1-2 Hour Program (between 9am-6pm)

Taking place on Western's campus, the primary focus of this program is having fun while getting to know one another. With use of the activity bag, facilitators engage participants in games and initiatives to meet the group's desired outcomes. This program can be tailored to fit the needs of university organizations and groups while breaking down barriers to trust, communication, and group cohesion. These activities can be facilitated just about anywhere on campus and can accommodate a wide variety of group sizes.
