Aim: Through the processes of Experiential Learning and using the Outdoors as a catalyst we aim to promote personal growth and group development  through the use of carefully controlled, challenging experiences. The  program is designed to develop a growing sense of competence in dealing  with the natural environment with a strong emphasis on safety. The program is challenging, combining physical and developmental activities  with the overall aim of enhancing the student's self-reliance, increasing their confidence in their own abilities and assisting them in learning to cooperate and work with others through controlled experiences.

Using the outdoors creates a great learning environment with this in perspective we deliver our programs based on the following priorities;-

  •  SAFETY being aware of one’s own safety and the safety of other members in the group.
  • To offer an ENJOYABLE experience, to feel really good about "oneself" and being with "others" in the group.
  • NEW EXPERIENCES, which in turn lead in to Learning Experiences
  • TRANSFERRING the experience, APPLYING to everyday life
