Ark Eden has been running holiday camps for children aged 5 – 11 years since 2008. These camps have become very popular and now generally run over every school holiday throughout the year.
Most camps take place at our site – a forested valley garden in the foothills of Mui Wo, Lantau Island but sometimes we go on journeys to beaches, waterfalls and other islands.
Our camps mostly run Monday to Friday and are day-camps. On some Thursday nights we have over-night wild camps and sleep in tents.
our camp philosophy
Our camps emphasize care for themselves, each other and for the earth - bringing out compassionate, curious, creative and adventurous learners
We emphasize creative thinking through play - imagining a ‘forest playground’ where children choose their own activities, invent their own games and unleash their curiosity
PROBLEM SOLVING THROUGH STORY TELLING
Our days are often themed, tied together with 'story drama' where children are thrown into some form of adventure allowing them to think creatively and solve problems
RE CONNECT WITH NATURE
Children ‘work’ on our farm and help care for our food forests. We learn how to care for animals and all the small creatures around us, how they live and our relationships to them and the land.
we learn skills – how to make things from wood and plants, how to cook and what we can eat from nature, how to make a fire and many, many other amazing things.
