Youth Participating in A Frame Portable Adventure Element

About this event

Adventure Facilitation Foundations 2- Expanding Adventures and Group Management

Expanding your adventure programs. Ideal for school & afterschool educators, non-formal educators, youth groups, social services, police, counselors, and camp staff!

Participants in this workshop will use their foundations in adventure facilitation to explore creating specific social-emotional outcomes through activity; expanded emotional, environmental, and initiative safety; expand into understanding and exploring group dynamics; and group conflict management.

Participants will build their adventurous toolkit as we explore these expanding concepts:

  • Identifying & creating specific social-emotional development outcomes through adventure
  • Crafting framing statements and reflection questions aligned with outcomes
  • Balancing desired facilitation outcomes with the group’s right to explore and create their own experiences
  • Safely expanding the experiential toolkit to include more dynamic activities
  • Safety parameters for portable elements requiring spotting and spotting instruction
  • Creating program frameworks for consistently safe practices
  • Small group development
  • Group conflict: how to embrace it, how to avoid harmful conflict, and how to help the group navigate it.

Participants will be most successful if they have an understanding of core concepts such as de-inhibitizing groups, Stretch Zone Learning, full value commitments and Challenge of Choice, and activity framing and sequencing basics obtained through courses like our Adventure Facilitation Foundations 1 workshop.

Attendees will experience the activities as participants first and then build them into their own practice as facilitators for their community.
