Exploration is curiosity put into action.

Don Walsh

The Explorer Camps are designed for younger children to explore nature and the outdoors with old and new friends. They learn new skills, explore their natural surroundings and the wildlife around them while gaining knowledge and experience. While in camp, they will learn to be independent, organized and build self-confidence.

The exact order of activity days and locations may vary for each individual camp and registered participants should refer to the itinerary in their Information Pack for the most accurate itinerary.

Itinerary (Explorer Winter Short Day Camp – 3 days)


Shek O – Mini-Coasteering & Pioneering 

Participants will head to Shek O and explore the beautiful pink granite coastline. After a safety briefing, participants will put on helmets and set off on a Mini Coasteering adventure. They will use their hands and feet to scramble on rocks and boulders, staying close to the shoreline. Participants will also learn the basics of pioneering – building small structures with ropes and bamboo.

Tai Shui Hang – Gorge Walk & River Boat Challenge

Participants will head to Tai Shui Hang, where a mountain stream has carved a deep valley on the slopes of Ma On Shan. Participants will put on helmets and learn techniques for a gorge walk. They will work together as a team to scramble safely on rocky terrain, clambering over big boulders. They will discover the unique flora and fauna that reside within this hidden ecosystem. There are multiple clear mountain pools and waterfalls: the perfect place to build and sail small river boats.

Wu Kai Sha Youth Village – High Ropes Course & Bouldering

Participants will head to Wu Kai Sha Youth Village near Ma On Shan for two very different climbing activities. After a thorough safety briefing, they will put on harnesses and helmets for the High Ropes Course. Participants climb to heights to tackle a variety of challenges – climbing walls, walking on wooden beams – all at heights. All these activities are supervised by staff, to high safety standards. The second activity, bouldering, is a great way to get comfortable with all basic climbing techniques. The goal is to complete a variety of routes, most of them going sideways.
