Therapeutic outdoor adventures boost girls’ self-esteem by offering them new opportunities for personal growth in ways many never thought was possible. Vital life skills such as leadership, teamwork, problem-solving and communication skills are learned through participating in outdoor adventure activities. It is also empowering for girls to push beyond their preconceived or self-imposed limits.
Parents evaluating E-Nini-Hassee may wonder if their daughter will succeed here because she’s not an “outdoor type.” In our decades-long history, we have yet to meet a girl who could not benefit from some type of outdoor adventure programming. The majority of our students say what surprised them the most after graduation was how much they missed being outdoors and participating in activities like fishing, hiking, camping and our therapeutic ropes course.
