At EMPOWER Leadership & Adventure Center, we use strategies taken from the United States Army, adventure recreation, and experiential education to provide recreational adventures, leadership training, and team building activities for groups and individuals. We believe in the power of adventure to empower individuals and increase positive leadership skills. If you are looking for a boost in self-confidence to better prepare you for life’s challenges, an EMPOWER Adventure can help. If your team works in a demanding and stressful environment, you want your employees to feel confident in their abilities – EMPOWER Leadership & Adventure Center can help. We offer unique adventures for anyone interested in expanding their comfort zone in a safe, structured and exciting way.
This motto embodies the belief that your thoughts and frame of mind can empower you or drag you down. We believe confidence is key to achieving what you want. Our programs and activities are designed to build you up through positive adventure experiences. You’ll leave us feeling more confident and better prepared for the demands of the world.
We provide leadership training and empower you to find the best in yourself with adventure activities like our EMPOWER zip line. Other services include compass scavenger hunts, tree climbing adventures, and corporate team building activities. With our EMPOWER Personal Leadership Odyssey, you can tell us your goals, and we will customize your experience. We also provide youth leadership activities, sports leadership activities, and adventure camps. If you just want to zip line in Connecticut with your friends and family, we can help with that, too!
We design our adventures to push your limits without offering ‘real world’ consequences. These high-reward, low-risk activities give you every opportunity to succeed in areas you never thought possible. Developing leadership skills will be important to success, and we promise to help you with immediate feedback. Team building activities also develop communication, strengthen coworker relationships and create a result-driven mentality. Success leads to feelings of achievement and confidence that your team can bring back to the workplace.
EMPOWER Leadership Sports & Adventure Center started as an idea in the head of our founder Joe DeRing back in 2006. Joe DeRing spent eight years in the U.S. Army. Obstacle courses and confidence training have long been staples of the U.S. Army. Joe not only loved these training environments but also saw the potential to use them as leadership development programs. In 2009 this dream became a reality and EMPOWER Leadership Sports & Adventure Center was born.
We encourage you to browse our website, watch videos of our zip line adventures and read up on all the fun programs and activities we offer. If you have any questions or are interested in making a reservation, contact us at EMPOWER Leadership & Adventure Center today. We’d love to help you out and get you started on your path to Empowerment!
