Students will learn social and emotional skills for life like teamwork, self-awareness, social responsibility, and physical confidence.

TESTIMONIALS

We had a blast and wish we had stayed longer! We hiked all throughout their basecamp, participated in engaging team building activities, and tested our leadership skills through their challenge course, including a high/low ropes course. At night, we stargazed as we roasted marshmallows under the almost full moon. At the end, we all received a certificate and got to know each other better on a personal level. Can't wait for our next trip up there!

~ Environmental Learning for Kids Colorado

This trip really took grit: every time students wanted to give up, they pulled one another along, motivating each other and supporting each other to reach our team goals

~ Democracy Prep

The annual COBS course serves as the capstone of an intensive three-week orientation and team building process focused on integrating new Fellows to the El Pomar team. Spending a week in the backcountry together expedites the team building process, as the concepts of goal setting, creating a shared vision, encouragement, communication, trust, and vulnerability are all introduced and addressed in a safe environment. It is an incredibly rewarding experience that never fails to provide valuable personal insights and growth, while strengthening the rapport among co-workers.
