At Wheeler Adventure we focus on giving program participants the opportunity to learn through participation and reflection through hands-on activities and visual observations. Wheeler Adventure uses creative and unique team-oriented activities that promote cooperation, communication, group problem solving, and conflict resolution. Located in Seekonk, Massachusetts and affectionately called the Wheeler Farm, the campus for Wheeler Adventure is a perfect natural preserve for outdoor instruction in ecology and science with low & high ropes course elements including a zip line and team-building exercises. The success of any program rests on the quality of its people, and Wheeler Adventure has a highly trained and experienced staff with the resources to deliver leadership training and a meaningful curriculum to groups of up to 200 participants. The Wheeler Adventure staff are trained in activities designed to promote group community, cooperation, trust, leadership and communication. Participants quickly learn to work as a team in a variety of activities that are fun, educational, challenging and meaningful for everyone involved.
At Wheeler Summer Camp, all campers participate in our team building, adventure and nature-based programs. Our experience tells us that through these types of programs, our campers develop their leadership and group dynamic skills and leave summer camp more confident, able to form stronger friendships, with a sincere appreciation for nature and the environment in which they live.
