Eagle Challenge Course


Located at 5820 Buckingham Rd Fort Myers, FL 33905, the Eagle Challenge Course is roughly 18 miles north of main campus. Set amongst 10 acres of green fields and pockets of pine uplands and oak hammocks, the Eagle Challenge Course is the perfect outdoor experiential learning laboratory for you and your group. We offer a variety of programs to best meet your group’s needs and goals. Programs can be customized by duration, program types, and expectations, with our staff selecting the best possible combination of activities for your group to achieve its desired outcomes.


  • Icebreakers, Portables, and Initiatives

  • Low Elements

  • High Elements

  • Standalone High Elements

Nervous? All of our program types operate on the concept of “Challenge by Choice” meaning that participants will be able to choose their own level of challenge. Our staff are aware that each person’s challenge is different, and are respectful of this.

Not sure what is best for your group?  Simply fill out our reservation request form with the dates you are interested in, select the box that says “I'm not exactly sure what program is best for my group.”, and our staff will be in contact within 2-3 days to figure out what type of program is right.
