Do you have people on your team struggling to unlock their true potential? Are you looking for ways to identify team members for leadership roles?


Survival Systems USA offers a leadership and team development experience to boost self-confidence, presence, and instill calmness in the face of personal adversity. For many people, participating in an unfamiliar experience or overcoming a fear gives them a sense of confidence in themselves. Sharing breakthrough experiences with others builds meaningful relationships and lasting trust within the team. When groups perform above their own expectations in our controlled environment, it translates well back in the ‘real world’ where problems they deal with at work or home seldom have the same gravity (although can feel overwhelming). The Survival Systems USA experience emphasizes spontaneous leadership, confronting personal adversity, stepping outside of your comfort zone, and learning to work with the resources and limitations available to accomplish tasks. How will you respond when faced with your next challenge?

Leadership & Team Building

Here's what we're talking about


Leadership & Team Development

Members of our team completed the leadership and team development course at a very crucial and tense time. It was remarkable to see the transformation from the second we walked in the door to the second we walked out of the door in terms of attitude, communication, and optimism. The course gave the team a fun and unconventional opportunity to get out of the workplace and away from the day-to-day stress and immerse themselves in a team bonding experience. After the training, I have witnessed increased confidence in participants and a bond that cannot be broken. “DITCHING DITCHING DITCHING,” is a common line spoken in meetings, in the hall, and as an ice-breaking story. I will be forever grateful for the role that Survival Systems USA played in making our team that much stronger." - Kelly Sullivan, Director of Organizational Development Mohegan Sun


"Such a good experience! Had a wonderful time. Learned to survive a plane crash. Excellent leadership and team-building event!" - Sam Lundin, CEO Vimbly


"In my business we change our clients lives - This course has changed our lives" - Greg Drab, Owner

"I have a serious fear of water and heights - Having the support of your team members and the instructors gives you the extra boost of confidence you need to just do it" - Renee Grady, Head Coach

Listen as Pat shares his experience of putting his hard-working team through survival training.

- Pat Chambly, Dominion Energy

"We were asked to try and get across the pool together as if we had just crash landed - It really brought out our communication skills"

- Vippy Yee, Assistant Director of Volunteer Programs
