Eco camps for kids in Bangkok during the summer holiday

This summer during school holidays – PATT Foundation will be providing 1 night 2 day overnight camps, as well as Eco kids camps.

Khao Yai overnight camp

The residential will run throughout the summer holidays – from June 26th until 20th August. We will leave Bangkok every Monday 8:30 am and return Tuesday 5:30pm. The camp will be situated at the Khao Yai Sap Tia resort and once there the young people will engage in various activities, such as tree planting, GPS, orienteering, nature walks, camping and survival skills.

The camps have a holistic approach, which will encourage young people to learn about the environment, while developing social and life skills. Each camp will have its own programme of activities (although this will be flexible to the needs of individuals and voice and influence) and will enable young people to gain voluntary service with PATT Foundation. Although the camps are very informative and develop young people’s skills and knowledge, they also provide a fun safe environment; which is focused on supporting young people to build relationships, building self esteem and confidence. The camps are for children aged between 10 -14yrs.
