T.R.U.S.T. Course

Available at Nebraska State 4-H Camp and at Eastern Nebraska 4-H Center

The T.R.U.S.T. Course (Teams Reaching Understanding and Success Together) is a unique program that provides groups and individuals the opportunity to develop eight skills: Teamwork, Trust, Leadership, Communication, Problem Solving, Decision Making, Self-Esteem, and Planning.

Our T.R.U.S.T. courses provide participants of all ages the unique educational experiences that are fun, active, challenging, and places a high level of expectation within an atmosphere of support and caring.

The T.R.U.S.T. Course program involves a sequence of hands-on and experiential activities that incorporate all individuals into significant roles of contribution, trust, and support within the team. The facilitator guides participants through stretching, trust building, problem solving initiatives, low ropes course elements and high ropes course elements. The greatest benefit of the T.R.U.S.T. Course experience is the atmosphere of support, caring and fun which results when people unite in purpose to achieve a common goal!

Low Elements 
Initiatives are one portion of the T.R.U.S.T. course that gets everyone in the team and group involved. There are a series of low elements (activities) to challenge groups by completing team building initiatives. Low elements are 3-10 feet above the ground or less. Low elements do not require the use of belays or ropes.

High Elements 
High elements require the use of ropes and belay equipment and other safety gear.  Participants will climb to a height greater than 10 feet. Team members enjoy the challenge of the high ropes course. As an experience evolves, participants are higher off of the ground as they navigate across the "High Wire/Pole Course" or climb the "Climbing Tower" then repel down.  Participants also have the opportunity to zip down the "Zip Line."  High elements provide a challenge for individual participants; however, with group support, they can push their boundaries and overcome personal obstacles.


Odyssey Course

Available at Eastern Nebraska 4-H Center

In addition to the T.R.U.S.T. Course, Eastern Nebraska 4-H Center also offers a state-of-the-art high ropes challenge course called the Odyssey Course. The Odyssey Course is a unique high element challenge course that provides groups an intense teambuilding experience which highlights the objectives of cooperation, trust, communication, and adventure. The Odyssey Course represents the next generation in challenge course design and adventure based programming. Unlike traditional courses, this unique design allows teams of eight to complete challenges 20 - 35 feet in the air as the group moves between elements and accomplishes goals together. Whether your team is a group working together for the first time or is already established, a Challenge Course experience at the Eastern Nebraska 4-H Center can build teamwork, trust, and communication.
