At JFK Swiss Outdoor Camps offers multiple opportunities to explore an alpine environment. Every week a different theme, Water with all the water adventure activities, Mountain, with hiking and camping and Rock with natural rock climbing learning all the techniques. With all senses students will explore forests, streams, and mountains. For example, students will survey a mountain stream, test water purity, velocity and temperature. They will explore flora and fauna of a river and find out how it changes over the course of the river.
Multiple opportunities allow students to discover for example the wonders different rock formations have to offer. They will not only discover different geological rock formations, but also learn how limestone was formed and will search for fossils. In addition students will discover how different animals such as birds, insects and ibex use a rocky habitat for their purpose.
Outdoor learning is all about Nature. You learn with demonstration and evidence. Touching and seeing is all it is about.
Adventure is the move that thrives us now in this world. Watching nature will never be the same after our camps.
Team work will teach us how to work in a group, how to tolerate others and how to build self esteem.
