About the Course

Outdoor Course

The Four Arrows Challenge Course is located at 14 Sherman Place, Storrs, CT 06269 at the UConn Depot Campus and is home to 25 low challenge course elements. All challenge course elements are inspected each calendar year and meet the Association for Challenge Course Technology (ACCT) standards. Our Four Arrows staff is comprised of UConn staff and students who complete a facilitation and safety training annually.

The course is solely made up of low elements, which are group-oriented challenges that are on or near ground level. These elements do not require any special safety system other than diligent spotting by group members. Low elements are the heart of the challenge course experience and provide an introduction to the power of the Adventure model. The emphasis is on full participation, trusting others, and creative thinking.

Our elements are nested in the wooded areas of Depot Campus, so participants get the fullest experience of being in nature despite the proximity to the main campus. The setting is ideal for your group to focus on problem solving, teamwork, and communication, among other group dynamics.

Indoor Course

We also provide indoor course options to groups during times in which weather keeps you inside. Four Arrows owns many portable elements that achieve similar experiences to the ones found at our outdoor course. The limitations on these courses are based on space availability, group size, and what the group would like to accomplish for their experience.
