We offer experiential education programs that develop leadership, increase self-confidence, and enhance communication through trust and team-building activities. Participants work together to identify and achieve common goals and in the process, gain new skills in problem-solving, resolving conflict, listening, observing, and working effectively in a group.
Experiential education is a model where one learns by doing, by actively engaging in experiences and then reflecting on learning moments that occur during that process.
According to the Association of Experiential Education:
Pathfinder’s facilitators set us apart from the rest. They bring diverse backgrounds, engaging teaching, and passion to each and every program. Their insightful assessment of your group’s needs and careful sequencing of activities leads to deep discussions allowing participants to transfer learning to everyday life. Laughs, smiles, and encouragement just add to the experience.
Our facilitators are extensively trained in the prevention and management of risk. Staff hold current certifications in First Aid, CPR/AED, low/high challenge course facilitation, tree climbing, canoeing and lifeguarding. This level of preparedness and staff’s constant vigilance has resulted in an excellent safety record.
Pathfinder focuses on all aspects of our participants’ safety including emotional safety. We ensure the learning environment is one where everyone can communicate openly, trust fellow participants, and fail forward. Pathfinder is a place for people to speak up, test out leadership skills, hear and acknowledge new voices, and grow as a person so you can contribute to your community in a meaningful way.
Because we work with you to design a program that meets your goals and needs, fees will depend on the length of program, location, number of participants, and classes selected. Prices range from as little as $35 per participant for a half day program to $475 per participant for a four-day/overnight program (including meals and lodging).Please contact us for additional information.
