Tucson Team Building Events

Venture Up began in Arizona in 1983, but the initial roots sprang from Tucson, where the founders attended the University of Arizona. It was here, in the late 1970s, that David Lengyel began teaching rock climbing on campus and at Mount Lemmon, and later lead caving trips at Wingfield Ranch near the Nogales border.

Since then, Venture Up evolved by into the nation’s leading provider of team building events, with more than 250,000 participants in our programs. We work with people of all shapes, sizes and backgrounds. We also offer team building in the Valley, Prescott, Flagstaff and Tucson.

Tucson area clients include: Singapore Helicopter, Ritz Carlton, Lockheed Martin, Davis-Monthan AFB, IBM, Honeywell, Ratheon, U of A, Carondolet, Asarco, Citi, Union Pacific.
