What is the UGA Challenge Course?

The UGA Challenge Course is a series of high and low elements comprised of cables, logs and ropes that your group will navigate as a team. You’ll be coached by our skilled Challenge Course Facilitators along the way; they’ll help you focus on your group goals for the day, then transfer what you’ve learned to your workplace, group or organization.
