Experiential learning is learning through reflection on doing. It includes activities and experiences that participants reflect on to gain meaning and generalize to everyday life. Paradise Valley Community College offers a variety of experiential learning based programs including a Puma Challenge Course and Team-building Challenge.

Led by trained staff and students, these programs offer a hands-on way for your group or class to develop their communication, collaboration, problem solving, risk-taking and coaching and leadership skills.

Scheduling the course is based on the availability of the training team.  Please review the calendar below for course availability.
