Social and Emotional Learning through: “Edventure”

When students are involved in adventurous activities, they are fully engaged. As a result, they develop social-emotional skills in self awareness, common group norms, effective communication, teamwork, collaborative decision making, problem solving, and more! Single activity days at our site provide your students with high-impact experiences that can literally transform the classroom. To increase and deepen these educational outcomes, The Browne Center has developed Edventure, a developmentally sequenced year-long or modular program that integrates the benefits of adventure learning into your classroom.

Through Edventure, students will develop:

  • Awareness of personal assets and strengths and how they contribute to group success
  • Appropriate expression of feelings, reactions, and ideas
  • Awareness of how their actions affect others
  • Positive attitudes toward themselves and others
  • Mastery of a structured model for decision-making and problem solving
  • Understanding of healthy ways of dealing with conflict and stress
  • A sense of community as they move toward a common goal as part of diverse teams

"We switched from another outdoor education program to the UNH Browne Center, and it was the best move we could have made for our students and staff. Instead of a week-long ecology program, we now have a year-long program that teaches life skills in all subject areas. The Browne Center staff has custom fit the program to meet our needs and we couldn't be happier." - Principal, NH Middle School
