Programs: Teams Recreational Environmental Experience (TREE)
The TREE (Teams Recreational Environmental Experience) Program is a team-building/low-ropes initiatives program at Kettunen Center designed for ages 10 years and older. The indoor and outdoor activities and initiatives are designed to help the group focus on team skills such as communication, trust, leadership-followship, self-esteem, decision-making and problem-solving.
The activities include warm-up activities, goal setting, low-ropes team building initiatives emphasizing safety, and group processing. The goal is to give the group an opportunity to address specific issues for effective team development. The initiatives and other team building activities include group juggle variations, toxic waste, stepping stones, spider's web, wild woosey, the wall, islands of safety, artesian beams, fidget ladder, whale watch and more.
School groups, 4-H and other youth clubs and home school families of 12 youth or more can schedule a one-day program any time of the year by contacting the Kettunen Center program staff. The fee for the TREE Program is on a per student basis with lodging and meals for an additional cost.
The TREE Program has proved to be a great addition to an adult conference at Kettunen Center as a get acquainted session, setting the stage for planning meetings or the theme of a retreat. Our certified instructors are prepared to meet the needs of each group and facilitate a safe, fun and effective way to work on group issues and enhance team dynamics.
