Looking for staycation ideas? Why not sending your child to outdoor adventure camps in Hong Kong with helping them step out of their comfort zone and discover their potential?

ESF Sports are now partnering with Outward Bound Hong Kong to launch new programme - Outdoor Adventure Camp in this Winter. Outward Bound Hong Kong, an experienced outdoor education organisation, has been helping young people step out of their comfort zones and in to the wilderness for over 50 years! Outward Bound guides youth in discovering and developing their potential- whether they're learning to care for themselves, others, or the natural world around them. This outdoor adventure camp is sure to be a fun and empowering experience. Your child will connect with the beautiful wilderness that Hong Kong has to offer, build community with their peers and develop confidence in themselves along the way.

1-Day in the Wild*

15/ 16/30 Dec

*There are three different options in this 1-Day in the Wild programme. Your child can select more than one programme.

Option#1 Sit On Top Kayak

Sit On Top

Explore the rocky coastline and the island beaches of Hong Kong as students learn and practice beginner kayaking skills like paddling in a straight line, executing turns, and rescues.

But the most important learning goes beyond the map and the paddle: they will rely on your peers and practice their leadership as you take turns leading the group across the ocean. Unfamiliar and challenging environments will test their awareness and self-responsibility, as they gain confidence along the way. They will also see a new side of Hong Kong - wild, open and natural.
