Journey based programs can be one or a combination of activities such as hiking, rock climbing and abseiling, canyoneering, river rafting, mountain biking, environmental education, or orienteering/rogaining.
Each student learns about their own strengths and weaknesses and how persistence in extending one’s often self-imposed limitations can bring success in the most challenging of situations – be they physical, emotional or social. This ability to bounce back from setbacks or challenges with confidence and optimism is a vital tool for any young person as they enter adulthood.
Chameleon Adventures programs are designed to help students recognise that risk can be dealt with responsibly and with thought, rather than heedlessly – a lesson that is highly applicable to any young person’s personal life. We apply guided reflection to determine how they might approach a similar situation again. Thus a vital element of the experience is the transfer of learning into everyday contexts.
