Staff from the School at the Camp

Our Camp is fully managed by our team, including a Camp Manager that oversees operations, an Activity Manager that ensures the pedagogical path and our talented staff of senior trainers. However, staff from your school are around to help students if they have any questions and to effectively follow-up on the camp and learning outcomes back at school.

All Inclusive Service

Our programmes are completely managed by our staff and are all-inclusive from custom brochures for parents and students to all equipment and activities. Of course, your staff are more than welcome to join during the workshops to effectively follow-up on personal action plans that students develop throughout the course. If you let us know what leadership skills you would like your students to build upon and we can put together a suggested programme.

Covid Safe

Student and staff wellbeing and safety are our top priority. We have been operating school programmes and summer camps under Covid-19 since June 2020, going above and beyond national and international Covid-19 Protection guidelines. We work with any number of students as we have a safe approach whereby we divide larger groups of students into smaller ones, each guided by a senior trainer.
