We, the “Explore the Wilderness” organization, believe in the holistic educational development of the child. We believe that the accumulation of adventurous experiences can help developed an active approach to education in particular and to life in general. Students learn how to overcome what may seem to be insurmountable obstacles, surmountable. They marvel at their own ingenuity for survival and they gain self-confidence after each experience.

Becoming involved with new people, in new environments promotes effective learning in all aspects. In addition, they learn to live together and tolerate each other. Our team building activities are highly interactive. Participants will learn to work together to achieve common goals under challenging circumstance.

They participate in unforgettable experiences that challenge them in many exciting ways and full of character development. We make your event fun, memorable and most importantly recreate the results and benefits of the training back in the school environment.
