Outdoor Education

The Value of Outdoor Education

Outdoor education motivates participants to deal with challenging and demanding situations that require effort, determination, co-operation, and self-reliance. It is considered as a holistic form of education that can guide individuals academically, physically, emotionally, socially, and psychologically. It also provides opportunities to apply knowledge in real-life situations and helps in enhancing the relationship between humans and nature.

These types of outdoor education programmes challenge and complement the current context of our traditional education system. It provides balance to a system that is highly focused on testing and examinations by allowing participants to acknowledge and understand the inherent subjectivity that colours many real-life situations. It aims to provide and promote the development of a person as a social being in a balanced, integrated fashion as well as provide a rewarding energy outlet.

All of our programmes have deeply adopted the above fundamentals. They are professionally facilitated in a way that highlights those values.

At Hoodoo Adventures, we are passionate about introducing youth to the outdoors and the benefits that playing outside can offer. Hence, we have put together a selection of adventure activities and camps suitable for all ages that the community and its visitors can choose from.

Active Community Youth Programs

Our goal is to help you explore the outdoors and instil a passion for kids to connect with the planet.

At Hoodoo Adventures we teach and follow simple yet invaluable rules.  Respect for self.  Respect for others.  Respect for the environment.
