Why

CanChi Educaltural  Camps ?

 

Chinese students in middle and high schools endure a lot of pressure.  They have to toil day-in day-out in their studies to become the best so as to enter the best schools or universities.

 

Research indicates that physical activity in an outdoor natural environment not only helps increase one's life-span and greater well-being, but also increase one's ability to function better at school.  Camp experience is known to enhance learning skills development and total educational development. 

 

Experience of the outdoors and wilderness has the potential to confer a multitude of long-term benefits on young people’s physical development, emotional and mental health, including their well-being and societal development.

 

Camping is an ideal environment for a child to learn, grow and have fun.  At camp, children are safe, secure, healthy, active and happy.  They develop friendships that last a lifetime.  Guided and supported by young leaders who are excellent role models, campers acquire hard skills to enjoy in a lifetime of leisure pursuits.  Campers are encouraged to be co-operative, caring, tolerant and respectful – qualities which benefit them beyond camp.  They also learn to become more independent and self-confident; they develop leadership skills and acquire an appreciation and respect for nature.

 

Camping is a unique experience.  At camp, a random collection of children and young people, who are initially strangers, is placed together to live, learn, work and play for a period of time under the guidance and example of the counsellors and directors – most often in a natural setting and almost always away from home and parents.  This random collection evolves into a cooperative community as the individuals grow together.  This growth is evident as each camper becomes more helpful, patient, caring, respectful, tolerant, capable, confident, independent and skilled in a variety of life's aspects.

 

The CanChi Educaltural Travel & Camp events are also an opportunity for students, and parents, to get detailed information about studying in Canada.  Participants will be briefed on student visa requirements by Citizenship & Immigration Canada and participate in high school and university informational conferences by related regional school boards and provincial education authorities.

 

The CanChi Educaltural Travel & Camp activities also include visits to numerous universities such as the University of Toronto which ranked 21st in the UK organization Times Higher Education's World University Rankings for 2012-2013, as well as visits to McGill University which ranked at 34th, the University of Montreal at 84th, McMaster University at 88th and the University of Ottawa at 171st.  Also ranking in the top 200 were the University of British Columbia (30), the University of Alberta (121) and the University of Victoria (196).  More detailed rankings are undertaken each year by Canada's famous Maclean's Magazine.  Check out their 2013 rankings on their website.
