Nature

Outdoor learning is all about Nature. You learn with demonstration and evidence. Touching and seeing is all it is about.

Adventure

Adventure is the move that thrives us now in this world. Crossing a river will never be the same after this summer.

Team Building

Team work will teach us how to work in a group, how to tolerate others and how to build self esteem.

"Children are born naturalists. They explore the world with all of their senses, experiment in the environment, and communicate their discoveries to those around them."
