Optional Outdoor Learning Experience
Our optional modules around the Outdoor Learning Experience are scheduled throughout? the duration of the program; however, it currently depends on the situation of the pandemic.
Outdoors and wilderness have proven to be an effective classroom for learning leadership, appreciating what you have, developing self-reflection skills, building confidence and getting to know yourself.
Skills like first aid, terrain knowledge, patience, maintaining composure in tough situations, decision making, improvising on plans as you go, and symbiotic relationship with nature are essential for a physically active adult life. However, these are not always taught in a regular school curriculum in an experiential setting. Through Ullens LEAP, we will be imparting these essential outdoor skills to the students. Our learning by doing experiential program helps students understand the cultural, conservation, sustainability and instill environmental values to create a better society.
While we value treks, travels and outdoors learning experiences, if the situation does not permit, we have alternative options that can be performed in the house that will mirror the learning of outdoors as much as possible.
