Why Have Adventures? by JW Patrick
“Every young person should have an opportunity to experience the Outdoors”.
Sam Sykes is an outdoor pursuits instructor who believes that the challenge and adventure of outdoor education can benefit young people for the rest of their lives. That learning practical new skills such as rock climbing, camping, map reading and kayaking are not just great fun but they also help young people grow more confident in their own abilities.
Why Have Adventures vividly illustrates how outdoor pursuits can help develop positive life skills and traits including:
Risk Assessment, Self-Reliance, Team Work, Perseverance, Learning from your Mistakes, Communication and Leadership.
