"Larry at Upward Enterprises did a fantastic job in getting our group of reluctant and unmotivated teens to work together and ultimately have fun. Many of our group members had quite a bit of anxiety leading up to the activities but your facilitator was able to motivate and encourage them in a way that helped them in being successful in meeting their personal goals."

Carroll County Youth Service Bureau Westminster MD (2015)

-Joe Breen, Scoutmaster Troop 3, Rockville Maryland (2015)

"We had a great time. Your facilitator was really great with my students, especially the ones who were unsure of doing a few of the zipline activities. The one thing I would change is to spend more time there. I'm sure there were plenty of activities for us to do that we didn't get to experience."
-Jen Milam, Assistant Director of Student Activities,  Stevenson University (2014)

"We had a great time on the course this past Sunday. Your facilitator crew was excellent. They did a great job fostering camaraderie among the boys in the group. My only regret is that I didn't have an opportunity to ride the Giant Swing! Maybe next time.

Larry, Dave, Travis, and all the other folks were just superb - very professional, great with the girls, able to connect with them and really push(ed) them to do things they didn't think they could do.
