So Much More Than Just Outdoor Fun
Adventure Therapy, Experiential Education and Outdoor Adventure Education represent theories of learning which create the basis for all Life Adventure Center's programs. Based on the work of Case Western Psychologists Drs. David Kolb and Ron Fry, our programs are carefully crafted to challenge the participant to physically, emotionally and intellectually engage in problem solving execises that "puts them outside of their comfort zone." Through professionally guided "debriefing" sessions, participants process the experience, gleaning important lessons that powerfully aid trauma recovery.
Simply put, Life Adventure Center changes lives through outdoor adventure. Utilizing and contributing to a rapidly emerging pedagogy known as "Adventure Therapy" and "Outdoor Behavioral Health," we uniquely combine evidenced-based theories of experiential education, group dynamics, psychology, meditation, neuro-plasticity, equine assisted learning/psychotherapy, challenge course and outdoor adventure to build resiliency, somatic self-regulation, communication, teambuilding and leadership skills. So much more than mere mere fun outdoors (but make no mistake, we have a TON of fun!)- our innovative outdoor adventures employ a guided “debriefing” process to achieve life-changing, break-thru transformations. Our programs help heal trauma for neglected/abused children, intimate partner abuse survivors, and veterans challenged by PTS(d).
