Program Introduction

This program is designed to give participants the rare opportunity to experience a real Tall Ship and
give an introduction to the skills required for tall ship operations.

Throughout the duration of the program the participants will be involved in various activities designed
to focus on different aspects of their personal skills and development to help them grow as individuals
and as a community.

Confidence building, communication, independence, trust, problem solving, compassion,
responsibility, team work and motivation are just some of the outcomes that will be achieved over
the course of the program.

The fundamental approach to achieving these outcomes is through “Experiential Learning”. It is a
process through which participants gain knowledge, acquire new skills and enhance their values from
reflecting on direct experiences.

Certain activities will involve elements of risk that will be monitored carefully by our highly trained
and experienced staff. Safety standards at the Wilderness Centre are of an international standard and
staff are put through an intensive 6 month training program with risk management, facilitation and 1st
aid being primary focuses.

Participants will be asked to climb at heights, be involved in water activities, camp out over night,
follow safety instructions, assist in general duties, present to their friends and many other diverse
activities that may push them out of their comfort zones.
