Executive Initiative

The executive initiative is a hands-on, experiential seminar designed to help organizations and their leaders survive and succeed in the global community. Executive initiative is not a “sit-down-and-listen-to-a-lecture” style program. On the contrary, it requires participants to get involved, working together to solve problems, make decisions, practice active listening skills and have fun. The course offers a wide range of mental and physical challenges with focus on group process.

Trained and experienced facilitators will supervise all activities and lead processing sessions focused on applying the experience back to the work environment. This experienced-based seminar is highly motivational and well received by organizational leaders as well as employees.

The safety of our participants and staff is a top priority at Covenant Harbor. We maintain high safety standards bolstered by our over 25 years of experience in the experiential education/challenge course program industry.

Though nothing in life is “risk free” we consider ourselves to be expert risk managers, with protocol and appropriate safety equipment to back us up. We routinely perform safety checks on ropes course participants, safety equipment and facilities used in our programs. Our staff participates in seasonal trainings and many are CPR/First Aid certified or Emergency Responders.

We also require low adult to youth ratios so there is maximum supervision of our participants. Our close attention to the details of running a safe facility allow for an effective program where learning and experience is the focus of our guests’ time here.

Covenant Harbor and its programs are accredited by the American Camping Association (ACA). All ropes  course and challenge course facilities are inspected annually by an Association for Challenge Course Technology (ACCT) certified ropes course builder and inspection company.

Cooperation, team building, trust, honesty, respect, responsibility, creative problem solving and fun are all woven into the fabric of each experience.

Our goal is to help build bridges of awareness and action regarding healthy relationships, service, environmental stewardship, and leadership while making learning novel, engaging, safe and fun. 

Programs are custom designed to meet your group’s unique needs, goals and budget.

Executive initiative programs are available year-round. We take weather related precautions when it directly jeopardizes the safety of participants and staff. Many activities take place in the outdoors and are cancelled or postponed in cases of severe weather. The outdoors is one of many powerful learning factors for many program goals and the weather is one of those factors that can enhance the learning objectives.

You will need to book your group experience at least two weeks in advance. The spring and fall seasons are traditionally high demand seasons and may require more advanced booking to reserve your desired dates. Please contact us for additional information.

Covenant Harbor has a variety of meal, snack and lodging options available to meet your needs during your stay.  Meeting space may also be reserved in advance to enhance your team’s retreat success.  Covenant Harbor provides numerous free Wi-Fi hotspots to enable you to keep important contact during breaks.
