Our five-day Adventure Basics training is your gateway to adventure education and challenge course programming skills.
Participants will learn both the basic technical skills of operating a challenge course as well as the facilitation skills essential to sequencing a program to maximize outcomes with participants.
Adventure Basics provides an important first step for both understanding the flow and interplay of a group experience and for learning the skills to run an effective challenge course program.
This workshop will help you prepare and review for the Level 1 Challenge Course Practitioner Certification test. (Testing is optional: you must register for the test separately.)

- A wide variety of icebreakers, warm-ups, cooperative games, and problem solving exercises
- How to create a positive environment for learning, positive group norms and reflection/processing techniques
