Join non-profit World T.E.A.M. in our annual Adventure Team Challenge Colorado this September 5-8, 2019. Participating athletes will travel to the remote Rancho del Rio resort in the high Gore Mountain Range north of Eagle. Cellular telephone service does not serve this isolated fishing and water sports resort on the banks of the Colorado River, and most participants will camp outside in tents during the duration of the program.
After getting to know their teammates and outdoor equipment through onsite training and practice, athletes will complete two daily stages of the Challenge. From the base camp at Rancho del Rio, they will ride mountain bikes and specially-designed hand cycles on single and double-track trails, raft the Colorado River through challenging whitewater rapids, locate back country checkpoints and ascend granite outcroppings and rappel back to the ground. Team members work closely together throughout the Challenge, solving technical challenges as well as learning that cooperation allows for easier and more timely completion of each stage. By Saturday evening as the program concludes with a celebratory dinner and campfire party, athletes recognize they have learned new outdoor skills they can take home with them. Perhaps more importantly, each participant has made new friends who will remain a part of their life.
