Challenge Course: To Promote Effective Communication 

Our courses emphasize the importance of working together. Children learn to divide responsibilities and support one another in undergoing difficult activities. Our Ropes Challenge course is a great example of how important it is to communicate and solve problems together. 

Our Geodesic Dome course is also focused on developing problem-solving and critical thinking abilities, as students participate in hands-on construction they are required to analyze and overcome challenges by communicating. 

Raft Building Course: To Build Trust & Leadership

Activities that create opportunity for students to take lead and  trust one another to do the work is an important aspect for kids to experience. Through our Raft Building course, we provide an exercise for kids to construct rafts in a collaborative and exciting environment. The students learn to place trust in one another’s skills and develop first-hand experience with unexpected challenges during the raft-building process that ultimately introduce the idea and skills of leadership. If gaining confidence, learning to make decisions and taking responsibility for the actions of their peers, is what you are after, Raft Building is a great program to consider. 

Wilderness Survival: To Provide Self-Reliance & Problem-Solving  

Enrolling in the Wilderness Survival course offered by Wonder Valley Outdoor Education presents a unique opportunity for students to enhance their teamwork and skills. Through immersive experiences in wilderness settings, students are challenged to work collaboratively to overcome various survival scenarios. The course encourages effective communication, delegation of tasks, and problem-solving within a team dynamic. By relying on each other’s strengths and fostering trust, students learn the importance of cooperation in unique environments. 

Additionally, the course hones critical skills such as navigation, shelter building and fire making, which are essential for survival in the wild. These hands-on experiences not only promote self-reliance but also foster resilience, adaptability, and quick thinking. Overall, the Wilderness Survival course equips students with valuable teamwork and survival skills that can be applied in various real-life situations, enhancing their overall personal and professional development.
