Students will learn how to work together through a progression of well-sequenced activities, including group initiatives, trust activities, and low and high ropes course challenges. Developing good habits in group cooperation, effective communication, self-confidence, and problem solving leads to a happier and more productive classroom.
Lessons in specific outdoor activities, such as zip-lining,rock climbing, canoeing, and hiking, foster personal growth and respect for the environment in which we live. Whether it is paddling on Cass Pond or hiking the celebrated Mt. Monadnock, adventure education promotes positive moral character and encourages healthy risk-taking among students. We can “learn more in one day of play than in a year of conversation.”
Our most popular offering is a 3-day, 2-night all inclusive program, which is tailored and focused on your schools specific goals and objectives. It is where we see our greatest impact with the kids we serve. With an emphasis on creating community we provide consultations with schools for multi-day programs to consider the values, language and philosophies that you share and foster among your students every day.
Here is an example 3-day program and a list of some of the other activities we run for shorter or longer trips.
The best reason why any school should send us to camp is when the shy kids explode with leadership. I learned teamwork as well, which has made me a better person in countless ways at school and at home.
