Each letter of the alphabet has a value. When the letter is called out by the facilitator the word used MUST BEGIN with the letter without exception.

Select a theme, the alphabet game works best with a theme, so that everyone's attention is focused on words that come from a particular idea. Some great themes include: Shopping, Animals and food, countries, household items, kitchen items, or let the group decides on the theme!

Shelter Building Wilderness Adventu8re Camp

CAMP SKABA- Two man shelters

If you are out in the wilderness, you don’t need a tent to create a comfortable shelter. You can take advantage of materials issued by your facilitators to build a comfortable place to spend the night or stay dry in the rain. Your shelter will adjust based on how many people you are camping with, where you are, and if you have any other materials with you. Luckily, there are several different ways you can create covering for yourself.

Teams will be issued with a piece of rope, covering and a few droppers.

Team building for learners

The Spider's Web is a fun game that teaches learners teamwork and cooperative skills.

Learners have to lift each member of their team through the web.

Once the opening in the web was used that opening is closed for the  remaining duration of the game.

Communication, planning and body strength play a huge role in this fun  activity.

Giant Jenga is a fun game that teaches learners self control, decision making and cooperative skills.

So, Jenga is a game of skill and strategy. In the game, you build a tower, move the pieces and hope that you aren't the one who makes it fall.

Jenga is played with 54 wooden blocks. Each block is three times as long as its width, and one fifth as thick as its length.

Jenga is a good recreational game and good fun, especially in a group!     

@ L’Abri Adventure Wilderness School we take learners out of their comfort zone and present to them problems and challenges to solve
in a creative way. We encourage reasoning that is not immediately obvious and involving ideas that may not be obtainable by using only
traditional step-by-step logic.
