We focus on group development and team building using an experiential education model to help establish effective communication, relationship building, character development and the acquisition of 21st Century Life Skills.

Brenda Moore

Matt has been working as an experiential educator and group facilitator since the late 90’s. He is an Alum of the Recreation Department at nearby SUNY Cortland receiving both his Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees there. He has held full-time challenge course coordinator positions for both Syracuse University and Cornell University and has documented over 5000 hours of challenge course and group facilitation experience. He is a proud dad of 6 year old twins.

Brenda infuses her passion for living life to its fullest into everything she does. She brings 20+ years of educating, coaching and facilitating to each program and individual she works with. Brenda has a Master's degree of Science & Education and a Bachelor’s in Physical Education / Recreation. She has worked with multiple diverse programs both domestically and internationally varying from youth programs, adults and corporations. Through activities that can range from using both high & low challenge course elements to portable activities and small to large scale scavenger hunt style races, Brenda has facilitated experiences for groups of all sizes. She has brought her unique style to groups in some amazing locations such as Fenway park, dream like beaches and downtown cities and parks. Each individual she works with walks away with an engaging team-building experience to learn from. In her free time, Brenda enjoys hiking, kayaking, traveling, concerts and spending time with her family and friends.  "My greatest joy is seeing people grow right in front of me. They are trusting me to deliver a safe and effective custom designed program where they can be vulnerable, take on a leadership role, gain trust and build positive healthy relationships with one another".
