What We Offer
Our facilitators work with you and your group to provide a unique experience to enhance the performance of your team through experiential education. Experiential education is a holistic approach which incorporates physical activity while also providing social and emotional challenges.
Our program uses an experiential learning approach involving the principles of action and reflection. Action involves hands on decision-making and group problem solving activities. Reflection is the processing of the skills used in the activities and then relating them to real life experience.
We develop a specific goal directed program to meet each group's purpose for participating. The activities we choose assist in promoting individual and group change. Goals can include, but are not limited to: team cohesion, conflict resolution, problem solving, trust, communication skills, leadership skills and self esteem building.
Our program is recognized under the acronym R.O.P.E.S. The acronym exemplifies the program's overall philosophy:
