Karl Rohnke, game-master from Project Adventure and author of numerous books on gaming, coined the term FUNN (Functional Understanding Not Necessary) to highlight the fact that if an activity is fun, it increases the potential for intrinsic motivation and involvement.
Creating moments of fun can draw the participants into the program – it’s quite irresistible! Doing something for no other reason than the fact that it’s enjoyable can break the ice with groups and assist in making the participants feel comfortable and safe, which then transfers to the rest of the camp activities.
As soon as you get off the bus, our Outdoor Education instructors begin the fun. They implement games and activities that get participants moving, engaged and enjoying themselves straight away! With every spare moment, they’ll slot in games, riddles and activities to increase enjoyment and engagement, all increasing the chances of learning and self-discovery.
