To develop Capable, Caring, and Contributing citizens through research-based, guided adventure and experiential learning models. We accomplish our mission by building Life Skills, using the natural environment and adventure-based activities within a Full Value community.
There are many different kinds of adventure- based experiential education programs. Although on the surface there are similarities between activities, there is a wide spectrum of purposes and philosophies in the adventure-based experiential education field. Programs can range from recreational activities on one end of the spectrum, to therapy driven activities at the other. The 4-H Adventure Education programs fall approximately in the middle of the spectrum, focusing on education and life skills development. We help participants develop or enhance personal and interpersonal skills through meaningful and fun experiences.
