ABL is Adventure Based Learning and is activity focused. ​​​​​​​Made up mostly of activities that are completeed in smaller groups, e.g. In pairs, or on individuals basis. Activities are often a faster pace. 

Team Challenges is Adventure Based Learning but with a team challenge focus. These activities are built with larger numbers working together and tend to be slower paced and more thought provoking.
