Program Overview

Discovery/1: the act or process of discovering; making known or visible, exploring /2: to find truth proceeding from awareness

Project Discovery challenge programs consist of progressive dynamic learning activities. From table top meeting activities to high elements 60 feet in the trees, we have something to challenge every participant and every group. We are the premier provider of  high performance training and adventure learning in the Lake Tahoe basin and beyond.

Our Ropes Challenge Course is located on the Mount Rose Highway at Sky Tavern Park, approximately 20 miles from Reno, or 15 minutes from Lake Tahoe. Our course is one of the largest in the country, with more than 45 elements nestled in the aspen and pine forest. Whether you’re 5 or 75, we have something to for you. Our progressive program will bring you from simple ground elements all of the way up to our 550 foot dual zipline.

If Outdoor Adventure is on your agenda, we’re ready to lead your adventure. Lake Tahoe and the Sierras provide the backdrop for rock climbing, canyoneering, or kayak adventures. Our experienced staff is ready to provide a full service program that your group will not forget.

We also have “portable programs” that can be brought to your school, business or group location. From two hours to several days; indoors or outdoors; kids to adults – we are ready to provide a program that works for your needs.
