"Personal Growth for Positive Change"

We Lead from
Start to Finish

Dragonfly is unique in that we develop our own programs from the ground up, and lead all elements ourselves. In many cases, our company was the first to develop these locations, which means we know each area inside and out. Dragonfly has long-standing relationships with local communities and organisations. Our local knowledge assures the utmost attention to safety and understanding of all program elements.

Progress Year-on-Year​

Dragonfly has a comprehensive multi-year progression for activities and challenge level, locations, and skill development for ages 7 to 18. Program types evolve as students get older, and the life skills emphasized in our programs typically mesh well with schools’ existing social/emotional learning frameworks. We support what schools are already doing to reinforce elements of a well-rounded education.
