The program planning process begins with extensive consultation and needs assessment as all of Boojum’s programs are custom-designed to meet the educational outcomes of our partners. We work with you hand-in-hand to craft a real-life learning experience that complements your educational needs. Our gifted instructors then deliver the program-specific curriculum for your human development, adventure and environmental education goals.
Boojum’s dynamic educational programs have powerful results. Through personal and group challenges, students learn about themselves, each other, and what it takes to work together. They develop an understanding of teamwork, and explore environmental issues. Participants develop critical thinking skills, communication skills, and self confidence.
Research shows that programs like Boojum that use the environment as an integrating context lead to:
- increased academic performance and test scores
- increased school graduation rates
- improved engagement in science and school work
- improved civility and citizenship behavior
In addition, participants learn valuable team-building and social skills, and develop confidence in themselves. Outdoor Adventures by Boojum provides a fun, dynamic learning environment where people learn—from nature, themselves, and each other—about the natural world and their own capabilities. Many participants say that their outdoor experience with Outdoor Adventures by Boojum was a highlight of their entire educational experience, and our programs offer both learning experiences and memories that last a lifetime.
