Adventure education

The objective of adventure education activities is to produce positive experiences and strengthen participants’ capability to work in a group.

Mission

With the help of adventure education, which supports communal spirit and participation, we help young people find their strengths as individuals and group members. Adventure exercises in groups strengthen the ability to take others into consideration, increase trust within the group and train the ability to make decisions as a group.

Feedback discussions are an essential part of adventure education activities

After the exercises and activities, the group discusses what happened during the exercise or activity, how it felt, what was learned from it and how the lessons learned affect the participants’ own lives. Environmental education is often taken into account. The special needs and wishes of groups are taken into account during the planning of adventure activities.
