Our Philosophy:

Using appropriate, adventure-based activities as a means to human growth and development has become an increasingly useful methodology in human service fields. Participants are encouraged to participate in adventure-based learning experiences, potentially leading to group and personal growth. Opportunities for reflective processing throughout the experiences are offered to provide insightful learning that can be applied to everyday life far beyond the activities themselves. Reasonably safe programming consistent with currently accepted practices is provided in an effort to promote positive growth experiences for all who are served. An approach known as Challenge By Choice is upheld whereby participants choose to what extent and to what capacity they will participate in the activities offered.

Mission Statement of the MSU Adventure Education Program:

To promote personal growth and healthy relationships in our community through adventure-based experiences. Adventure and challenge are part of your life.
