This year we will be running 4 HANDS Camps. HANDS is an acronym standing for Helping A Neighbour Develop Skills. On our HANDS Camp, we use real tools to build some life-size projects!
Here at HK Forest Adventures, we believe there is no point in building something small if you can build it BIG! We will be building GINORMOUS Cardboard houses or a cardboard coat of arms! How about making a self-drive, cordless power drill powered racecar big enough to take you to the jr Formula 1 championships. On our Demolition Camp, we will see how to open stuff, blow stuff up, take things apart and see if we can put it back together again or build something completely new! Or how about creating a GIANT pallet house that you can have sleepovers in?
Under the mentor-ship of some real craftsmen and artist, we will teach the children the lost art of thinkering and making!
Q. What activities will be involved in the camp?
A. We are a play based, child led program. All our activities and plans for the camp revolve around that core value. In saying that we can tell you that because it is early autumn, that every camp (weather permitting) will be engaged in water play and outdoor adventuring.Added to that are the activities that we will initiate with the children, but that the children will expand on, that are centered around the camps theme.
Q. Where is the location of the Camp?
A. We use the latest weather prediction to choose a location for our camps. Therefore we need to wait until a prediction is available before making that decision. We will email the camp registered participants the camp location, when we know it.
Q. Can I accompany my child?
A. Children under the age of 4 need to be accompanied by a care giver. If your child is older then 4, we ask if you can entrust them to us, as they generally engage more with the entire group, when they do not have a parent/helper around. However if your child needs you to join him/her on the camp, that is alright. We ask that you can pay HKD100, per day, to cover transport.
Q. Must I prepare a lunch for my child to bring with?
A. Yes, as well as a small snack and drink.
Q. What is the difference between a Forest Camp and a HANDS Camp?
A. Forest Camps, are where we go to locations within HK's multitude of country parks and some even private country areas. We explore, engage in free play around our camp theme, learn about the forest we are in and grow in confidence in water play.
HANDS is an acronym for Helping A Neighbour Develop Skills. In the HANDS Camps we will be teaching specific skills to the children. These camps are aimed at ages 6 - 12. We will be using our campus in Tai Shui Hang for this, as it is where we have all our tools etc. The Hands camps will also have free play time, which will utilise all the play areas at our Tai Shui Hang Campus; the upper playground, The Dungeon, the stream and our Farm.
