The Bottomless Bag Revival

by Karl Rohnke

The Bottomless Bag Revival is Karl's attempt to keep alive the original spirit, heart, and fun associated with adventure/experiential education. Have you been hearing comments that adventure education has become just a series of "been there, done that" activities? Consider: it's not how many new activities are available, it's how well you use the old ones.
Karl's take on adventure programming is detailed in such a way that the basic development and combining of communication, cooperation, and trust within a matrix of fun and enjoyment becomes both the "grail" and raison d'être of this both paradoxically simple and profound approach to learning and life.
For faithful readers of Karl's various books on adventure/experiential education, "Revival" is basically the same book as The Bottomless Bag Again!, with a new cover, new size, and some text changes.

A Small Book About Large Group Games

by Karl Rohnke 

The 23 games and activities included in this small book can be used with small or large groups, but the emphasis is upon how to use or adapt them to large groups (50-500 people). Does the thought of facilitating sessions of 50, 75 or 100+ participants cause you to have a convenient excuse ready as to why ". . .that particular date isn't good for me?" Perhaps what you need is an experienced guide and a batch of tried and true activities to maneuver through the yips and anxieties of looking at "all those faces."
The text alternates from regular print to bold. Regular print represents those things you need to know about the activities; rules, venue, etc. Bold print is Karl talking to you about tips and tricks specific to showing up, things to say, situations, what can go wrong, group size, etc.
A bonus final chapter by Gloree Rohnke covers the validity, practicality, and usefulness of processing with a large group.

Karl Rohnke.

A Guide to Games, Initiatives, Ropes Courses and Adventure Curriculum. The activities and curriculum covered flush out the Project Adventure philosophy toward learning, which in essence states that individuals are usually more capable (mentally, emotionally, and physically) than they perceive themselves to be, and if given the opportunity to TRY in a supportive atmosphere, can discover this excellence within themselves.

Forget Me Knots

by Karl Rohnke

A gentle reminder of the knots, rope and lore used on a challenge ropes course. The rope vocabulary and knot sequences in this book relate, as much as possible, only to ropes (challenge) course activities. The book's content is meant more as a reminder than a definitive text on the subject of knots. A bowline-on-a-bight learned on day two of a workshop often becomes a tangle of memory snipets and rabbits-in-holes by the time a participant returns home. Here's text support that beats a last minute phone call looking for help on those elusive cordage twists and turns; illustrations and photographs throughout.
