For those who spend time at 180° there will be transference of positive personal and social interactions from the adventurous activities undertaken. We hope that individuals will grow in confidence, become a more effective team member, have a greater understanding of, and appreciation for the environment and take away this experiential education to build upon in the future. Through an extensive range of experiences, we give each individual the opportunity to learn from the staff and external instructors to broaden their mind set, increase their skills and have a lot of fun in the process. We hope to capture and inspire student’s imagination and drive for adventure.
