ACHIEVE has partnered with Mohawk College Continuing Education to design and deliver ACHIEVE: Therapeutic Adventure – HLTH-10213
This training is designed to introduce participants to the interdisciplinary field of Therapeutic Adventure Programming for At-Risk Youth. Participants will be immersed in an experiential learning environment in a residential setting (Wendigo Lake Expeditions, near South River, ON) where they will be introduced to aspects relevant to the field of experiential education and therapeutic adventure programming. The course will be delivered in a compressed format continuously over a 3-day experience. Through praxis, content will be examined from both a theoretical and a practical perspective. Classroom sessions will provide theoretical foundations, and hands-on educational experiences will solidify the learning.
Upcoming Course Dates:
May 10-12, 2019
August 23-25, 2019
Students will experience learning outside of the traditional classroom, exploring a variety of individual and group-based learning outcomes. Additionally, students will be challenged to face perceived limits and explore the complexities of working effectively in team situations as both a personal growth and an educational opportunity. To this end, students will have the opportunity to experience low and high ropes challenge courses and other adventure-based activities within a ‘challenge-by-choice’ setting.
Transportation to and from Wendigo Lake Expeditions campus outside of South River, ON is the responsibility of the student. Log in to ELearn at https://elearn.mohawkcollege.ca to connect with other students attending via email (see class list) or discussion post that has been set up for students to communicate with each other prior to and after your ACHIEVE experience.
