There are 14 key elements of the Rediscovery learning model. The model was designed to encourage people of all ages to explore the meaning of identity and culture and to facilitate positive change and growth at the individual, family, community, national and international level.
Participants at Rediscovery camps often gain in self-esteem, and since camps address the physical, spiritual, emotional and mental aspects of life, every participant can find an area or activity in which they excel. The increase of self-esteem is a consistent finding from virtually all published research on the long-term effects of outdoor programs. The programs foster a strong sense of cultural pride and a renewed sense of belonging, while participants develop relationships of trust and an increased sense of purpose.
Ghost River Rediscovery Society is an affiliate of Rediscovery International and utilizes the 14 elements of the Rediscovery learning model as a basis for its programming.
