Do I have relationship abilities and useful “soft skills” in order to create pleasant situations and make people comfortable? Do I have the abilities to create the opportunity to explore and know more about the area and its culture?
ACTIVITY: With the outdoor teambuilding experience students can test their relationship abilities. They can choose BETWEEN THE THREE CAMPS (BASE CAMP, CAMP 1 and CAMP 2) to understand how to make decisions,how to negotiate and how to work in a team in order to achieve a common goal.
