Grace Adventures Reach School Program 

Reach Reach is an adventure-based leadership program designed to equip today’s youth and adults to be tomorrow’s leaders.
 Adventure-based leadership programs are personal growth opportunities that challenge participants to maximize their strengths and identify areas for growth while accomplishing both the group’s and the individual's goals.  We use an experiential model of instruction.  Participants learn to set goals and work through them.  Some of the areas of focus are as follows:
 
Leadership development
Character education
Cooperation
Unity
Communication
Goal setting
Perseverance
Effort
Respect
Courage
Encouragement
Resourcefulness
Social issues, such as bullying or truancy
Alternative education
Health awareness

 

 

 
Our experiential philosophy: “What, So What, Now What”
  • What: experiencing the activity
  • So What: taking what was learned from the activity and develop insights
  • Now What: understanding what was learned in the activity and applying it to everyday life situations

Furthermore, we use a progression of activities to build on this philosophy.  Groups start doing ice breakers and cooperative activities, move into more intensive activities, called initiatives, and finish the sequence with a high adventure activity. 

Our Reach program is designed around your schools size and age.  We offer programs for third graders through college and adult groups. With a variety of activities and high adventure courses. Come for a day or come for a week!
