Itinerary 


Monday – Gorge Trekking in Sai Kung

After meeting at Central Pier 4 we will journey by private bus up to Sai Kung to one of the many gorges in the area. The exact gorge will depend on the weather and water levels on the day. We will begin the day with some basic navigation instruction including map reading and compass use. As we navigate through the gorge the participants will learn how to scramble and spot each other, keeping themselves and their teammates safe. There may be some opportunities to get wet so make sure you bring a change of clothes and your water shoes! Once we get out of the gorge we will do some survival skills including shelter building before getting back on the bus to head back to Central Pier 4.

Tuesday – Coasteering on Lamma Island

After meeting at Central Pier 4 we will get the ferry out to Lamma Island for a day of coastal exploration. We will start off the day with some basic navigation techniques before beginning our adventure. The focus of the day will be to coasteer around a section of the island. This will include navigating through lesser known walking trails, scrambling across the boulders of the coastline, and playing games on the secluded beaches that can only be accessed by coasteering. The day will finish with a ferry trip back to Central.

Wednesday – Rock Climbing on Lamma Island

Today will be spent out on Lamma developing our rock climbing skills. We will get a private bus from Central Pier 4 over to Aberdeen where we will hop on a ferry to Lamma Island. Our climbing site will be on the sea cliffs on an isolated section of the island. Here the Camp APA facilitators will help each participant set their own goals and teach basic climbing techniques. Following the session the group may have some time for some games on the beach before getting on the ferry to head Central Pier 4.

Thursday – Giant SUP and Mangrove Exploration in Sai Kung

After meeting at Central Pier 4 we will journey by private bus up to Sai Kung for a day on the water. The group will learn how to work together to paddle and control a Giant Stand Up Paddleboard. We will use the GSUP to play games and go on a short journey. Afterwards we will explore some of the mangrove forests that can be found in Sai Kung, learning about the plants and animals that make up this unique ecosystem. After some further exploration and beach games we will make our way back to Central Pier 4 by private bus.

Friday – Abseiling on Lamma Island

The week will finish in dramatic fashion with abseiling out on Lamma Island. After the ferry trip out from Central Pier 4 we will hike up to one of the peaks on the island. Here participants will be able to push their limits by abseiling down one of the cliffs. Through support from their facilitator and teammates each participant can set their own goals and see how far they can go. After the abseil session the day will finish with some final team games and a review of the entire week.
