Our mission is to provide quality learning experiences that promote growth and nourish the development of individuals of all ages and backgrounds.
As an educational non-profit organization, Genesee Valley has been serving children and adults for thirty-three years. We are located in Parkton, Maryland, just twenty-five minutes north of Baltimore City and 30 minutes south of York, Pennsylvania. One of our primary goals is to develop more cohesive and effective groups in the classroom, at the office, and on the field.
Our Experiential Education Program utilizes our challenge course to actively focus on developing improved communication, cooperation, healthy risk-taking, leadership, trust, persistence and creative problem solving skills. Individuals of all ages come to our outdoor learning center to engage in games and problem solving activities, which utilize the low and high ropes course elements. Although fun is high on our priority list, there is more to it than that; our facilitators ‘debrief’ participants after activities and use the course to discuss ways to meet everyday life head on. Participants grow through both verbal discussions and physical challenges.
In addition to our innovative and unique teambuilding programs (with an overnight camping option) we also offer, Summer Camp, off-site team building programs (year-round), and off-site rockclimbing expeditions.
Our 150-acre facility is also host to lacrosse, soccer, football, and field hockey practices and tournaments, trail runs, and family or corporate picnics. With all that our programs and property have to offer, we serve nearly 15,000 individuals annually.
