What We Have Been Doing Recently....

June was the end of our great spring season. Our trips ran from Yangshuo to Beijing and many places in between. Each trip unfolded a bit differently than the previous, but every trip left students with a valuable experiential educational experience. In Yangshuo, the trips took part in abseiling, rock climbing, trekking, and orienteering. The students spent the evenings camping at our base camp just outside of Fung Lo Village. Guizhou was host to some incredible cultural learning experiences as well as many of our experiential education activities that included abseiling, climbing, and archery. In Zhejiang and Beijing our more traditional outdoor education activities and team building left a lasting impression on the students. This spring was also the first year of our Hong Kong based outdoor program and due to its great success, expect more from this part of China in the future.

July marked the end of our staff training. All of our employees went through Alpine Climbing Development Institute' s (ACDI) guide certification course. Everyone was instructed on ropes, belay, lead climb, lead belay, cleaning and clearing anchors, as well as several other important safety factors.  The advanced course consisted of multi-pinch instruction, climbing assentation, and advanced mountain medical rescue. The vision of our founder is to have all Terratribes guides ACDI certified and held to the highest safety standards. 

The Bridge Charity is a collaboration between Terratribes and The Dalton School of Beijing. We are going to bring 18 students from Getu Valley Primary School to Guililn and Yangshuo on July 28th. The students will experience an outdoor curriculum that will have a lasting impact throughout their education development. Please follow our story and support us on the project.
