Autumn Adventure Camps (5-16 years old)
Got adventure sports in your veins? This is a day and overnight camp for adventures who want to experience a variety of exciting outdoor pursuits. They will develop outdoor leadership skills such as trip preparation, equipment management and self-organisation including a whole lot of fun! Adventure Camp has different outdoor activities every day, in various locations on Lantau island, with an overnight camping experience (usually from Thursday to Friday). Lunch and snacks are included daily. Adventure Campers must be capable and confident swimmers with good overall fitness and stamina.
