The team at Human in Motion (HIM) has developed a unique workshop for kids, which aims to build a more positive and dynamic team, class, and school. Their Kids “Climb” Everest experiential workshop re-enacts the challenges and choices of a Mount Everest climbing expedition. Faced with real-life experiences, including re-enactments from climber, adventurer, and motivational speaker Ruben Payan, workshop participants will face tough physical and mental scenarios.
The workshops are designed so that participants test themselves, and others, in order to build and develop:
– trust and teamwork
– goals and motivation
– leadership and confidence
– communication and listening skills
– creativity and critical thinking
An innovative and inspired approach to team-building and leadership, the workshop draws on photos, videos, and personal experiences from Payan’s Everest Climb. The program includes adventure games and activities, to help the kids build strategies for leadership and success. An emphasis is placed on working as a team and relying on others, which of course requires positive communication.
The Kids “Climb” Everest workshop is scalable to fit diverse groups and groups of any size. It can also be customized to integrate age-appropriate curriculum covering geography, social studies, humanities, history, and other core subjects. The workshops are free of charge and last for around one hour. Advanced scheduling is needed, so that they can be worked into the HIM studio schedule. Alternatively, they can be run at your school.
