Adventure Education Programs

Adventure Education refers to

organized learning that takes place in the outdoors. Adventure education programs sometimes involve residential or journey-based experiences in which students participate in a variety of adventurous challenges such as hiking, climbing, canoeing, ropes courses, and group activities. Adventure education draws upon the philosophy, theory, and practices of experiential and environmental education.

The hallmark of wilderness education is its focus on the "outdoor" side of this education; whereas adventure education would focus on the adventure side. Wilderness Adventure education thus involves adventure experiential learning in the wilderness, "where man is but a visitor."

The Wilderness Adventure Education Trust aims to:

• teach how to overcome adversity
• enhance personal and social development
• develop a deeper relationship with nature
• improve problem solving skills
• enhance teamwork
• develop leadership and management skills
• promote spirituality
