Core Knowledge is acquired exclusively by experience
The majority of my experientially based teaching experiences were through the Kooch-i-Ching Camping and Education Foundation. For over 10 years I lead expeditions in western United States (backpacking) and northern Canada (Canoeing). There are curve balls thrown by nature's forces needing to be dealt with, effecting the individual and group. The experience develops a skill set, necessary for exercising gumption and appreciating adversity.
An intense experience containing elements of physical discomfort not only promotes personal growth, but it forces an individual to understand what it means to be an integral and valued part of a whole.
