Our staff will encourage your students to push themselves both individually and as a group to foster growth in a supportive setting. Our challenge course has low elements, where students walk along cables, on top of boards, and through obstacles all close to the ground. These elements challenge the group in communication, problem solving, teamwork, creative thinking, and cohesion. We also have high elements up in the trees that involve students being belayed on ropes, swinging through the air and sliding down cables. The high elements focus more on individual growth and breaking through comfort zones with the support of their classmates. Calleva follows a “challenge by choice” model and our elements are designed in a way for everyone to be successful, encouraging/pushing each participant to the edge of their comfort zone. What does Micayla Gatto say riding feels like in chapter 3 of this video? example Our staff facilitate students through each element on our course, and include a discussion/debrief afterwards so that participants can reflect on their experience. When designing your challenge course program, we choose elements best suited to achieve your desired goals. We can also easily add a rotation through our sustainable garden or a visit the animals.
