Education & Academic

Outdoor education, training and recreation promote active learning through direct personal experience and offer excitement, fun and adventure within a framework of safety.
Outdoor education, training and recreation involve both young people and adults in a wide range of experiences, including adventurous activities on land and water and activities with an environmental focus.
Methods used include skills-focused learning, problem solving, team building and self-reliant journeys and activities, with residential experience an especially valued feature.
Challenging experiences outdoors impacts powerfully upon a young person's intellectual, physical, spiritual, social and moral development.
Use of the outdoors makes a major contribution to physical and environmental education and enhances many other curriculum areas. It contributes to personal growth and social awareness and develops skills for life and the world of work. Qualities such as a sense of responsibility and a purpose in life are nurtured. There is also a great deal of intrinsic enjoyment and satisfaction to be experienced from participation in outdoor activities.
Adrift has a long tradition in the field of outdoor education, training and recreation, reflecting the strong place of exploration and adventure on the Nile river and in the surrounding areas.

Join us with your schools, or universities to help build a stronger platform for your students to:

- Building self-confidence and self-esteem is fundamental to any young person's development.
- A positive attitude to learning is essential if young people are to make the most of their education.
- Awareness of the needs and contributions of others and the ability to sustain effective relationships, at work and in the family, are vital in today's society.
- The purposeful use of leisure time is increasingly seen as making an important contribution to a fulfilling lifestyle.
- Our relationship with the environment is a key issue facing tomorrow's citizens.
- Tomorrow's successful citizens will possess the adaptability to cope with a rapidly changing world of work and the responsibility to be an effective member of a community.

Challenging outdoor experiences promote the development of communication, problem solving and decision-making skills which have currency across a range of occupations. They encourage a positive "opting in" and "can do" attitude. Young people's horizons are broadened, new challenges come to be relished rather than shunned, and perseverance and determination are reinforced. Values and attitudes developed in a context of shared endeavour help to form a sound basis for responsible citizenship.
