Insight Adventures’ personal development camps draw on our years of experience organising adventure learning, cultural immersion, and expedition style programmes, to teach young people in areas not necessarily covered during classroom learning.
Our Changxing Island Adventure Camp is a 6 day, 5 night programme open to children aged 7 to 17. This programme will focus on guiding our students in developing a variety of essential life tools such as social skills, teamwork, communication, and collaboration. To achieve this goal, students will work together to overcome the myriad of exciting challenges sprinkled throughout our wide range of fun and educational activities.
With 24 hour supervision and care by Insight Adventures’ trained facilitators, all meals, activities, accommodation, transportation and insurance are included for the duration of the programme. Students will be divided into groups according to their age and experience, just as they would be during their regular extra-curricular activities or residential weeks organized by schools.
This programme takes place in Shanghai at our Insight base on Changxing Island. The island is located between Chongming Island and the Pudong New Area in the northern Baoshan District. This sparsely developed island is just 1.5 hours away from downtown Shanghai making transportation extremely convenient, and with plenty activity options, Changxing Island is the perfect location for students who need to get out of the city without even having to leave Shanghai.

With the exception of the first and last, each day of the camp has the same basic structure and routine with students typically waking up at around 7am, and then after a long day of exciting and fun challenges, heading back to their rooms for some much deserved rest at roughly 9pm.
