Defining Adventure Education

- Growing up, I knew adventure education to be about practical skills and recreation. It was a way of keeping youth active and engaged. More recently, however, I’ve come to learn more about the history and philosophies of adventure education and so my idea of the concept has changed dramatically as I have also lived and learned much since the days of my youth.

- I woke with a start in my tiny, dark dorm room. There was a persistent tapping coming from my window. I leaped out of bed and waved my wand groggily.
