Summer camp is all about exploring the great outdoors, and outdoor education allows you to do just that.
Outdoor education can be anything from high/low ropes to the climbing wall, teaching children how to pitch a tent, to sending them down a zip line.

REACH NEW HEIGHTS IN CHINA
I'm now a qualified high ropes instructor.
Because of camp, I passed a high ropes course and gained 2 summers worth of experience belaying, tying intricate knots, and maintaining the safety of campers.
I love adventure, so I couldn't wait to get to China and take on the challenge. On arrival at camp, I completed an outdoor education training course, fully preparing me for the summer.
