Experience-Based Training through Adventure Sports Instruction
Experiential Education is at the root of every program we run, and Adventure Instruction is one of the best ways to experience learning and teamwork. Our adventure guides are also trained as facilitators, so a GO-Adventures Adventure Instruction program is designed to go beyond teaching the fundamentals of rock climbing, caving, mountain biking, or wilderness skills – our facilitator-guides are dedicated to improving communication, building trust, and helping you to experience a heightened sense of awareness.
Our Adventure Instruction Programs Include:
Climbing is one of our favorite outdoor adventure activities, and the climbing areas around Maryland, Virginia and West Virginia provide some excellent opportunities for the novice and the experienced climber alike.
Specializing in instruction, our guides have both a passion for climbing and a passion for education – which translates into accelerated learning for climbers new to the sport. Our top-roping courses teach the basics of the simplest and most popular form of rock climbing – knots, belaying, anchors, and movement, while our lead climbing course will give you the skills to take your sport to the next level.
Caving or ’spelunking’ as many prefer, is an adventure sport that combines many different skills into one amazing experience. Crawling through tight squeezes, wiggling down tunnels on your belly or your backside, climbing up walls of rock – these are just a few of the challenges you might find in a cave environment. Pitch darkness is what makes caving so different from other adventure sports. All of the challenges of movement in a confined space are increased when you have nothing more than a headlamp or flashlight for light!
