The Mount Lofty Adventure Hub, located on the grounds of Woodhouse Activity Centre, is South Australia’s first and largest custom designed Adventure Based Learning (ABL) facility. As ABL and experiential program specialists, Venture were ideally situated to design and maintain an Adventure Hub that provides novel and engaging ways to improve team performance, wellbeing, communication and conflict resolution.
Since its initial creation the Adventure Hub has only expanded, able to cater for school excursions, youth groups, sports teams and is now open as a tourist attraction for the general public. Its roots are still there however, and an integral part of the Mount Lofty Adventure Hub is wound in its basis as a key location for Adventure Based Learning with Venture.
Adventure Based Learning is a form of experiential education, learning by doing, that challenges people’s homeostasis through a blend of perceived emotional and other type of risk. As such each element of the Adventure Hub was created with the ideal of producing combinations of emotional strengthening, physical outreach, team building and leadership dynamics, and ‘challenge through choice’.
