School camping trips provide students with a chance to work with adults, build stronger relationships, value experiential learning and acquire fresh perspectives. Needless to say, involvement of teachers is crucial to build bonds among students and teachers, in an informal setting away from the monotonous curriculum.
Benefits of School Camping Trips
On school adventure trips, students get various opportunities to excel in several social skills, from developing new relationships to strengthening old bonds. Some activities focusing on these areas include tidying up their own cabins, team building exercises, helping with meal preparations and overcoming personal challenges, such as cycling, trekking, giant swing etc.
In addition to this, school camping trips also allow students to build independence and confidence. Time away from home can make them realize the importance of time management, personal hygiene etc.
Students are able to appreciate the importance of connections and interactions with other people. Most students tend to rise up to the challenge, and have a great time exploring this new-found confidence and independence.
School adventure trips also allow students to develop decision-making and leadership skills. With positive decision-making, students are able to lead the way for weak students in class. This even takes some burden off teachers.
Last but not the least, a college or high school camping trip exposes students to numerous experiences. These fresh experiences can lead to learning in various forms, while providing students with awareness of their capabilities and skill sets.
