Our Story

The Stowe Heights Challenge Course is managed and staffed by Community Youth Concepts (CYC), a community-driven organization providing volunteer service opportunities and career-based mentoring to Iowa youth and adult participants. 

Community Youth Concepts was founded in 2008 with the vision of an Iowa where all youth have access to high-quality opportunities that prepare them for success in school, work, and life.

To accomplish this vision, CYC engages in two core strategies comprising their mission: offer high-quality youth development programming and provide coaching, training, and technical assistance to youth and youth-serving professionals.

What is a challenge course?

A challenge course is a combination of mental and physical challenges requiring groups to work as a team to accomplish goals. Through a series of fun and unusual activities, participants learn valuable information about themselves, each other, and the group as a unit. By removing people from their usual environment and placing them in a new, unique setting, a challenge-course experience fosters shared learning, openness, and cooperation. 

Our Clients Say

"The Stowe Heights Portable Program was such an amazing experience for our adult team. Not only did we have an opportunity to get to know each other and have fun, but we were able to learn about how team members best communicate and work together. We participated in a two-hour program, but the time went by so fast, I wish we had booked the entire day! The facilitators did an amazing job working with our group of 30 and ensuring that all activities were thoughtful, engaging, and provided time to debrief. We will book again!"
