Team Building, Education and Adventure
Wheeler Adventure – providing hands-on education to create meaningful experiences
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.
Wheeler School 6th Grade Adventure in Leadership
New for SY 20-21, Adventure in Leadership program engages Wheeler and Hamilton 6th Grade students through experiences that extend classroom learning into the outdoors while helping develop the social-emotional skills students need in the classroom and beyond.
Adventure in Leadership connects students through practical and positive communication while exploring the inner workings of group dynamics and hands-on skills. Students gain confidence and build trust with their classmates and teachers as they work through a series of unique outdoor challenges that focus on problem-solving and decision making. At the end of each activity, small group discussions offer students time to debrief, discuss, and reflect on their experiences.

“Kids had an awesome time! I also thought the day went great. You and your staff were very professional and fun. I plan on returning next summer!”
“The students enjoyed it very much. My returning students that participated in the past, noted significant positive changes that they enjoyed tremendously, specifically – the teamwork and activities. They also mentioned how the staff made it fun. Their feedback all stated that “Bob, made it more fun and he really said a lot of things about life that I took into a great deal of consideration and will apply it to the future.”
“A huge thank you to you and the Wheeler team for an awesome day yesterday. The 8th grade teachers and I are extremely grateful for your thoughtful planning and hard work on a great program! We thought that the activities provided some great data about our kids this year. We saw some great qualities emerge in our students, but we also saw many things that we can help them work on throughout the year in order to prepare them for high school. For example, we saw communication (talking and discussing), but we need to address the effectiveness of that communication in regards to tone, active listening, and things like that.”
