Inquiry Adventures' Response to COVID 19

These past weeks, during the Covid-19 pandemic, have been a challenging time. As an organization which seeks to foster social and emotional wellbeing through physical connection, social distancing is not something we ever thought we would be encouraging. Yet for the safety of all of us, Inquiry Adventures is encouraging everyone to maintain social distancing efforts and are looking forward to the day when being together in person and connecting can, once again, be a source of great wellness. In the present moment, lets all use creativity to maintain social and emotional connections while being physically distant by using online resources and strengthening relationships within our bubbles.

We know well that taking that first step of self-and social awareness and self and social reflection to improve personal and mental wellness can be quite challenging and intimidating. At Inquiry Adventures, we believe and have seen first-hand that this process can actually be fun and meaningful at the same time.

Using our counselling experience and our expertise in facilitating group games and team building activities, our workshops will provide new ideas and activities that incorporate play as a means to foster engagement in personal and mental wellness. This would be appropriate for  any age group - Yes, Adults still like to Play!
