Action Challenge is a fully serviced and catered training facility offering courses specifically tailored to your schools requirements. Junior-Secondary identity and leadership training are among the centres specialties, with Noel and the team delivering complete guided discovery learning experiences for students from year 4 to 12. School Camps accommodate, from 15 to 90 students over a 1-5 day period.
“Our team concentrated on leadership issues, teambuilding, problem solving and confidence building activities. All activities were carefully structured, safe, challenging, and above all – great fun!
“Our Action Challenge School Leadership Program has proved to be a popular component of many Schools’ curriculums. Permanent reservations are now occurring with many Schools as this Program has proved to be a vital element of all students’ education.
This Program is a life skills Program which introduces participants to responsible behaviour not only for themselves, but for each other, whilst on camp. The skills learnt by the students are then carried back into the School, where issues such as bullying are reduced.
With a permanent reservation annually, your School can take advantage of possessing the ability to ‘change the culture’ within the entire School. This Life Skills program that we conduct is a very effective learning process.
Our classroom is the wilderness; the tools we use to work with are specially designed ropes courses and problem solving activities. These activities, which are fully framed with pre and post discussions and debrief sessions, bring about changes in the thought processes, how students treat other people and learn to have a greater amount of respect for themselves.
This program is a wonderful experience for students to develop their leadership skills, build their self-esteem, and receive a whole new focus on life.”
