INTERACTIVE
ADVENTURE TRAILS

For units that are interested in achieving NE objectives while having team-building at the same time, the Interactive Adventure Trails are ideal programmes. These trails facilitate experiential learning of history by immersing the participant in a “thematic storyline”.  Participants will have to work in teams and complete various tasks/missions along the way to achieve a common objective. What results from their participation is not just new knowledge  provided by a guide, but a personal discovery of what it means to be Singaporean.
