SCHOOLS & YOUTH
The program consists of multi-element or activities using either a center or journey based (where participants journey to different locations) concept. It focuses on self development, and realising strengths, limitations, and potentials. It is a highly impactful personal and group development challenge program. Participants will be tested through real challenges where they will understand self-imposed personal limits and then extend those limits. It is an experience that emphasises on character building and leadership development to help students and youths better face challenges in life.
Since 2005, Wilderness Malaysia has been assisting schools and trip coordinators to design and conduct age-appropriate experiences which aim to teach youths the values that we believe are integral to their personal development. These values are self-confidence, leadership, initiative, flexibility, teamwork, acceptance of cultural diversity, respect for self, respect for others and respect for the environment.
The participants will be challenged socially, intellectually, physically, emotionally and creatively by both the natural consequences of the wilderness environment and the requirements of the activities. The program is framed as a 'Journey' where as a team, the participants will be required to overcome many obstacles along the way in order to succeed and bring about self-awareness and growth both as individuals and as a group of people.
Our experiences are designed incorporating tools such as a ropes challenge on a tall ship, sea kayaking, jungle trekking, cave exploration, abseiling, cycling, raft building and many more.
Our programs are mainly conducted in Langkawi offering the perfect setting: beautiful beaches, mangroves rich in flora and fauna and where virgin jungle meets the sea and mountains. In addition, we also conduct programs in other areas including:
- Gombak, Selangor
- Hulu Langat, Selangor
- Broga, Selangor
- Port Dickson, Negeri Sembilan
- Tanjung Leman, Johor
- Gopeng, Perak
- Royal Belum, Perak
- Pulau Pangkor, Perak
- Jeram Besu, Pahang

Our home base in Langkawi provides an ideal wilderness setting for us to design expeditions that provide the best challenges for our participants.
We offer a variety of customized itineraries and assist International Award Coordinators to design and deliver adventure expeditions (as well as training and practice) ranging from Bronze to Gold level. Expedition length ranges from 3 days to 7 days. All of our expeditions can be customized to meet the requirements of the school.
In addition to our outdoor adventure programs, we also offer syllabus specific field trips which are experiential based learning experiences that will compliment your teaching in the classroom.
Our trips are designed and customized to enrich the students learning and meet the requirements of each school’s syllabus requirements. Our goal is to provide you with a safe, reliable and educational trip and make it as worry-free as possible.
