During the activity participants use and develop their senses through a series of tasks and games. The group will have a chance to reflect on how losing one of their senses feels and to consider others who have lost some of their senses. They will develop understanding of how communicating using other senses can enhance other skills.

Blind-folded, children follow a rope course through trees which leads them over and around obstacles encouraging them to rely on their senses. By working as a team, communication skills and trust are built within the group.
