help your students develop key skills and mindset for life?
be one of the most important and nurturing experiences for your students?
Every child can help bring about new innovations, new ideas, new technologies, and new approaches that will make the world an amazing and safe place to live. But to do this, children first need to explore who they really are as individuals, discover their inner gifts and talents, and fully express themselves in everyday life. And this is probably what you would like to offer your students too if you are reading this. You would like to make a real change. And this is where we meet - it’s exactly what we believe in and are really excited to help you with.
Imagine your camp helping young children discover their natural talents and work through their gifts. It boosts their confidence in self-expression which virtually nurtures their natural leadership skills - the most important asset nowadays. And it all starts at YOUR camp!
This is exactly what conscious parents are looking for. And it’s what the New Paradigm Shift in Education calls for - meaningful learning experiences, inspiring play and learn environments that offer plenty of space for children’s self-expression, unleashing their creativity that goes far more beyond arts & crafts.
And this is what ambitious and passionate Educators like yourself are embracing today!

It’s a carefully designed theme-based learning journey that allows children to discover the best forms of self expression, and choose the modalities and tools that best suit their unique personalities. This adult-initiated journey transforms into a child-led adventure where children take the lead and experiment with the activities, tools and environments provided by the teacher or facilitator.
This camp scenario is an excellent tool for building relationships, collaboration and co-creation. It invites children to discover their leadership style, try new things, plan, reflect, predict, adjust, create, innovate, enjoy and inspire others - the very skills and values needed in the modern world.
It’s also truly future-oriented - this scenario has been designed by world’s top educators and based on the most effective and innovative educational approaches - Child-Led Play and Self-Directed Personalised Learning. It’s been planned around the Self-Expression theme, and it comes with detailed pedagogy guidelines for teachers and facilitators to help you cover the whole week-long timeframe and address all areas of child development.
