This is a special and unique tour to the Philippines where the parents and children start and finish together but in between there will be a separation, hence the name, Hero’s Journey. Each is on a quest to find the hero within the self.
The children attend a camp in an art center with facilitators who ensure that they will be totally immersed in an English environment while enjoying nature and the beautiful surroundings. While this is happening, the parents will tour other sites. When they are re-united with their children, the parents will watch a shadow play performance which is the output of the kids’ workshops.
This camp is recommended for children ages 9 to 12 and will be good for them to experience another culture, practice being independent and enjoy an English environment.
This is the third Hero’s Journey conducted with children and parents from China visiting the Philippines. Through this, we hope to increase each child’s confidence in speaking English through fun, uplifting and educational activities indoors and especially, outdoors, enjoying all nature has to offer.
Throughout the ten-day journey, there will be 5 facilitators who will be with the children, conducting games and activities with them. They have 10 years of experience running summer camps for children and will ensure that the kids are in a totally English immersive environment during their entire stay in the Philippines. Carl from America will also be one of the facilitators. He has been running an English Learning Center in Tianjin for a number of years with his wife, Samantha. Taj, the shadow play workshop facilitator also has more than 10 years of experience teaching shadow play and art.
These are the two different routes for the children and for their parents. The parents’ route deviate from the kids’ for a few days.
We hope you can join us this coming February 2018!
