About Our TEAM
The EDGE staff is a professional, diverse, multi-generational group of educators with extensive training and experience in the art of leading challenge courses. Our rich backgrounds in everything from athletics to zoology—with a strong dose of organizational development and education in between—allow us to make strong, personal connections. We truly enjoy what we do, and it’s reflected in the relationships we build and the results you achieve.
Why it Works
The EDGE takes pride in customizing its programs to specific client needs, matching the right solutions and staff members to guide your group to success. Our organization draws on 30 years of experiential learning practice at one of the most versatile and best-maintained challenge courses on the East Coast. From our high element challenges, like the Alpine Tower, to our low element challenges and problem-solving initiatives, our facilitators will lead your group through a team-building experience that will provide long-lasting, impactful results
Professional Development and Custom Consulting
Build strong, cohesive teams with The EDGE’s team-building essentials. Groups undergoing our team development courses solve problems together, cooperate toward a common goal, improve the way they interact with one another and, importantly, have fun while they develop valuable communication skills.
Specialized Skill Development
With The EDGE’s customized programs, your organization can develop leadership, fine-tune communication and goal-setting skills, and build a better understanding of the strengths and roles within your team. Whether you are a sports team seeking to improve communication on and off the field, or an organization seeking to understand how individuals on your team can make a greater whole, The EDGE can help develop the skills to meet your goals.
