Adventure Training and Team Building
Adventure training & team building complements both individual and collective development and should be:
- Planned and executed with proper supervision by qualified staff
- Have well defined objectives, with clear instruction
- Provide mental stimulation by exposure to the perceived element of risk
- Stimulate initiative and teamwork
Throughout our programs participants face personal challenges and as a group work together to achieve a common goal, often in alien environments, understanding and camaraderie is key to success.
