THE BASICS

 

In any package, on arrival  for any programs, the participants will be briefed on the entire program followed byice breaking activities. At the beginning and end of each activities there will be briefing and de-briefing. The list of activities below are not complete and will be added on from time to time

 
INTRODUCTION

 

The basic concept utilized is experiential learning or learning through experience. Participants take part in various activities which initiate and enhance skills such as leadership, teamwork, and communication. These activities are facilitated by Instructors who ensure activities are adapted to fit the participants' capabilities to maximize learning. As the experiences are more vivid than normal classroom lectures, participants have a higher retention and transfer of the lessons learnt to working and personal life. This is a key strength of all activities.

 
TEAM PROBLEMS SOLVING

A wide variety of team dynamics activities are designed to encourage initiative, team work, planning, communication and leadership. Each activity involves varying degrees of both group and personal challenges.

* Orienteering
Participants are divided into smaller groups, each consisting of a maximum of 3 persons. They will then be given a map of the venue ground. The idea is to look for as many markers as possible within a time limit.
Aims: To let participants do planning, teach co-operation among others, time management and self-reliance.

*  Ice Breaking

This is usually done when participants first arrive in a variety of short programs.
Aims: Generate group spirit, communication and increase group interaction and sharing of ideas.
 

*   Team Dynamics
Problems and scenarios are presented to the group as a challenge to be overcome. The wide variety of tasks all require creative thinking, leadership and close team work.
eg corporate games
Aims: Encourage planning and leadership while working towards a single goal bya creative and fully involved team. Generate discussion on improvements in the working of the group and allow a progressively better performance.
 
*   Raft Building
Plan, construct, launch and race a raft in the river along  rivers, lagoon  or lake.
Aims: Planning, creative thinking, team work and leadership are all inherent aspects of this activity that can be organised as a compeition between groups.
 

*6 to 18 feet Spider Net Wall
Group challenge to climb over a spider net wall. Safety ropes will be hooked on the participants.
Aims: Teamwork, confidence and creative thinking.

* Night Jungle Walk
A rope or line is  set-up in the jungle which is tied from one tree to another. The participants have to walk alone separated bya few minutes apart without a torchlight from the first point of the line to the end.
Aims: Increase communication level, teamwork, conquer fear and leadership.

 
CAMPING

It is done as part of any expedition. Participants will be given equipment such as "parang", tent sheet (tarpauline), karrimat, waterbottle, cooking pot, rucksack to name a few. They have to share the duties of making the shelter, cooking, collecting firewood and guard duty.

Selecting a good campsite is an essential part of the exercise here. Participants are not allowed to erect any campsite in a farm, near a river, on a hill slope and of course on a tree. A few aspects that should be looked into are such matters as the area, availability of water, threat from the strong wind and lightning, and fallen dead branches.

 

Aims:

  • to provide an opportunity to become more self-reliant, efficient and proficient in wilderness living.  

  • to stimulate group's interaction bysharing tasks

  • to present situations which test sparticipants initiative, humour, sense of responsibilty and willingness to perform routine work even when tired

  • to instill attitude that one can live with enjoyment and comfort in a natural environment without harming it.

Solo
At certain times, participants will need some period of time to think about themselves and their commitment to the group and their level of understanding of each member in the group. The solo is introduced to give them time to think about this.

There are 3 types of Solo, namely,

Mini Solo or Time Out  

    Typically not planned and can happen anytime when the group needs a mental / physical break. It can be as short as few minutes only. It provides a chance of short period of time for participants to stop and think (to reflect) about their actions and attitude toward the program. 

Short or Long Solo  

After Solo, we will give a chance to the participants to talk about:

  • what they think and feel about the experience,
  • what is the purpose,
  • are there any benefit,
  • general feedback.

 

ROPE CONFIDENCE COURSE

 We has a series of rope and wooden bridges, platforms, nets and ladders designed to provide various levels of difficulties from the easy to the challenging. These are for personal challenge and test, building self confidence, teamwork and mutual trust and support.

There are two types of ropes confidence course 

 
Low Ropes
 

A series of exercises which is set 1 ft. - 15 ft. above ground. Activities include Zip Wire, Burma Bridge, Wobbly Log, Tranges Tyre, Traverse Tension, etc.
 

 
High Ropes
 

A series of exercises which is set 25 ft. - 40 ft. above ground are activities such as the Circuit, Trapeze Jump, Abseil and Flying Fox to name a few.

 
Trapeze Jump
 

Climb a ladder and leap from a platform to catch a swinging Trapeze.

 
Abseil
 

Reach a platform along a rope bridge and then descend byusing a rope and control the rate of descent using a device (figure of eight).

 
Flying Fox
 

Ride an exhilarating zip wire high up in the trees.
 

 
OBSTACLES COURSE
Participants will be race in teams between 4 - 10 elements. The course includes crawling, climbing, river crossing etc.
 
PAINTBALL WARGAMES
Participants will be divided into teams of between 5 to 7 persons and will then compete to capture a center flag within a given time
 
TREASURE / SCAVENGER HUNT
Participants will compete byteams to solve clues, complete tasks and look for hidden items. At the completion of each clue, the next puzzle or clue will be provided in order to reach the final results within a given time
 
TEAM BUILDING GAMES
Divided into teams participants will compete to accomplish the game within a given time
 
ROCK CLIMBING and ABSEILING (RAPELLING)

There are mainly two areas of operations for this activity. The artificial rock wall  which is perfect for beginners. 

The purpose of the rock wall is to provide a safe, educational and fun venue for climbing and abseiling (rappelling). Participants have to climb the rock wall safely using ropes, harnesses, belay device (ATC), Karabiners for protection. Descending (abseiling) from the top of the wall needs courage and a sense of adventure. Individuals have to control their own rate of descent using the device (figure of eight) and suspended bya safety line controlled bythe instructor.

Aims:

  • increase self-confidence
  • generate trust
  • decision making involving risk and courage
  • break down previously held physical and mental limitations
  • to help group understand the importance of mutual support to an individual in overcoming problems and reaching goals.

 

Abseiling
 
For abseiling, we are using the rock wall and the high ropes circuit. On the rock wall, usually an exercise called Self-Programmed Abseil is often used with management courses and presented as a project to be managed with little help from Instructors except for technical and safety advice.
 

  Aims:

  • careful interpretation of written instruction to successfully complete a task
  • management of multi-faceted project involving perceived risk
  • co-operation / team building
  • planning
  • trust
  • confidence in oneself and others
  • determination to succeed
  • communication skills
  • leadership
  • and of course... to have fun

 

WHITE WATER RAFTING AND WHITE WATER TUBE RAFTING

Rafting is usually used in one of the following ways:
• as part of the final expedition on Challenge Course
• as part of a one day jungle walk / one day raft combination on shorter course
• as a separate one day activity itself

• as a part of a program activity

Instead of a rubber boat, we used inner tube or inner and  bamboo lashed together to form a raft that will be used on t river, lagoon or lake.. This practice is very beneficial for the participants as they will work together to build a strong and practicable raft for their own group. Everyone will be involved in this process which at the same time, will enhance the level of teamwork, brainstorming, decision making and leadership, to name a few.

Rafting is a good chance indeed for individuals to practice skills in sometimes stressful situations. It will also activate the initiatives of the group in deciding which way to go while tackling a rapids.


                

Raft Building Exercise
This exercise is done on the rive or lake site. Group will be given certain amount of time to discuss, plan and finally build their raft. The objective is to build a raft byusing the inner tubes and bamboo or blue plastic barrels and wooden spars, that can accommodate all the members in the group and to cross the river safely.

Aims:

  • Management of multi-faceted project
  • planning
  • presentation skills
  • budgeting
  • creativity
  • Management of human resources, equipment, technical skills allocation, finances and time

 

JUNGLE TREKKING
 

Short expedition starting from base camp is usually done as a half day, full day or over two days and overnight stay in the jungle, whereas, the Long Expedition is done in 4 days 3 nights including a day of community service in one of the kampung (rural village). At the end of the walking day, the participants use their parang to cut wood from the jungle. They build a frame, tie it together with jungle veins, and place a tarpaulin over it. They sleep communally in their "longhouse" tents and cook over traditional campfires.
 

JUNGLE SURVIVAL
 

Based on the real life experiences of the instructors / motivators with no hunting or hurting of any wildlife! The emphasis on using the jungles as a friend . Suitable for anyone with good sense of humor and an open mind!
