The world is a huge place. How will you know where you fit in unless you explore beyond your comfort zone

Navigator Camps are designed for the age group to improve their technical and soft skills as they progress through the week. They will navigate through different areas of Hong Kong using water as a medium. Giant SUP, Kayak and Stand Up Paddleboard will be our way to venture into the waters while developing paddling skills. Teamwork, leadership, resilience, and risk-taking are some of the aspects they will build on throughout the week.
