The Boojum Experience
The Institute provides participants with exciting and challenging experiential educational programs that successfully complement and support curricular and team goals. A participant who has experienced a Boojum program returns to the classroom, family or workplace with a stronger feeling of self-confidence in his or her problem-solving capabilities. The Boojum Experience fosters a “can do” attitude providing individuals with opportunities for self-discovery, confidence building, and the improvement of interpersonal skills through trust and team-building activities. The Boojum Experience strengthens leadership, confidence, trust, listening and observation skills.
Leadership and Team Programs
Outdoor Adventures by Boojum will design a program to bring your group together and help foster leadership and group development. Instructors use games, puzzles and creative problem-solving activities to enhance group development, leadership and personal growth. Our programs assist in individual and group development, with a particular focus on commitment, involvement, leadership, self-confidence, support and ownership of actions – all of which are vital elements of an effective team. Regardless of academic major, students that have well developed leadership skills stand apart from applicants when entering into the workforce.
