Journey with us.
We all know that the best gift anyone can give is to believe in who we are. As fellow outdoor and “life” adventurers, we understand the transformative power of experiential learning in wilderness spaces – conquering obstacles that appear too hard, too immense, too overwhelming for mere humans such as ourselves.
At Adventure Specialties, we believe that every person has untapped potential waiting to be discovered. We’re interested in investing in people’s lives so they can leave these spaces feeling empowered — with new courage to take control of their lives and relationships. We know they’ve got it in them. We develop “life” adventurers with courageous hearts.
Through our fast and furious teenage years, our music idols, tennis champions and international olympians came and went — but the people who walked alongside us in the dark, mundane, or exhilarating times in our lives, our mentors, those who believed in us or showed us a better way, we will always remember those.
These ‘everyday heroes’ were the ones who stepped off their pedestals (real or imagined), offered their time, their courage and their knowledge — they took the time to know us and see us, who looked us in the eye and left their mark indelibly on our journey.
Adventure Specialties prides itself on the relational, ‘down to earth’ approach that we take with each of our participants to meet each individuals where they’re at, to understand the combination of these needs in a group setting and then to tailor a program that will unearth and maximise each the individual and collective potential.
The goal? So that every individual expands their horizons, conquer their fears, develops in confidence and becomes their unique version of an ‘everyday hero’.
