What We Do
We Are Adventurers provides outdoor events to help you develop your organisation, teams and people – whether you’re in the private, public or voluntary sector.
With the right level of challenge and support from our highly experienced activity supervisors and facilitators, attendees can break the patterns of thought and action than hold them back from true excellence – achieving things they never thought themselves capable of.
Outdoor development creates enjoyable, memorable and confidence-building experiences that are quite unlike run-of-the-mill “training”. It’s a fun, inclusive and, above all, effective way to develop your people and your organisation.
What’s more, outdoor development reflects the complexity and challenge of the modern business environment in a way that classroom-based training cannot, presenting real problems with real consequences that require real solutions – and learning that has real relevance back at the workplace.
Programme Design and Consultancy
At WAA we don’t believe in “off the shelf” packages; we’ll design a unique event or programme to fit your organisation’s specific objectives. Our events can support development in areas such as:
- People management
- Team building and development
- Planning and organising tasks and projects
- Inclusion and diversity
- Attitude to risk
- Creativity and innovation
- Problem solving and decision making
We’ll meet you to establish your needs, agree objectives and an outline design before going further. We’ll then maintain our consultation along the way, ensuring that you get the programme and outcomes you need, including agreeing evaluation and follow-up.
We can provide a wide range of activities to support an equally wide range of needs. These can be combined in a variety of ways to produce events and programmes of different durations, levels of challenge and complexity.
Example activities include:
- Low-level and high-level rope work
- Canoeing and kayaking
- Bushcraft/ Survival
- Treasure hunts
- Stand-alone and scenario-based problem solving
- Wilderness/survival challenges
- Indoor-based exercises
Venues and Locations
Unlike most outdoor development organisations, WAA isn’t tied to a single location. We’ll come to you! As part of our initial consultation we’ll discuss your venue and location needs, then scout out suitable locations to meet those requirements. This means that you can make considerable savings on travel and subsistence, making WAA programmes more cost-effective.
