Learning through adventure and activity based programs is proven to be one of the most effective ways of building communication, listening, teamwork, and leadership skills. This method of learning greatly increases people’s self-esteem and confidence, as well as decision making skills. ‘Learning through adventure’ programs are suitable for everyone from school children, university students, corporate employees and the community in general.
- Gain individual and group awareness
- Enhance communication and leadership skills
- Improve goal setting, planning and visioning
- Strengthen decision-making and problem solving skills
- Develop a greater appreciation and respect for differences within a group
- Increase team spirit
People who participate in these activities, together with their teammates, learn skills that focus on self-awareness and the integration of mind and body learning. After only one class, students already benefit from the physical, intellectual, emotional and spiritual components of this adventure experience. With a healthy body and mind, students become better learners and employees become better workers, this develops a stronger 'team spirit'.
Why does learning through adventure work so well? It is quite simple, take students in school for example; a student sits in a class listening to a teacher talk, their mind can easily ‘wander’ off, not giving full attention to the subject. Educators have known for decades that the retention of a student’s skills are highest in situations where the student has had the greatest immersion in the learning process. When a student is involved more in the learning process, the greater the understanding of the material and ultimately the greater the retention of the information.
