In a world where we are increasingly challenged to strive for environmental sustainability, particularly around climate change, supporting social resources as well as economic growth, our Summer Camp has been carefully designed to introduce students to the needs of others, whilst caring for themselves, and the environment. Thailand leads the way in Southeast Asia in the drive to achieve sustainability, and with Bangkok as it’s capital city, there could not be a more inspiring backdrop for our Summer Camp that focuses on this very issue.
The beautiful lakeside campus of AISL Harrow Bangkok is in the capital’s Don Mueang district and boasts a spacious and green 35 acre site.
Students will enjoy the stunning garden campus which provides the ultimate indoor and outdoor learning spaces, a comfortable boarding village with four boarding houses and superb sporting facilities. Whether they are participating in water sports on the lake or participating in problem solving workshops, students will be motivated and stimulated by the impressive campus.
The Summer Camp programme will use the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UNSDG) framework as a tool to give students a greater understanding of how we are all globally connected.
There will be a sequence of progressively challenging activities, and students will be encouraged to problem solve using their own initiative, while taking into account the impact their decisions will have on their environment and themselves.
The activities list is extensive, and will include:
• Fun and challenging problem-solving initiatives
• Canoeing and water sports on the lake
• Engaging workshops
• Public speaking exercises
• Team games and sports
• Exciting and informative excursions
The Peak Challenge is the highlight of the camp. It involves an underwater farming task inspired by the Nemo’s Garden project. On Day Four, students will be introduced to the peak challenge and develop specific skills through three workshops including:
• Basic electronics and model construction skills
• Marine biodiversity
• Crop rotation problem solving task
On Day Five, each student will use their underwater ROV robots to plant their own underwater seaweed farm in the water. The challenge will test their ability to effectively and efficiently use their ROV to move the seaweed crops from smaller tasks to designated areas. Students will have developed the following skills:
• Building an underwater ROV robot
• Completing an underwater farming challenge
• Problem-solving skills
• Leadership skills
• Social awareness and sustainability
Moonlight Theatre is a unique and exciting part of our Summer Camp programme, specifically designed to encourage outdoor exploration. This activity offers a wide range of possibilities under the stars, including stargazing, storytelling, and group performances. With its versatility, Moonlight Theatre fosters creativity and teamwork skills while providing students with a chance to showcase their talents and create lasting memories in a beautiful natural environment. It's an opportunity for students to immerse themselves in the wonders of nature and experience the magic of the night sky.
Apart from Moonlight Theatre, our summer camp also offers a range of activities, one of which is the Human Library. The Human Library is an excellent opportunity for students to gain a better understanding of themselves and others by sharing their unique stories, promoting empathy and understanding among their peers. This activity fosters a safe and supportive environment for students to express their perspectives and experiences, which in turn promotes effective teamwork and strengthens relationships among the group.
The camp also includes daily DEAR Time sessions, which enable students to explore the connections between the activities, the leadership goals of the camp, and their own experience and learning, leading towards a 1:1 Goal Setting session on the last day of the camp where counsellors will discuss personal goals that students can develop as part of returning home after the camp.
Our Responsible Leaders Camp will provide an insightful and fun experience for students who want to learn and develop as responsible leaders of the future. The programme will be engaging and there’s no doubt that students will be talking about this exciting experience for years to come!
