RAMCC is proud to introduce an exciting and exclusive 5-day Hong Kong cultural and outdoor adventure. This is a diverse and perfect way to see what exciting things this exciting city has to offer. Most people know Hong Kong for its shopping and city life, but few get the opportunity to see and experience the beautiful outdoors. The trip will challenge students both mentally and physically, allowing them to learn and apply leadership skills, teamwork, creativity, outdoor skills both on land and sea, as well as their English skills since the course will be run in English. The students will also discover through this program where their comfort zones are and learn to push through them via team support and professional supervision. This is the ideal environment for students of all ages to reach their full potential as a well-rounded team player and team leader.
The students will complete creative, strategic and adventure challenges while navigating their way around Hong Kong city, going through the busy city to sleepy fishing villages to the famous Victoria Peak that are a big part of Hong Kong’s culture & history. During their 5 days they will have a day of city adventure race, a day of kayaking in the sea, an island adventure day with climbing, rappelling and zip lining all in the wilderness, finishing with a day at Ocean Park and sight-seeing in the busy and culturally rich Tsim Sha Tsui.
The students will develop greater self-awareness, acceptance of group and personal responsibility. The program promotes leadership qualities as well as independence in one’s learning and well being. They will discover Hong Kong’s outdoors, and through that learn to appreciate nature and Hong Kong’s environmental concerns, which are closely tied to China’s own environmental problems. They will learn to face physical and social challenges with an open mind and thinking out of the box. Through this program the students will discover their individual strong suits regarding teamwork, understand what type of leadership styles work for them, get daily reviews from experienced instructors regarding their performances during the day. To top it off the students will get a rare chance to see and experience places and food that are unique to this international city most people don’t know about, as well as strengthen their English language skills throughout the week.
