Medeba

 

Outdoor Education

  • Facilitated for maximum learning

  • Customized programming

  • Unique adventure activities

  • Near wilderness setting

 

With approximately 200 acres of property in a near wilderness setting, Medeba has first-rate facilities and extensive adventure-based activities that are designed to build community, trust, cooperation, and teamwork. Using adventure and community as teaching tools is our passion and we want to facilitate an experience that goes above your expectations. 

 

Adventure Learning

The first goal of our school programs is to help students develop patterns of behaviour that enable them to be effective community members and well balanced individuals. Adventure Learning allows change in students' lives to occur naturally.

 

Community

The second goal of our school programs is to model and demonstrate the benefit of being in an effective community, to stimulate learning and growth. We believe that healthy communities, once developed, will promote individual wellbeing.

 

Outdoor Recreational Activities

Finally, we want our school programs to 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.

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.
