To succeed in today’s incredibly complex world you need more than an education. You need personal, social and emotional skills that allow you to believe in yourself, work successfully in a team and lead others. These skills are learned from overcoming incredibly personal challenges. Young people are often unable to learn these lessons from their parents, at school or in the office.

You’ll explore the wonders of the natural world. Each one of your senses will be awakened by incredible outdoor settings.
