Outdoor Education, Wilderness Retreats & Canadian Culture
At Great Moose Adventures we understand that true learning can only be obtained when the emotional and physical needs are being met, by feeling safe and content. Once these basic needs are met, the mind is able to open and grow. With the growth of the mind, comes the desire to learn more, which is the foundation for spirit and from there....the sky is the limit!
We also believe that positive, personal growth can only be achieved by doing.
education, experiential/hands-on learning, inquiry based play, physical activity and a healthy diet rooted in moderation, we focus on making connections, building relationships, goal setting, communication, reflecting and most importantly, having fun.
Learning through adventure!
With all this in mind, at Great Moose Adventures we shape our outdoor education with the CLIMB program, created by our team in September of 2011.
