Believe it or not summer is right around the corner! Let your kiddos get the classic summer camp experience at Asia’s first overnight camp, iCamp Thailand.
Want your children to have the classic summer camp experience but not keen to send them half a world away to get it? Opening this summer, iCamp Thailand is a unique, American-style summer overnight camp that also happens to have an international school license. It’s the first of its kind in the Asia Pacific region.
The three-week summer programme is intended for children and young people between the ages of eight and 16 who are looking for something exciting, challenging and character enhancing to do during the long summer holiday.
In addition to all the usual fun activities of a summer camp (dance, theatre, arts & crafts, and sports), the camp even offers a unique education programme for students who are struggling at school, if required. This includes activities to support learning and educational challenges such as language-based difficulties like dyslexia, English as an Additional Language, and struggles with maths, among others.
iCamp is set across 84 stunning acres of natural beauty in the province of Kanchanaburi, Thailand, which is dominated by the beautiful River Kwai Valley along with breathtaking waterfalls, caves, lakes and mountainous scenery – the perfect setting for the quintessential summer camp experience! Conveniently, it’s only 160 kilometres from Bangkok.
The emphasis is on fun, and activities are varied and enriching. On the whole, the programme provides opportunities for acquiring new skills and knowledge, boosting confidence and self–esteem along the way. Did we mention they have their very own Circus programme with a full-size trapeze and onsite water adventure?
Activities are also intended to instil an appreciation of the values of cooperation, tolerance, respect, caring and community spirit. Children are guided and supported by caring and experienced leaders who happen to be excellent role models. This ensures that they will thrive and grow in all areas of their personal, social and educational development.
At every level, the camp is multicultural and fully inclusive. Children will be safe, happy and fully engaged in a whole range of sporting, musical and educational activities. The nurturing approach taken by camp staff is particularly beneficial for children who may a little shy or lacking in self-esteem.
The long summer holiday is often the time that children become bored and drift into poor habits that can be ever so counter-productive. But with iCamp they’ll be so busy having fun (not to mention detoxing from electronics like phones, tablets and computers) that laziness simply isn’t an option. This means the transition from school to holiday and back to school again will be a total snap, mama!
