Qualified teachers, coaches and staff will be available during all camp hours to ensure your child enjoys their experience. As safety is of utmost importance to us, our staff will be there to ensure your child is supervised at all times.
A school nurse will be on site to care for any injuries or students who come down with illness. The school nurse will monitor the students throughout the day to ensure all are well. If a child is ill, the parent will be contacted and the child will be sent home. One member of staff on every off-site trip will be qualified in First Aid and basic life-saving techniques.
English Requirements- All lessons, instructions and camp activities are conducted in English. A basic level of English is required for the safety and happiness of the participants.
Insurance-Our insurance package covers basic accidents that occur on and off-site during camp hours only and is limited to 20,000 THB. Therefore it is highly recommended that you purchase additional health and travel insurance when visiting Phuket.
School Bus Service- Bus transfers to and from the school campus may be arranged with our fleet of eight minibuses. Groups who book the bus must provide one responsible adult to ride both ways on the bus. The fee is 1,500 THB per day/ per bus. This includes collection from one prearranged pick up point and transfer to school, and then return to hotel (or other prearranged destination) at the end of camp hours.
Food Service-A full International lunch buffet as well as two snacks will be provided daily. A packed lunch or prearranged meal will be arranged for students on field trips.
End of Week Presentation- Parents are invited to attend a short performance by the students at the end of the week.
