illinois and Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Activities involve mental and physical challenges that can only be resolved through teamwork and cooperation. With each activity, team members gain insight and experience to tackle the next task. They can apply these experiences in their everyday lives. Challenge Course programs are professionally designed to help each group reach specific goals and objectives. Trained facilitators work with your group throughout the day helping them progress further and further in a challenging environment.
