What is Adventure Based Learning?2021-02-16T06:35:58+00:00

Adventure Based Learning (ABL) is a particular form of experiential education, learning by doing, that challenges people’s homeostasis through a blend of perceived emotional and other types of risk.

“Through novel and challenging group experiences, positive individual change can happen” – Rod Quintrell.

I’m not sure about the ‘Adventure’ side of this. It looks like it might be hard.2021-02-16T06:36:22+00:00

There is one key phrase that we believe here at Venture. “Adventure is a state of mind”. For some people ‘adventure’ is doing challenging outdoor activities like our High Ropes Challenge Course. For others ‘adventure’ is leaving the safety of their comfort zones and interacting with new people.

As such Venture training programs are tailored to meet the specific needs of your organisation. They are designed to be challenging but achievable for all ages. Our programs have a strong focus on safety, trust, support and most importantly ‘challenge by choice’. This means that the level of challenge is chosen by the participant, not forced upon them.

Do you still run programs for schools?2020-11-10T04:05:56+00:00

Absolutely! Our Venture Youth programs now come under the Venture Associations page.

Are your staff qualified?2020-11-10T04:06:02+00:00

We seek out well grounded people with good leadership and facilitation instincts. We actively train and develop our staff to deliver high quality experiences.
