Group Building Initiative

At Somerset Beach Campground, were dedicated to loving kids and helping them to reach their maximum potential. We believe that we can help you in your pursuit to do the same. Our Adventure Education program exists to enhance what teachers are already doing in the classroom.

We believe that maximum learning occurs when students are in a safe place that provides encouragement, structure and fun! Interwoven throughout our curriculum are the following emphases:

Trust

Our exercises allow students to learn not only how to trust one another, but also what it means to be trustworthy.

Communication

Through Adventure Education at SBC, students will improve their communication skills and find appropriate channels for communication.

Problem Solving

Students will have many opportunities to develop problem solving skills, both individually and as a group.

Team Building

Our activities promote unity among groups and allow students to learn how to effectively work with others. Students will develop genuine care and concern for his or her classmates.

Individually Tailored

All of our activities are chosen based on the age and maturity level of each group. With the help of educators, we will chose a variety of exercises tailored to meet your group’s needs. Here are a few samples of adventure education exercises that we often use with school groups:

Trust Fall

Group members build trust in one another by allowing group members to catch each other as they fall backwards from an elevated platform.

Balance Platform

Groups use and build problem solving skills, by setting goals and trying to keep a platform balanced.

Grand Canyon

Group members work together to try to get from one side of a “canyon” to the other using only two planks.

Walk of Life

Group members work their way around a suspended cable using a rope for balance. The Wall Group members must rely on one another to get over a ten foot scaling wall.

Hole in the Wall

Group members work to get all group members through the hole without letting them fall or touch the wall.

Our Staff

Each group of students will be led by one of our trained adult staff. Staff members care about your students and your purpose for bringing them and are dedicated to working with you to accomplish your goals for the day you spend at Somerset Beach.

Safety is Our Priority

In every exercise that we do, our priority is the safety of the students. Our promise to you is that we will make every effort to ensure both the physical and emotional safety of every student that participates in our programs. We will provide at least one trained adult leader for every group of 10 - 15 students and ask that at least one educator or parent comes for each group as well.
