    Half Day Low Course

    (4 Hours)

     

    The Low Course begins with a discussion of group goals and expectations. Then, a series of group games designed to have participants become better acquainted, and prepare them for a fun, positive experience. Next, the group engages in a series of low course elements that increase in difficulty, and usually present challenges that can only be completed through cooperative interaction. Throughout the entire process, the group is allowed to share feedback and communicate openly in an environment of physical and emotional safety. A wrap-up of the day ties the experience together, and facilitates the transfer of the shared experiences back to the participants' everyday lives.

    -Minimum age: 7
