PHUKET CULTURAL & ADVENTURE CAMP

From December 21st-23rd 2020, primary-aged children from across Thailand are welcome to attend UWC Thailand International School’s 3-day, Phuket Cultural & Adventure Camp. Join us to explore the great outdoors, get immersed in Phuket’s local culture and engage in activities that have a real impact on the natural environment and the local community. Children will be able to try their hand at Batik on Sa paper, master obstacle courses, plant mangroves and release baby turtles back into the sea! This camp will provide an excellent opportunity for your child to build their self-confidence, form new friendships, and improve their teamwork skills. Your children will also benefit from local knowledge, with our expert tour guides (also UWC Thailand teachers), Kru Kanok and her cultural team.

CAMP ESSENTIALS 

This camp involves a lot of physical activity. Your child should be prepared for several hours of physical exertion each day. We recommend packing an extra set of clothing (including socks and shoes) each day as campers may get wet at the beach and in the national park. Campers will be required to wear face masks and comply with Covid-19 prevention measures as mandated by the Thai government. Don’t forget, registration closes December 9, so book today.
