Corporate Team building

Through our custom tailored corporate team building programs, we can help you break into a new realm, where you not only have the basics of strong leadership and communication skills, but have established a trust-based relationship platform between team members, based on mutual respect and experience. Learning the building blocks of working together, in your group, involves taking risks in a safe environment, being exposed to challenges in front of peers, and focusing on another in a new setting, outside of the workplace. It also takes dedicated, exceptional facilitators who can tailor their repertoire of skills to match your group's specific needs.

A high-functioning team is the difference between a high functioning company and a mediocre one. High-functioning teams are collaborative, have buy-in from all members, communicate effectively and trust one another. Our activities can help establish these relationships, or refine them, within your team. Call to plan your event with us!

Multi-Day Tree Climbing Course

In a three day course, do you want to learn to canopy tree climb yourself? Maybe you got some awesome trees on your property you would like to climb and check the view out at the top. Or maybe try your hand at climbing in parks and upcoming programs with this fast-developing sport.


This two and half day course will teach you the basics and leave you with a strong foundation of skills and experience to do canopy tree climbing on your own. Additionally, there are upcoming canopy programs in the works with park agencies that this course will prepare you for and allow you to participate.


You will gain knowledge and apply that knowledge in the field, practicing everything you need to know to get up into any size tree and come back down safely. We will go over many different types of gear, climbing techniques and you will have personal instruction from our professional staff every step of the way.


Attire & Supplies

  • Please wear long pants that cover the ankles and high socks. Closed-toe athletic shoes or hiking boots work best.

  • Clothing may encounter tree sap which is difficult to remove

  • Wearing layers on top allows you to regulate temperature better

  • We recommend you bring a reusable water bottles, and snacks to enjoy at the top of the canopy

  • Binoculars, cameras and phones can also be used once in a secure location



Safety is at the core of our business. We outfit climbers with mandatory helmets, harnesses, safety glasses, foot holds and ascenders, all of which meet international climbing standards of the International Climbing and Mountaineering Federation (UIAA). We  comply with Tree Climber's International standards. 


Since the founding of recreational tree climbing, sometime in 1980’s, there have been no known serious accidents or death from recreational tree climbing in more than 30 years with proper equipment, protocols, and while under supervision of an instructor. Simply stated, recreational tree climbing is amazingly safe. As long as you follow the basic rules, protocols and have the right equipment, tree climbing is far safer than most daily activities like riding a bike.


It is the goal of our tree climbing program to go above and beyond the standards. For example, the American National Standards Institute has requirements that arborist rope have a minimum breaking strength of 5000 pounds, while all of our ropes are rated to at least 6,000-12,000 pounds of breaking strength. All of our climbing systems and anchors are also redundant, which is an extra and uncommon safety feature of only our program. 



AdventureTerra cares deeply about the natural world.  We show this more with our actions than with our words. The company has adopted some of the trails in Deception Pass State Park to clean and maintain. We have also instituted a litter removal program that exchanges trashed picked up in the park for a discounted climb.  We offer anyone $5 off per piece of trash collected.

Our programs could not exist without the incredible old-growth trees in the park. We operate in ways that minimize our impact on the trees and surrounding forests, and follow leave-no-trace principals whenever possible.

Lastly AdventureTerra is developing partnerships with conservation organizations like Conservation Northwest out of Bellingham, to promote stewardship efforts.
