Looking for the ability to set challenges for others? Participants at an upcoming Adventures in Low Elements Workshop facilitated by Project Adventure and scheduled for April 15-17, 2016 at the Charlie Elliott Wildlife Center, will focus exclusively on adventure programming. Registration required by April 1, 2016. 

“The course located at Charlie Elliott provides a great place to introduce participants to low challenge course facilitation, which can be implemented as part of an effective and fun adventure program," said Keri Hinchion of Project Adventure.   

The Adventures in Low Elements workshop focuses exclusively on adventure programming using ground activities and low challenge course elements. Topics include the facilitation of warm up games, problem-solving initiatives and trust activities.  Participants will experience sequencing, framing and debriefing techniques, and learn safety guidelines as well as creative variations for low element facilitation.  The workshop will be held on the challenge course constructed by Project Adventure in 2012 at Charlie Elliot Wildlife Center.
