OBJETIVE of the MULTIADVENTURE

That the participants adquire an introductory theoretical support in the classroom in order they can carry out some techniques and proceedings in the matter during the outdoor practice to be developed during three days. The idea is to give them the teachings comprised within the Multiadventure program with the activities involved that will begin when boarding an aircraft that will take off and go up to 3,000 mts. height where you all will simulate abandoning it for an emergency and in order to do that, the skydiving instructor and you will jump in tandem Parachute in a fall that will last a few minutes until getting back to earth over a determined area on the ground (area marked with a parachute deployed over the grass). Once everyone together, you will get your backpack along with your Survival Personal Equipment (SPE) and using a compass you will start your orientation by marking some bearings, being in this way, the beginning of a crossing using the Orienteering and Land Navigation techniques to get into the wilderness and begin applying the other techniques. In the course of the day you will learn how to get well oriented with the compass, make map reading and locate the cardinal points on the ground by means the use of natural methods likewise how to move yourself when walking in the nature, ever taking care during the Trekking, how to choose the best way, how to calculate distances as well on the navigation map as on the terrain, among others

The Multiadventure is mostly a Survival practice because you will have to survive during three days with your own survival ration (food) that we will provide at the beginning of the activities. Besides, you will have to take advantage from the wild natural resources because you will need to use them for your own benefit in the sense that they will be used for Shelter construction, Signaling, make Fire in a primitive way, build Stretchers, build Tools, etc, where to do that, the human factor will come first to live together in a group and to make a true work team. During that experience you will survive in view of the lack of food and also, you will need to get water and clean it to make it drinkable, make Fire by using traditional and primitive means, in presence of the lack of comfort to sleep in improvised shelters built in the outdoor, possibly bearing the extremity of the ground with its own climate. Besides, you will learn and apply the importance of the (P.M.A.) Positive Mental Attitude, Survival psychology, etc, situation that turn this Multiadventure into an unique event to give you a training like that, the one we introduce it for the first time in the world of teaching and adventure of Argentina.

ADVANTAJES

To live a unique experience of skydiving with a parachute instructor from an aircraft flying at 3,000 mts. of height and in the fall watch the ground around you at 360°, to get oriented while studying it, all of it with the aim of knowing the wild terrain from the altitude to then, survive during three days through a optimal trainingg that will be of great utility in the case you someday may be involved in a real emergency situation that may take you by surprise in a place and unexpected moment.
