basic concept utilized is experiential learning or learning through
experience. Participants take part in various activities which
initiate and enhance skills such as leadership, teamwork, and
communication. These activities are facilitated by Instructors who
ensure activities are adapted to fit the participants' capabilities to
maximize learning. As the experiences are more vivid than normal
classroom lectures, participants have a higher retention and transfer
of the lessons learnt to working and personal life. This is a key
strength of all activities.
A wide variety of team dynamics activities are
designed to encourage initiative, team work, planning, communication
and leadership. Each activity involves varying degrees of both
group and personal challenges.
Participants are divided into smaller groups, each consisting of a
maximum of 3 persons. They will then be given a map of the venue

expedition. Participants will be given equipment such as
"parang", tent sheet (tarpauline), karrimat, waterbottle,
cooking pot, rucksack to name a few. They have to share the
duties of making the shelter, cooking, collecting firewood and
a good campsite is an essential part of the exercise here.
Participants are not allowed to erect any campsite in a farm,
near a river, on a hill slope and of course on a tree. A few
aspects that should be looked into are such matters as the area,

There are 3 types of Solo,
At certain times, participants will need some period of time to
think about themselves and their commitment to the group and
their level of understanding of each member in the group. The
solo is introduced to give them time to think about this.
Mini Solo or Time Out
Typically not planned and can happen
anytime when the group needs a mental / physical break. It can
be as short as few minutes only. It provides a chance of short
period of time for participants to stop and think (to reflect)
about their actions and attitude toward the program.
Short or Long Solo
This is an overnight solo or even longer.
The added challenge of spending a night or nights camping alone
adds many new dimensions to the solo experience. They are
faced with being alone, having to build their own shelter and
to cope with fears. A task will be given to them while
performing this activity. Namely:
- write a letter to themselves which will be mailed to
them in 3 months time
- list out the area of improvement and one noticeable
strength for each group member
- make gifts for each other
- asked not to talk while being picked up from solo until
they have reached base camp.
After Solo, we will give a chance to the participants to talk
- what they think and feel about the experience,
- what is the purpose,
- are there any benefit,
- general feedback.
ROPE CONFIDENCE COURSE
has a series of rope and wooden bridges, platforms, nets and
ladders designed to provide various levels of difficulties from

ROCK CLIMBING and ABSEILING (RAPELLING)
There are mainly two areas of
operations for this activity. The artificial rock wall which is perfect for beginners.
purpose of the rock wall is to provide a safe, educational and
fun venue for climbing and abseiling (rappelling).
Participants have to climb the rock wall safely using ropes,
harnesses, belay device (ATC), Karabiners for protection.
Descending (abseiling) from the top of the wall needs courage
and a sense of adventure. Individuals have to control their own
rate of descent using the device (figure of eight) and suspended
by a safety line controlled by the instructor.
- increase self-confidence
- generate trust
- decision making involving risk and courage
- break down previously held physical and mental limitations
- to help group understand the importance of mutual support
to an individual in overcoming problems and reaching goals.
For abseiling, we are using the rock wall
and the high ropes circuit. On the rock wall, usually an
exercise called Self-Programmed Abseil is often used with
management courses and presented as a project to be managed with
little help from Instructors except for technical and safety
- careful interpretation of written instruction to
successfully complete a task
- management of multi-faceted project involving perceived
- co-operation / team building
- confidence in oneself and others
- determination to succeed
- communication skills
- and of course... to have fun

Instead of a rubber
boat, we used inner tube or inner and bamboo
lashed together to form a raft that will be used on t river,
lagoon or lake..
This practice is very beneficial for the participants as they
will work together to build a strong and practicable raft for
their own group. Everyone will be involved in this process which
at the same time, will enhance the level of teamwork,
brainstorming, decision making and leadership, to name a few.
Rafting is a good chance indeed for
individuals to practice skills in sometimes stressful
situations. It will also activate the initiatives of the group
in deciding which way to go while tackling a rapids.
Raft Building Exercise
exercise is done on the rive or lake site. Group will be given certain amount of time
to discuss, plan and finally build their raft. The
objective is to build a raft by using the inner tubes and bamboo
or blue plastic barrels and wooden spars, that can accommodate
all the members in the group and to cross the river safely.
