Why our programs Work
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

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.
