Welcome to EPIC Adventures
EPIC Adventures is a team of trained, experienced leaders, trainers and facilitators specializing in corporate leadership training/team building and adventure therapy training and consultation.
Team building is the process of turning a group of individual employees into a cohesive team, a group of people organized to work together interdependently and cooperatively to meet the needs of their customers and accomplishing their purpose and goals. Team building generally involves structured activities and exercises that employees participate in either in the office or outside the office environment. EPIC Adventures is the premier, adventure-based team building provider in the South Florida and Treasure Coast area!
Adventure therapy is an emerging, cutting-edge treatment model in the psychotherapy field, which focuses on physically active and experiential approaches that engage, challenge and educate. These activities are designed to embody lessons and skills that teach individuals how to overcome life’s difficult situations and gain valuable personal insights. We utilize physical activity, the natural environment and specially designed experiential activities that elicit powerful emotions and allow you the opportunity to practice coping mechanisms in a real-world environment followed by in depth processing, gentle yet powerful challenges, and environmental inspiration. We believe that learning and change is an ACTIVE process and therapy needs to take us out of our comfort zones and into new, exciting adventures.
Founded in January 2016, EPIC Adventures is the culmination of a dream. Co-owners and founders Mike Phillips and Ricky Santiago met while working together at an adventure-based substance abuse treatment center and found they shared the same passion for adventure-based treatment and a desire to bring these powerful interventions to everyone both in corporate and therapeutic settings – this is the heart of and mission of EPIC Adventures!!
Whether you are young or old, an athlete or a couch potato, a social butterfly or an introvert, EPIC Adventures can help you and/or your team launch your great journey of transformation!!
