Youth Wellness and Development Hunts


Children of all ages benefit from Social-Emotional learning (SEL). Defined by the Committee for Children as “the process of developing the self-awareness, self-control, and interpersonal skills that are vital for school, work, and life success,” SEL is becoming an increased priority in schools and other youth organizations. SEL activities enhance students’ connection to school, classroom behavior, and academic achievement. 

Tropical Treasure Hunt’s team building adventures naturally support many important components of SEL, such as teamwork, creativity, and maintaining positive relationships. Students will practice these important behaviors during the competitions, which result in a prize for the winning team but that also are low-risk developmental situations. These behaviors support skills already being developed in classroom settings.
