Kids enjoy the summer holidays when they are busy, challenged and active and summer camps are a fantastic way to make this happen by providing the opportunity to try new things, get fit and active and meet new friends. Perhaps one of the greatest benefits is also the independence that children gain from being away from home and learning to look after themselves in a new and exciting setting.
Two years ago, we launched The Howling Gibbon Summer Camp which is a fully inclusive sports and outdoor adventure camp for children aged 8-13. Students from Thailand and abroad stay with us overnight for two weeks or three weeks at The Howling Gibbon Outdoor Education Centre located on the doorstep of Khao Yai National Park.
We offer a Sports Programme and an English Booster Programme in the mornings, and in the afternoons, we take part in outdoor adventure activities and sightseeing tours in the local area.
The Summer Camp 2017 programme included kayaking, jungle trekking, low ropes course, bushcraft skills, team building activities, raft building (and racing!), an overnight stay in Khao Yai National Park and much more! Both the kids and the camp staff enjoyed the activities and adventures, especially the brand new low ropes course AKA "The Jungle Gym!"
We can't wait for Summer Camp 2018 and we hope to see you there!
