Confidence will be built in all the participants as they push themselves to complete a number of different high rope activities.

These skills hope to be grown in a relaxed and fun environment where the beauty of nature will be appreciated by all. The group will do a short hike to watch the sun rise or set, canoe over magnificent waters and search the skies for shooting stars.

Description
This impactful course focuses on emotional awareness and personal growth. Participants will be guided through a number of different activities designed to develop a positive sense of self, a deeper understanding of one’s own ability and an appreciation for the importance of relying on others. It is designed to strengthen the participants’ connection with themselves, others and the natural outdoor environment.
Participants will be given the opportunity to push themselves through attempting various high rope activities. These provide practical experiences of facing their fears and proving to themselves that they can achieve more than they had previously thought. Participants will also motivate each another and learn how they can be supportive physically and emotionally to others.
In order to grow the groups bond, trust and teamwork, they will face challenges such as the Berlin Wall, Spider’s Web and Limpopo Swing. These activities are designed to get the participants communicating, planning and working together as a team. Creative problem solving will be used as well as reliance on one another. They will combine their skills and abilities to build a raft together that they will paddle out onto the water. This provides a strong sense of communal achievement and gives a fun opportunity to splash and be silly in the water.
The course will focus on enjoying the outdoor space. The group will do a short hike to watch the sun rise or set, star gaze and paddle canoes in stunning natural surroundings. Groups can choose to camp in tents in order to truly embrace the outdoor experience. Participants will be encouraged to spend some peaceful time of introspection in nature during the course.
Difficult experiences and lessons learnt will be shared around a bonfire in the evening. This is a great time for participants to give each other positive feedback and reflect upon their own strengths and weaknesses. The course provides an alternative therapeutic environment for those facing periods of growth and change. It is a tangible way of learning and becoming more accepting of yourself and others
