We are delighted that you are considering a Outdoor Adventures by Boojum program. Key reasons why Boojum Experience is so special.
- The Institute is nationally accredited by the Association of Experiential Education (AEE). Our programs are thoroughly and rigorously audited by external peer reviewers for program quality and safety. We are one of only fourteen wilderness/adventure programs in the nation to earn this distinction.
- All of the Institute’s programs are custom designed to meet your educational outcomes. Our staff of professional educators, will work with you hand-in-hand to craft a powerful educational experience for your students.
- We are not bound by the borders of a camp or facility. We operate in dozens of carefully selected locations throughout California, Arizona and Nevada. If traveling is a constraint, we can come to you and deliver our traveling educational programs and mobile team initiatives at your facility or a local park.
You will find that the Boojum Experience is transformative – – one that students and staff will cherish for years to come. It would be our pleasure to have the opportunity to work with your group this year.
Custom Designed Youth Programs
Whether you choose residential dorms, tent camping at a base camp or an expedition style adventure, we can design a program that fits your group’s needs. If traveling is a constraint, we can design a program that utilizes nearby green space such as a court-yard, ball field or nearby park. Nature can be explored anywhere.
Leadership and Team Programs
Boojum can 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.
Challenge Course Facility
Climbing high into the trees, belaying one another with ropes, shouting encouragement to one another as they fly down a zip line or helping each other across a high traverse initiative, all are part of a high ropes challenge experience that The Outdoor Adventures by Boojum can design for your group.
Our challenge course is located at the Idyllwild Pines Camp in the beautiful San Jacinto Mountains in Idyllwild – close to all of Southern California – and consists of a comprehensive set of ground initiative and both low and high “elements”. The low elements provide a level of challenge that is close to the ground and are generally protected by spotting provided by the group. High elements involve initiatives that are 30-45 feet off the ground on cables and ropes. Belay systems that include the use of ropes, body harnesses and friction devices are used to control movement and protect participants during these initiatives.
