Hero’s Journey 3.0 Happening February 2018

20170205_171216

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.

自然与艺术奇遇–2018年菲律宾亲子英雄之旅3

美国神话学大师约瑟夫·坎贝尔(Joseph Campbell,1904-1987)在《千面英雄》总结出英雄是能够了解、接受进而克服自己命运的挑战之人。《千面英雄》从“千面”的角度来解释单一英雄原型。“启程”“启蒙”“归来”是坎贝尔神话理论的中心思想。我们再次前往菲律宾原始热带丛林,未经雕饰的海水沙滩探险,享受淳朴的风土人情。想象一下,湛蓝的天空、变化多端的海,高耸的椰子树、悦耳的涛声。

天津乐学乐尚Levelup教育中心负责人卡尔Carl倾情加盟,他与妻子Samantha创办的幼儿园,英语和艺术培训机构。5年间,乐尚默默无闻的存在,不打广告,学员近300人 。这十天的旅程由Carl和5名菲律宾引导师facilitators全程陪着孩子们。他们拥有10多年与儿童工作的经验,能够确保孩子们在菲律宾的整个过程都能处于英语浸入式环境。第一英雄之旅,孩子们与引导师Camile,Marc等人结下了深厚情感。第二次英雄之旅,我们共同见证影子戏老师Taj 与孩子们营造的光与影的梦幻世界。
