"Peak Performance is the most outstanding ’outside resource’ that we have ever used for team building activities. We have utilized the challenge course at Big Bear on several different occasions with every level of management within our organization, and with groups from 10 to 100. [Peak Performance has] always worked with us to get the most out of our dollar, not only while we did the activities, but also in the pre-screening process and the follow up. Another reason I highly recommend and respect the team at Peak Performance is that we have used the challenge course on all our events, but we have requested a different outcome for each group and they develop the program around our desired end result, not their set program. Cedar Lake is also one of the most beautiful places to get away from ’it all’ and learn something at the same time. We have never been disappointed with any part of the programs with Peak Performance and encourage any company to invest in the development of their teams through this Company."
