Adventure learning can accelerate connections made within a group, and is a fun and often novel environment for many people. The tools we have used at High 5 to support individuals and groups in connecting are core to our identity, as they are for many facilitators. High elements often anchor an experience and provide “peak” moments to explore. These high element experiences and other facilitated endeavors will need to look different in the immediate future in response to the need for physical distancing, masking, sanitizing etc.. What core values and attributes of adventure learning will be most relevant in this context? What new frontiers will need to be explored? Which elements do we modify, and which ones do we pause? What needs to be created that doesn’t quite exist yet? Join us as we explore these questions and discover what connections through challenge course use can look like.
This 1-day workshop will begin at 9:00 am, with a break for lunch and will end at 4:00 pm. If you are interested in a custom version of this workshop at your site(Click Here to learn more).
