Training opportunities for adventure practitioners at all levels.

High 5 is committed to providing affordable, quality workshop experiences that develop program and technical skills in a learning environment that is supportive and fun. Our professional staff takes pride in sharing their wealth of combined knowledge and practical experience with clients.

Specifically, High 5 staff is interested in developing what we call “thinking practitioners.” Now more than ever, as the adventure field continues to grow and develop, there is a greater need for highly skilled people who can apply their knowledge in demanding and ever-changing situations.

Skilled people are the backbone of any adventure program. Here at High 5, our primary goal is to help practitioners develop the skills that will build a strong and safe program.

Our multi-day workshops include a meal plan that offers delicious fare provided by a local caterer. Meals are served buffet family-style in the convenience of the High 5 dining room. Mealtime is an integral part of the whole High 5 workshop experience, and participation in the group meals continues to create cohesiveness in the group and provides an opportunity for on-going dialog.

Our meal plan includes a vegetarian option. Simply specify your request under the Food Request Option on the Registration Form.
