In addition to the challenge course structure on the Jackson Campus of Teton Science Schools, the Doug Walker Challenge Course will have far reaching impacts. The curriculum and plans from partnering organization, Project Adventure, will include outreach challenge ‘packs’ (or mobile teaching kits) and components that will be used at our Kelly Campus, Teton Valley Community School Campus in Victor, ID, and within the community for onsite trainings and team building with students of all ages.
TSS trained staff will additionally take these teaching packs/kits throughout Wyoming and eastern Idaho to work with school groups we currently work with on outreach on a regular basis. Schools like the Pocatello Community Charter School, Fort Casper Academy and Saratoga Middle School will benefit from the power of Doug Walker’s vision for personal growth and cooperative skills as a component of their educational experience.
These kits include “classic and unique props and equipment for presenting over 70 cooperative games and more than a dozen of PA’s most popular group problem-solving activities. Suitable for a broad range of ages, abilities, and audiences this bag is an excellent resource for introducing adventure learning into any curriculum or program. Activities range from icebreakers to closure activities, from active to quiet games. Many games and props have infinite variations and, with a dose of creativity, can be used over and over in different ways.”
