As part of Project Week 2015, our students experienced team building and an outdoor adventure at Rising Field Karuizawa. Working in groups, students took on a variety of physical challenges, which provided an excellent opportunity to practice leadership, risk-taking, giving and receiving support, and collaborating for a common goal.
The day started at the low ropes course, with students working in small teams to complete various balancing challenges. Later, it was time for something a little more crazy – bubble soccer! For those up to the challenge, the high ropes course offered an extra level of intensity.
The day culminated in a classic adventure element called “The Wall,” in which an entire team must work together to cross a four meter sheer vertical barrier!
We are fortunate to have a premier outdoor adventure facility so close to our campus. Rising Field Karuizawa provided a challenging physical break from the mental rigors of Project Week, and many students came away from the day having accomplished something they did not previously think was possible.
