Camps provide great opportunities for students to learn more about themselves, to develop new skills and establish stronger relationships with each other and with teachers.
Camp activities give students an opportunity to see the benefit of challenges, the rewards of teamwork, and the satisfaction of personal growth. Our camps are carefully planned to give students a wide variety of experiences and benefits. As an essential part of the overall learning experience, all camp costs are included in your child’s school fees.
