OWN Inspiration Camp by OWN Academy returns for the third summer! OWN Academy is an education innovation company that focuses on real-world learning by reengineering the what, how and where we learn. As we all know, traditional summer programs – students learn one topic, in one space for one week. Instead, OWN Inspiration Summer Camp is designed to engage students with a different theme, experience and environment every day to expose them to new ideas and inspire their love of learning. More importantly, as a traveling school we take students outside of their comfort zone, challenge them and develop their character through new experiences and meeting new people.
OWN Inspiration Summer Camp Level 1 is designed based on OWN Academy’s’ ExCCEL formula – Exposure, Creativity, Consciousness, Entrepreneurship and Learn to Learn – these elements together are crucial in developing deep learning. Similarly, a lifelong learning mindset is a success factor of the future. Therefore, we travel throughout this camp to cultivate the idea that we can learn anywhere and everywhere. OWN Inspiration Summer Camp focuses on designing the most powerful learning environments by making Hong Kong’s unique characteristics the backdrop of our classroom. With a strong focus on real-world learning, an out of classroom experience, integration with technology, we take a hands-on, experiential and research based approach to trying new things and discovering oneself. Innovative learning is at the core of what we do, hence, we covers topics of the future – Sustainability, Entrepreneurship, Design, Storytelling and Nature Adventure.
During the week, there are three overarching themes: Design Thinking, Connected Learning and Social & Environmental Citizenship. There is an element of design in our everyday lives and the camp will explore the concept of design within different contexts and functions. Connected learning is about understanding how seemingly disparate things are increasingly interconnected in today’s globalized world and promotes a better understanding of the implications of such relationships. Finally, Social and Environmental Citizenship explores how we are intimately connected to the environment and our fellow citizens in order to better understand the impact that our choices create. Throughout camp, we also embed the development of 21st Century skills such as Entrepreneurship, Creativity, Teamwork, Mindfulness, Exploration, Analytical Thinking and Reflection among others .
This program gives your child maximum exposure to a range of life skills that are not emphasized in the traditional classroom setting, but also encourages your child to fully exercise these life skills in different scenarios. More importantly, OWN Inspiration Summer Camp is designed to ensure maximum enjoyment for your child!
