How do students learn?
Experience shows that students learn best when they are happy, feel safe and can apply the skills in a practical setting. Our programme is designed in such a way that students develop leadership skills through activities like trips, games and various outdoor challenges. Throughout fun-filled workshops students learn several techniques that can be applied during all camp activities. Workshops are highly interactive and are given by industry and educational experts involving dynamic presentations, games, evaluations and personal action plans. Senior trainers work with students to give feedback on the things learned and how to apply the learning outcomes during the camp activities.
