Back in 1993, Village Camps won the first award for its new Leadership Training Camp. The Eleanor Eells Award, given to Village Camps that year by the American Camping Foundation, was for Programme Excellence as “The Best New Innovative Programme of the year”. Village Camps never looked back and has continued to provide quality, educational leadership programmes to young people around the world including Switzerland and the UK. We currently operate not only our own program but also organize Junior Leadership Universities for the prestigious Young President’s Organisation. A revised approach to this popular camp will now be offered at the Village Day Camp in Singapore for interested older children.
The camp is a full day programme in English with morning and afternoon sessions designed to immerse students in a variety of adventure based activities that will enhance their leadership and problem solving skills as well as their ability to collaborate as part of a team. The essence of Adventure/Leadership programming is teaching the basics of communication, cooperation and trust within a fun and safe environment. The course will challenge students individually and in a team through games, workshops, group initiatives tasks, new skills (lead climbing, kayaking, water safety) and high ropes activities. Students will lead, create, think outside of the box and step out of their comfort zones. The end goal will be for campers to create and lead their own activities as a group to younger campers as part of the day camp programme. All this….and still having fun!
We suggest that parents who register their children for this course try and do so for a full session (two weeks) as this will be sure to set the stage for better results.
