Experiential Learning is the use of experiences in the outdoors for recreation, education and development purposes.We offer a variety of programmes for students, which can be offered in increasing levels to the various standards in schools, colleges and other educational institutions, to encourage an evolving and lasting attitude toward being aware about the world we live in, and the people we live among. Our programs present students with realistic outdoor challenges within safe and fun environments.
