love adventure-based programs, because they learn best when they are
actively engaged. Experiential education is well known for its ability
to captivate the learner. Whether it be therapy or simply healthy recreation,
adventure-based programs make learning fun! Adventure activities are
ideal tools for skill building in that they teach communication, cooperation,
trust, and problem solving.
Peak Experience offers a host of venues for adventure-based programs.
We can offer onsite programming at your facility or we can provide outdoor
experiences such as rock climbing, hiking, caving, rafting, snow shoeing,
or a ropes course experience. From a group of students working together
in an educational setting to teens struggling to regain their health
in a treatment program, adventure programming can create a more supportive
and productive environment to help clients achieve their goals.
When you are
out there in the woods...it's a big spiritual thing... you can think
about a lot of stuff and change yourself- you don't have to impress
anybody- you can be yourself. CA, 15
Peak Experience helped me a lot- to face my fears and conquer them.
I came back with a lot of patience. I mean if you go up there and expect
to get everything done, right then, right there, you are not going to
make it...I don't think I've ever accomplished anything like that. DH,
We all learned a lot...went into things thinking they were impossible
but we accomplished them. JR, 16
The main thing I learned was to take one step at a time...instead of
getting so far ahead of myself, just look at what I have to do next...I
learned to set small goals to achieve my bigger goals. TC ,15
I had a goal and I accomplished it. I achieved what I came out to do...you
start to achieve more and you start to like yourself more...I know I
can do it if I really try. MW, 15
