Safety

What we do has a risk of harm – this is an inherent part of adventure and the learning that makes doing it worthwhile and fun.

Teaching participants how to manage this is just as much a part of our job as the teaching the outdoor skills themselves. Our job is to manage, but not eliminate this risk, as this is what gives us the benefit of outdoor eduction. Often what the participant sees is ‘perceived risk’ but not real risk.
