Portland Rock Gym offers group climbing events as an exciting way to build camaraderie among your office, school, or religious group.  Participants will spend time together outside of their normal routine in a fun, challenging, and supportive environment.  Group events range from group belays–where the participants’ main activity is climbing–to team building events that are custom designed to fit your groups’ needs. Both activities require prior reservation and payment in advance.



What is Team Building?

Team building activities are stimulating problem solving tasks and trust initiatives designed to help group members develop their capacity to work effectively together. Many team building and initiative tasks are simple games that require thinking outside the box. Others are more complex thinking intensive elements with some physical demands, designed for specific needs and outcomes.

Team building is often used in meetings, presentations, workshops, training seminars, education programs and also in therapeutic and correctional settings. These exercises can be adapted for virtually any setting, young or old, large or small, and across cultures.

An important part of the experience is the role that the facilitator takes in the group. A skilled facilitator and a group’s willingness to participate are the keys to a positive experience. Portland Rock Gym’s facilitators have years of professional experience working with a wide variety of groups and can make even the simplest of games a significant learning experience.


Team Building Offerings

We offer two to four hour workshops that are custom designed to meet your specific groups’ needs. Our skilled facilitators use a variety of initiative games, low and high elements, as well as rock climbing to help build trust, teamwork, communication, or just as a means to escape the stress of everyday life.
