There is magic in the feel of a paddle and the movement of a canoe, a magic compounded of distance, adventure, solitude and peace.

Sigurd F. Olson

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.
