Our focus is the development of experiential leadership and high-quality teamwork. We firmly believe that leadership needs to be developed in a hands-on approach underpinned by sound theory.
During camps we divide the group into teams that participate in various activities like:
Teamwork & support using our Obstacle Challenges
Adventure based rock climbing, abseiling, canoeing and shooting
Communication activities and workshops
Arts & Crafts
Turbo Challenge – a multi tasking co-operative strategy game that tests negotiation , teamwork and collaboration.
Team tasks that require creativity, initiative, endurance and teamwork : Barrel Balance, Golf Ball Drop , Tangram, Linegram, Spiders Web, Island Escape, Gold Shift, Punctures Drum and many more
- Operation Tear drop – A map orientation and practical leadership exercise that is assessed by our facilitators that monitor the progress of groups as they traverse the mountains of Forest Glade.

We are experts in a new and exciting methodology – and we encourage groups to investigate an Appreciative Approach – using Appreciative Inquiry.
Appreciative Inquiry is a way of being and interacting. It is a process for facilitating positive change in human systems. AI begins by identifying this positive core and connecting to it in ways the heighten energy and inspire action for change.
As AI consultant Bernard J. Mohr says, “Problems get replaced with innovation as conversations increasingly shift toward uncovering the institution’s positive core.”
Tony Clarke has been to the previous two World Appreciative Inquiry Conferences, UJ in 2015 and recently in Nice, France 2019. We are learning more and more that positivity is a powerful tool for reshaping organizations & implementing change that is sustainable!
