ALTITUDE  (Achieving Leadership Through Integrated Teamwork, Unity, Dedication, and Empowerment) 

ALTITUDE is a program designed to offer leadership, experiential education, and team building experiences to students, youth, adults, sports teams, business organizations and more.

Our goal is to educate participants about group dynamics, the role and expectations of a leader and how members of a team/group can function most effectively - empowering individuals and groups through the use of adventure programming, team building and leadership development initiatives.
Every individual’s experience at ALTITUDE is framed by the concept of “Challenge by Choice”, where participants choose their own level of contribution, challenge and involvement in an empowering environment of group support and achievement.
