“There exists within everyone a grand passion, an outlandish thirst for adventure, a desire to live boldly and vividly through the journey of life”

With options to choose from Day Camps to Overnight Camps, the Adventurer Programs runs through every week of our Camp APA Summer schedule. Our focus is on strengthening participants’ sense of adventure and enjoying the great outdoors of Hong Kong while being amongst friends. As participants progress through different outdoor activities, they would build self-awareness, self-confidence and improve their social skills.

Itinerary (Adventurer Overnight Camp)


Day 1 

Teams will head to Starfish Bay in Wu Kai Sha where participants will explore a biodiversity hotspot and learn about the many unique natural habitats in the area that give rise to a variety of coastal species. Participants will also learn to paddle together as a team on a Giant Standup Paddleboard and discover the different areas of the intertidal cove. In the afternoon, participants will head to their overnight accommodation in Wu Kai Sha. After arriving at the accommodation and showering, participants will help with dinner preparations before an evening activity and settling into dorms.

Day 2 

Teams will embark on a day of kayaking at Wu Kai Sha Beach. Here they will develop kayaking skills in the sheltered bays and learn various paddling skills. Participants will practise capsize drills before taking a journey around the coastline while stopping off on some remote beaches. The group will then head back to their overnight accommodation for the evening.

Day 3 

Teams will head to Ma On Shan Country Park and hike around the area before doing a pioneering activity where they will need to build a series of camp structures from bamboo and rope. Participants will learn various knot-tying skills that can be used to tie equipment together. They will then head to a freshwater pool where they can cool off in the mountain stream. The group will then head back to their overnight accommodation for the evening.

Day 4 

Teams will head to Ping Nam Stream in Fanling for a day of gorge walking. Before heading on the gorge walk, participants will learn how to safely walk and scramble across technical terrain. Along the way participants will discover a series of refreshing natural rock pools and learn to navigate in the outdoors to their destination. The group will then head back to their overnight accommodation for the evening.

Day 5 

After breakfast on the final day, teams will take part in the Pierside Challenges where they will navigate to various checkpoints around the Wu Kai Sha area. Teams will need to work together to complete a series of land and water-based challenges to test the collaborative and risk-taking skills they have developed over the course of the week.
