Parents and children grow together with Team QUEST

Team QUEST is an Experiential Education program based at Piney Lake, UNCG’s Experiential Campus. The program develops and facilitates a variety of programs tailored specifically for each group’s desired outcomes. Experiential education allows individuals and groups to learn through deep and meaningful interactions that are fun and exciting. Through an integrated hands-on approach to learning life-skills, intentional activity selection and facilitated discussions, Team QUEST is capable of offering life-changing programs for all involved.

The program “Parents and Children Grow together with Team QUEST” offers experiences focused on communication, building trust, problem solving, conflict resolution and much more while focusing on developing the parent/child relationship. It will provide you and your child with a safe place for open communication and growth while allowing you to have an experience you will talk about and share for a long time to come.

The first half of the full-day experience will include a variety of ground initiatives and activities that will develop healthy communication skills, team problem solving, and cooperation. During the afternoon, you will have the opportunity to ascend Team QUEST’s high ropes course. While harnessed into the course, you and your child will work together as a team to complete each challenge. After each activity, the experienced facilitators will guide you through a thoughtful conversation in order to delve into the lessons learned from the day and how you can use these lessons moving forward.
