Rare Earth Adventures is an amazing organization of leaders, facilitators and guides. Experiential Adventures has enjoyed a collaborative relationship with REA since 2010. This June, EA taught a wilderness first responder during their annual staff training. The course took place at their retreat located in Virginia. At Experiential Adventures LLC, we appreciate creativity in teaching and this group knows how to bring out the best in their clients. As a consequence, we had to make this course as challenging as possible to keep them on their toes.
Each member of REA worked through challenging medical simulations including a night simulation, water and near drowning incident, ATV accident, and the ever challenging anaphylaxis incident. Because many of the Rare Earth staff have been through multiple medical courses, Experiential Adventures made sure that each simulation included additional problems that were difficult for participants to predict.
Experiential Adventures teaches WFR’s under contract with the Wilderness Medicine Training Center. While the medical curriculum is challenging, REA and Experiential Adventures work well together because of our common belief that staff trainings need to include difficult collaborative opportunities. Staff culture improves and organizational responsibility increases during the team building challenges that occur when staff train together. EA and REA work together to create challenging environments for our clients, and that collaboration works best when training staff.
Whether you need a certification or you need more cohesive staff culture, Experiential Adventures works with you to provide custom outcomes using adventure as the medium. Here’s to challenging trainings, improved organizational outcomes, and a great group – thanks REA!
