Llamas and Challenge Adventures:
Begun in 1989, Challenge Adventures creates adventures for youth and organizations focusing on the environment, youth therapy and empowerment.
Why llamas? “Llamas are gentle animals with a strong social structure. Each llama has a unique role in the herd and the herd itself provides a vivid living metaphor that CA therapists use to teach lessons about cooperation and teamwork. The llama also provides a projective device… participants frequently project their own identity, wishes and motivations onto their llama.” On their website you can read the bios of each llama.
