Team Building Programs

Billy Wilken is a renowned ropes course and team building expert, well versed at all ages and energy levels. His impact at a corporate level is sought after nationally.

Now based out of Fort Mill, he offers his expertise to the greater Charlotte area.

Here is one testimonial: "When I spoke to Billy Wilken, he had great ideas for our three-day training program. Billy and his staff developed several team building initiatives that not only made training more exciting for our counselors, but they took our policies and procedures manual and incorporated the information into the initiatives...Since the entire summer staff training was a huge success, I went on to request Billy Wilken and his group to set up something similar for our RECenter full time programming staff.  The team building day was very successful and staff often request more of them."
