The Adventure Education Center (AEC) & SuperGames is a non-profit organization that works with over 500,000 participant's a year. The variety of programs we offer has allowed us to interact and collaborate with a number of different kinds of groups, including those from schools, colleges, churches, corporations, and local communities. Our aim as an organization is to provide experiences and service that exceed our client's needs and expectations.
The AEC began in 1982 as a way for graduate students who were attending The Ohio State University to continue to develop as educators while working with youth in an outdoor setting. Drawing on an educational philosophy that emphasized the significance of concrete experiences, AEC participants took part in a variety of high adventure activities designed to boost self-confidence, develop a sense of trust, enhance communication, and most importantly have fun!
Today, the AEC is home to one of the most extensive challenge course facilities in the Midwest. With a total of 5 high ropes courses, 1 high elements course, a 150 ft. zip line, as well as a low ropes initiatives challenge course, the AEC is capable of accommodating large groups eager for an exciting and educational experience. Located at Camp Lazarus, just north of I-270 and the Columbus, Ohio metropolitan area, the AEC is extremely accessible for groups located all throughout Ohio.
The popularity of the AEC led to the creation of Adventure Camp, a summer day camp specializing in unique outdoor adventure experiences for kids in grade levels K-9. Each themed camp (i.e. Pirates, Knights, Ultimate, and others) offered by the Adventure Camp encompasses a wide variety of outdoor activities, guaranteed to be jam-packed full of fun.
Due to the overwhelming success of the AEC and Adventure Camp, SuperGames was created in order to provide schools that could not afford to come to the AEC with quality event programs. Today, over 60 schools in the Columbus, Ohio area look forward to SuperGames Fun Day each year in celebration of a successful academic year.
From its humble beginnings, SuperGames has become a leader in the event planning and corporate team building industry. With over 300 activities and inflatables to choose from, SuperGames has something for everyone. Whether you are looking for a portable climbing wall, a giant inflatable bounce, or the latest interactive gaming system, SuperGames can deliver. Our top of the line activities combined with our creative, fun-loving staff has made for the ultimate combination in event planning.
While SuperGames has served as an event planner for a variety off-site school, community, and company events, we offer a number of indoor event options as well. In 2005 AEC/SuperGames moved into a new 25, 000 square foot indoor facility, in Worthington, Ohio. That facility has created numerous program opportunities for indoor team building programs, as well as indoor inflatable events.
The AEC & SuperGames is quite possibly one of the most innovative event and teambuilding companies in the Midwest. In providing fun and exciting programs for participants of all ages - we strive to bring people together and create experiences that will last a lifetime!
