Your Adventure at Medeba

Our desire is for students to learn as much as possible during their outdoor education retreat. They may learn hard skills about climbing, soft skills regarding working as a team, or they might learn something new about themselves. There are a number of ways we do this, starting right from booking to the facilitation methods we use.

Learn through Adventure!

Your students will be split into in small groups (up to 15)  and our trained facilitators will challenge them with various activities to bring about new realization and learning about themselves and the group. 

Community Growth

We believe that a facilitated community based on inclusion and shared values is an ideal platform for challenge and growth. From this small community individuals are encouraged and supported in their learning and development.

Our school programs will introduce young people to unique recreational activities that they could adopt as part of a healthy lifestyle. They are exciting, non competitive and environmentally sensitive.
