Students step into leadership roles and practice group management, organization and decision making. As students gain skill and responsibility, they discover their personal strengths – both as individuals and as members of an expedition team. Additionally, students are actively involved in developing lesson plans and teaching their peers a variety of topics, from desert navigation and setting rock anchors to running therapeutic group discussions and team building initiatives. Expedition Therapy gives students the tools to succeed in all aspects of life.
