As the school year draws to a close in the coming weeks, we thought it a good time to reflect on the sentiment Bear shared in an article he wrote for The Guardian.
"It is through adventure in our wild spaces that people, especially children, really learn and grow. When I think about the outdoors, I don’t just see woodlands, rivers and mountains; I see the world’s biggest classroom. Taking part in an outdoor expedition frees the mind and liberates the spirit. It also reminds us of what we’re truly capable of achieving. That is why I believe that every child has the right to adventure."
Bear and the team designed our 24 hour Wilderness Survival Family Adventure, (and the UK 24Hr Family Adventure Courses) in such a way that young adventurers are taught to trust their own instincts and to balance risk and safety; but equally, the courses are structured to allow for a unique bonding experience between the parent(s)/guardian(s) and their child(ren) - away from distractions of every day life and devices! Encouraged to work in teams, children leave our course having learnt to work well with others but also to trust their own instincts with increased self-confidence.
Our US course season launches next week -book your place now for an experience you and your family will never forget!
