SCHOOL – UNIVERSITY
“Must we always teach our children with books? Let them look at the mountains and the stars up above. Let them look at the beauty of the waters and the trees and flowers on earth. They will then begin to think, and to think is the beginning of a real education.” David Polis
Are you a Programme Coordinator for IYA, RS, UWC or IB? You are looking for new challenging journeys where the students of your school could find what they are made of, discover new skills and have fun. Then it is time to join our programmes.
Pathfinder Challenge proposes Outdoor Education programmes that match those requirements. All our programmes contain ab initio and modular trainings such as orienteering, rope course, food management, wildlife awareness, security briefings, No Trace Behind, etc…
All levels imply that students will be put into situations where they will have to make decisions on their own, work as a team, to manage their own food and water, to carry their own equipment, to work as a team, to find or rediscover personal resources to overcome all challenges they will encounter in order to get through.
Our goal is to allows students to mature and to enrich their learning and personal understanding of the world around us: culturally, spiritually, socially and historically.
The overall aim is to provide young people with a life changing experience. Allowing them to grow healthily and soundly. That is the reason why our programmes take place outdoor. Sport activities in touch with nature are reveallling. You cannot cheat Nature… That is the reason why we value Outdoor Education.
