Course Description:

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 Exam. (Testing is optional: you must register for the test separately.)  This workshop includes evening sessions until 8:00 on most nights, with the final day wrapping up around 5:00 pm.

This workshop will include:

  • Essential challenge course skills for the operation of low and high challenge course elements including spotting skills training, equipment use, knot tying, belay skills, and risk management techniques.
  • 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.
  • Curriculum development ideas: selecting and sequencing activities for optimal outcomes with different groups.
