Throughout our site, you will see references to mountaineering and the outdoors in pictures, and text. Mountaineering is the primary theme in our metaphors along with the outdoors in general. Mountaineering and the outdoors (back-country) allows us to utilize experiential education and learning in ways that typical team building activities sometimes cannot.
In our back-country activities, nature is the stage for us to create a situation that elicits learning, feedback, and change. We use both metaphor and the direct experience of the lesson as we do in our less active events, but the more active and adventuresome activities often provide an added degree of individual learning.
