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.
This is a 5 day, 4 nights Kayaking Training Camp programme, open to children ages 12 to 18, focused on developing advanced kayaking skills along with social skills, teamwork, collaboration, and communication through a range of other exciting and challenging outdoor 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 will take place on our official Insight campsite located lakeside in Shanghai’s own Haiwan Forest National Park, only a 1.5 hours bus ride from SH city center. With 85 Hectares of natural waters and 30 Kilometers of forest-weaving rivers, students will have plenty of beautiful wilderness to explore.
Workshops and Discussion Topics:
With the exception of the first and last, each day of th 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.
Students will have an active and early start to their days with a variety of group activites ranging from basic yoga, to full on tabata workouts. All fun ways to get the blood flowing before a delicious breakfast.
Outdoor Base Restaurant Breakfast:
Simple and nutritious options that cater to both east and western tastes to ensure everyone is charged up and energized for a day of outdoor learning.
Morning activity session:
Activites that challenge students to step out of their comfort zones and achieve beyond what they thought they were capable of. In terms of kayaking, we will be going from theory, to practice, to comprehensive application, ensuring students plenty of advanced learning opportunities.
Packed or Local Restaurant Lunch:
Varied, nutritious and customised lunch options that suit the days activities, and location. Generally meals are made up of simple grains, meats, fruits and vegetables.
Afternoon Activity Session:
Using adventurous activites and experiences in unfamiliar environments as tools for teaching students in areas the may miss out on during regular classroom settings.
After a long day of activites, students will come back to the base to enjoy a large evening meal either in the local restaurant, or cooked on the BBQ on the camp grouds.
A key component of effective learning is reflection and being conscious about ourselves and the world around us. Evening activities take the time to practice mindfulness.
Clean-up and Bedtime:
Students will share rooms in the hotel located on our camp grounds, and also be share tents during their night of camping. All of our accommodations are held up to the highest standards of safety, comfort, and cleanliness. This insures participants the perfect place to rest at the end of a full day of activities.
Upon your request, we would be more that happy to provide you with the detailed schedule of our Kayak Training Skills program.
