How do I book a Challenge program?recadmin2023-04-22T23:43:33-04:00
Courses require, at minimum, a two-week advance for booking. For larger groups more advanced notice is preferred.
After filling out a reservation, a Challenge course team member will reach out to you within 2 – 3 days. We will confirm some details of your program, and gather more information to develop the program based on your team’s needs.
Where is the Challenge Course located?recadmin2023-04-22T23:51:30-04:00
Rez Days – Here’s your chance to come up on the course and play! During our Rez Days we provide a variety of activities that can include sections of the high course to try, zip jumps, and the giant swing.
Escape Room Demos – Experience a 10-minute taste test of our one-hour program! Our Escape room is portable, so keep an eye out for when we bring it on campus!
Crate Stacking – Imagine yourself 15 feet off the ground balancing on a stack of milk crates. Don’t worry, you’ll be properly secured to a rope just like at the climbing wall! We will teach you how to build a tower of milk crates while simultaneously climbing the stack. Show up and get your stack on!
What ability level is required?recadmin2023-04-22T23:55:59-04:00
We recommend half day programs (3-4 hours) occur from 8 or 9 AM until 12 Noon, or from 1 to 5 PM. These times are recommended due to typical lunch times. We have realized that hangry people do not team build as effectively!
Mornings are typically more popular, as it is less likely to storm.
How does payment work?recadmin2023-04-22T23:59:56-04:00
Rate is determined by the type of attendees, not the organizer. For example, an FSU employee booking a course for their friends who are not affiliated with FSU will not receive FSU pricing. Click here for Course Themes and Rates
Pay by credit card online or check. Checks should be made out to FSU Campus Recreation. FSU groups will be billed through the Internal Purchase Order process.
Invoices are made and sent after the program is completed. It is based on the type of program and the number of participants that attended. We will charge for the actual number of participants or 80% of your declared number of participants; whichever is larger.
Participants will have up to 48 hours before their program to contact FSU Challenge and adjust their group size.
How does weather affect the programs?recadmin2023-04-23T00:00:40-04:00
