Adventure education  

Adventure education aims to build life skills. Challenges are encountered and the group need to explore solutions, be innovative, learn from each attempt, and have the resilience to keep going. Through this collaborative interaction they develop thinking and communication skills, learn to trust and support others, and are often surprised with their outcomes having being confronted by a seemingly insurmountable obstacle. All these skills are required to conquer the challenges and succeed in life ahead. Feelings of empowerment and sense of achievement inspire confidence for future adventures.
“In every walk with nature, one receives far more than he seeks.”
