Experience based learning for school classes in South Tyrol
 

Enhancing cooperative and communicative skills, improving the sense of community and togetherness in the class, and strengthening trust through outdoor games and group activities.

A school class is an interesting social micro-world, which generations of teachers have tried to better. This does not always require a big effort; as sometimes less is more. We at KREAKTIV believe that nature is the best teacher, and that learning happens most efficiently and lasts only when it involves our hearts as well as our brains. We leave the often sterile atmosphere of classrooms with the aim of allowing your students to rediscover how to savour the experience of learning. So far our programme, seeking to involve learners both cognitively and emotionally, has never failed to obtain surprisingly good results within just a few hours. The main aims of the adventure experience education days we offer are the furthering of social skills, identity formation and consolidation, and the improvement of cooperation and communication processes within classes and/or groups of students. Teenagers will learn how to trust others, and how to have faith in themselves. Lasting learning experiences and successes through authentic learning outdoors will positively influence the learning and working atmosphere in the classroom.
Description:
In the great outdoors of the South Tyrolean mountains we allow your students to experience community and togetherness, to strengthen mutual trust, and to learn how to collaborate and cooperate through a series of experiential games and confidence-building activities.

Programmes

Nothing ignites enthusiasm and motivation more than play. It also awakens fantasy, and fantasy creates adventures. The amazing mountain world of South Tyrol is going to be our playground, and nature our best teacher. Our programme coaches will unobtrusively teach your students important values and social skills. 
All our programmes (team training, high rope course, mountain biking, climbing, geocoaching) are adaptable for different age groups and are offered all year round.

Team training on a high rope course

Team training on a high rope course

Whole day
Get rid of your dog-eat-dog philosophy and ready for togetherness. Our adventure programme aims at enhancing students' ability to work in a team, their helpfulness and mutual consideration. The high rope course invites students on an adventure, and the tasks which need to be accomplished require them to work together, communicate, and trust each other. Only teams as thick as thieves will be able to achieve their goal.

Bike, castle and rope

Bike, castle and rope

Whole day
We will reach the castle by bike, walk inside and into the tower, climb its stairs, and leave it on a climbing rope. This extraordinary triathlon is not only an adventurous sports challenge - it also allows your students to dive into the exciting history of the Dark Ages. The best part, however, is the rappelling manoeuvre down from the tower - dizzying but absolutely safe! The 40-metre abseiling manoeuvre from the castle keep happens under the watchful eyes of our guides and with the safest equipment available.

Geo-coaching and photo safari

Geo-coaching and photo safari

Half-day event
Going for a walk is not particularly difficult; we all know how to take a stroll. Finding one's way, locating things, and orientating oneself however poses some difficulties to most people. Well-equipped with GPS and maps, your students will start off into nature in small groups. Who will take on responsibility for what? Who will assert himself/herself and take over the group? Who will be able to do best, and which team will be able to cross the finish line first?

All participants will abseil from the castle keep - 40 metres own into a gaping void.

Aerial runway, building a zip line

Aerial runway, building a zip line

Half-day event
There is not always a bridge when we need to get to the other side. So we build one to cross a gorge. Or we build an aerial runway. For this project, creativity, resourcefulness and, most of all, teamwork are required. Without these skills, succeeding is impossible. In the end, there will be only one question left: Who's going first?
