Would you like to develop dynamic learning opportunities for others? Do you want to practice adding educational value to

outdoor activities? Are you looking for ways to improve your facilitation skills?

Then Over the (H)edge might be THE project for you!


Over the (H)edge is all about exploring the creation of dynamic youth exchange experiences, while adding educational value to simple
activities and discovering the joy of facilitation. Simply said: practicing basic facilitation techniques while delivering fun and impactful activities!

After having developed various exchange experiences focusing on outdoor activities, cooperation and community living for more than 5
years, it is time to take the next step. We would like to share the know-how and show the “behind the scenes” of our work. We would like to offer a playground for you, through which you can explore the creation of such dynamic learning opportunities.

During these dynamic 6 days you will have the chance to discover:
– how to add educational value to activities;
– how to guide the learning process of other people;
– how to stand in front of a group;
– how to give instructions for an activity – how to close an activity;
– how to stimulate the cooperation and community aspect;
– how to create context-based programs;
– how to develop dynamic exchange experiences;
– how to turn separate activities into a learning program;
– how to develop your own method.
