Adventure Training or Adventure Learning is a branch of the Experiential Learning Concept (ELC). In short the ELC is the learning method of “learning by doing with reflection”. It is based on the belief that people will learn more effectively by physically and actively participating in the learning process. It is based on the theory that experiences may not necessarily result in learning however experiences, which are reflected upon and analyze in a positive and structured manner will result not only in learning but also growth. Hence Adventure Training is a learning process that encourages Active Participation and results in effective learning and positive growth through Synthesis and Reflection.
Adventure Training focus mainly on interpersonal and intrapersonal relationships. The process involves the use of adventurous activities that provide groups and individuals with compelling tasks to accomplish. These activities can range from land to sea, from group project work to individual challenges. The activities will expose the participants to situations that may give rise to confusion, conflicts, disagreements, doubts and fear. Through these experiences they will learn about adapting to change, planning, decision-making, teamwork, communication, leadership and trust. Individually, the participants will learn to overcome self-imposed perceptions of their capabilities and how to turn limitations into abilities. Participants will learn more about themselves and at the same time they will learn how to relate and work better with others
