Group Training
for Difficult Conversations


What is it? Base Camp is a repeatable, interactive tool that facilitates interpersonal growth by creating space to practice difficult conversations. Set within a story quest with game elements, it is a personal challenge, not a debate or competition.

What is the purpose? The purpose of Base Camp is to help small groups grow in skills of conflict transformation. Set within a story quest, Base Camp helps participants see each other and make space for disagreement and difference. It is a tool that can be used to facilitate silly conversations, serious conversations about important issues, or conversations around interpersonal communication and relationships.

Who is it for? Base Camp is designed for groups of three or more people (ages 12+) who want to grow in conversation skills. It’s great for book clubs, students, families, faith communities, or non-profit organizations doing bridge-building work. 


Base Camp is coming Fall 2020!
