What We Do.
Providing team building and adventure instruction for youth and adults in the DC metropolitan area, GO-Adventures specializes in experience-based training for both individuals and groups. From recreational climbing activities to goals-driven team development initiatives, GO-Adventures will design a program that exceeds your expectations.
GO-Adventures provides a variety of high quality team development options for youth or adult groups, both on-site at our Darnestown, MD facility, or at a location near you. Every team building program is designed to fit the goals of your group, and we can create an experience that will fit your budget.
Participants in a GO-Adventures Adventure Instruction program not only learn the basics of the adventure activity, but also gain new levels of trust, and enhanced communication. We train our adventure guides to not only teach the skills of their sport, but also to read the dynamics of the group and alter the instructional program accordingly.
We have been training outdoor leaders to excel in their chosen activity since 2001 and over the years we have found that a deep understanding of group dynamics is every bit as important to the successful delivery of a teambuilding or adventure instruction program as technical skills and equipment management. A GO-Adventures Teambuilding Facilitation or Adventure Guide certification course takes a balanced approach to training by focusing equally on the soft skills and the hard skills.
Each Group is Unique.
With that in mind, we will work with you to select and refine a teambuilding or adventure instruction program that is the right fit for your organization. Not every activity is appropriate for every group, so taking the time to learn about your group’s particular needs will help us to deliver a great program.
Experience Gifts are the perfect fit for your outdoor enthusiast!

- Let’s Get Started!
Eriq Powers, founder of GO-Adventures, has been a team building facilitator and adventure guide since 1992. Since starting GO-Adventures in 2001, Eriq has been fine-tuning his adventure programs for maximum benefit to his clients. Many of the games and initiatives used in the Portable Team Challenge are used exclusively in GO-Adventures programs. The adventure instruction programs are giving urban youth an opportunity to experience nature and adventure outside of the city – getting them out of their environment and into the woods. The top-roping anchors clinic is helping local climbers become safer climbers and our caving program has been highlighted in The Washington Post, Audubon News, Men’s Journal Magazine and Rolling Stone.
GO-Adventures is small enough to give a personal experience to each and every client, yet large enough to give multiple opportunities – we have something for everyone!
Method of Pricing
Our Method of Pricing
“We understand that every group and every program is unique. With this in mind, our pricing structure is not ‘set in stone,’ but rather adaptable for your group’s goals, time restrictions and budget.
Our goal as a company is to provide a high quality team building or adventure instruction program at a fair price. If we are unable to provide a service within your budget, it is because attempting to do so would lessen the value of what we are offering – and we don’t think this would benefit our clients or our staff. We believe that our team building and adventure instruction programs are extremely valuable, and as such, are worth the price that we charge (if not more!).
“GO-Adventures provides opportunities for individuals and groups to participate in high quality team building programs and adventure sports instruction. The goal is a positive experience through a mixture of teamwork, fun and education.
We feel that people learn and develop from overcoming challenges – our programs are designed to give participants enough challenge to stretch their limits, with enough guidance and instruction to expand them.
Over the years, we have seen clients from a variety of backgrounds and populations – from elementary school students to corporate managers. Many clients in the Maryland, Virginia and Washington DC area have benefited from our team building challenges and adventure sports instruction. We invite you to become another satisfied customer.” – Eriq Powers, Founder
