At Camp Evolution, we are all about giving children a mix of education, fun, and self-boosting activities. There’s so much to learn and make relatable to everyday life and the future.
Camp Evolution residential camps are designed to build and strengthen the soft skills that truly improve employability prospects later in life but rapidly help children to navigate their teenage years with more confidence and awareness, demonstrating to them that they truly are the key to their own success.
Residential camp activities give children an opportunity to develop their inner confidence, communication techniques and introduce them to leadership and collaboration techniques. Further workshops concentrate on critical thinking and problem-solving. Camp Evolution’s aim is for each child to finish camp knowing he/she has learned lots of new things, made new friends and feels fresh motivation for the future.
Spotlight on activities
CREATING A PERSONAL VISION
The ‘Creating a Personal Vision’ workshop enables children to consider their future and define their goals, helping them to keep moving in the right direction to achieve their dreams.
TEAM AND INDIVIDUAL CHALLENGES
Challenges help children to appreciate the importance of collaboration and self-discipline when working independently.
ESSENTIAL LIFE SKILLS
Greater independence leads to better living and work opportunities, so the more life-skills teens develop, the better their future will be.
EDUCATIONAL AND CULTURAL TRIPS
Visiting places of interest such as museums or discovery centres opens the door for children’s curiosity. The visits we choose include references to history which has made an impact in some form or another on our lives today but also on the future of our great nation.
KEY THINKING SKILLS
Camp Evolution help children to develop their critical thinking skills. Key thinking helps children to make independent judgments by evaluating information, keeping an open-mind and considering alternative solutions.
