Experiential Education and Adventure Camp
Every child is full of great ideas and dreams. At Famous Adventures, we nurture this spirit by enriching the lives of our campers with meaningful activities.
We do this through experiential learning. It is no secret that we go on a lot of fun adventures here at camp. We believe that nature facilitates introspection and positive development.
From surfing to rock climbing, kids get an opportunity to step outside their comfort zone and brave the unknown. In these moments, children begin to figure out how strong and smart they truly are, and that they are capable of accomplishing their dreams.
Life moves fast, so here at camp we discover that the real magic happens from taking the time to process these powerful experiences.
By taking the time to reflect, discuss, analyze, and evaluate the experience, a child begins to create an understanding of the world.
Reinforcing beliefs that our children are capable, strong, and powerful is a key factor in psychological development. Helping to combat the inevitable challenges they will face as they continue their journey into adulthood.
It helps to create a sense of vision toward their own personal goals, aims, and ambitions.
These moments also provide an opportunity to adjust expectations and gain new perceptions about life.
Academic Research verifies experiential learning occurs when carefully chosen experiences are supported by reflection, critical analysis, and synthesis.
We do this here in the Lowcountry. We go on incredible adventures, and then at the end of the day, we take a moment to talk about the activities and how we felt about them.
It is important to teach children that they are capable of reaching even their highest goals. Having emotions is normal, but we don't have to let them rule us.
Learning how to trust our own ability to think and act in a way that is in line with our values is a result of experiential education.
