  1. I think it would be good to see an article about research done on the challenge course industry. In particular, I’d like to know what research has been done to show the benefits of challenge courses (traditional and pay to play). I’m a grad student and a couse manager and am currently working on a research project of my own about how challenge course trainings effect communication and encouragement among teams.
