Description of the tool

This book offers outdoor games and activities, as well as descriptions of natural or manmade obstacles, which offer a challenge. These are two areas of activities, which are necessarily involved in any outdoor education.

They help children develop their skills, raise their self-confidence, tolerance and their sense of fair play. They also support teamwork and communication. Young people are motivated to become parts of an informal education and become young educators. In addition, many of the games and activities may be played by disadvantaged groups. These games offer the same chance of success to people who are very often disadvantaged in many other games due of their weak physical fitness or lack of skills, or because they prefer certain other specific sports. That is why we can prove that overcoming a simple obstacle may be an effective way to raise children’s interest in sports and sports activities. “Project Adventure” is proof that such things happen. There are similar programs in many European countries – either in schools or outside organizations.

Book provides you with variety of non-formal education methods: getting to know each other games, team building, trust building, cooperation developing games and activities.
