School Holiday Program Outcomes

 

Self-awareness: At this transitional stage in life, young adolescents are beginning to think about themselves in new ways and to shape a new identity for themselves. We aim to equip them with tools to help them form a constructive and meaningful identity.

Self-confidence: Our Young Explorer program is designed to provide challenging experiences whereby young people can discover their true potential. By providing a challenging yet supportive environment we are able to focus on the positive aspects of adversity and teach young people that they are stronger than they give themselves credit for.

Spirit of initiative & adventure: Early adolescence is a stage when young people are re-defining their boundaries and seeking new experiences. We not only provide a positive outlet for this, we also show young people the value of seeking meaningful and challenging experiences rather than mere “thrill seeking”.

Fun! Above all, this is a fun experience that will keep teenagers engaged from start to finish. By creating a fun and positive atmosphere, our instructors keep young people engaged in the program and the learning opportunities that it entails. This is a holiday program with a difference.
