Educo Adventure School’s Mission
Inspiring young people for life through transforming wilderness experiences. Young people are encouraged to invite challenge, express themselves, support each other, accept opportunities and participate in the adventures of life.

We seek opportunities to choose courage in adversity and we value the growth achieved by doing so. We believe taking calculated risks, being in nature and living as part of a group provides ample opportunity.

We are young at heart! We aim to find a new perspective. Through exploration, play and journeys we embrace the meaning of re-spect; we “take a second look” and discover!.

Human shares the same root as humility : humus or “of the Earth”. We explore what it means to be human and to be grounded. We appreciate our connection to the Earth, ourselves and others.

We train in honesty, appreciation and vulnerability. We value these skills of a community which provide the circle of support for the voices of people. To become whole and complete requires practice..

We can’t predict what new insights will emerge from a situation but we can be ready to embrace them- that’s the spirit of Educo! We trust that we have everything that we need with and within us and we allow each others defining character – or spirit – to shine through!
