A.B.E.L.

ADVENTURE BASED EXPERIENTIAL LEARNING

MadTrek offers a wide variety of Adventure Education programming. Adventure Education asks students to step outside of their “comfort zone” to learn more about who they are and how they interact with others. While done in an environment that focuses on safety, the challenges presented by adventure activities create opportunities to explore issues of trust, overcoming fear, self-confidence and teamwork.

WHY A.B.E.L.?

In adventure-based learning programmes the teacher or facilitator challenges a group to achieve a goal, but does not explain how to successfully complete the challenge. Students must work to find a solution individually and together as a team, and must communicate and learn from each other in order to be successful.

Students begin to recognize the inner resources, strengths, and positive qualities within themselves and within their team. Reflecting and debriefing on the experience or “adventure” afterwards allows them to learn more about both their personal behavior and contributions as well as the group’s, and relate it back to their everyday lives and routines to create positive change.

Positive change often occurs when students, individually and in groups, face problem-solving or risk-taking situations. Adventure-based learning programmes have proven to be successful in meeting both educational and personal goals and conduct them in a safe, managed environment.

TAKE THE CHALLENGE. ENJOY THE ADVENTURE.
