SUMMER CAMP

Summer holidays are a quintessential part of a kid’s life. It’s something every kid is looking forward to all year, a chance to take a break from school and other routines. But for Parents, it’s a different story. Sometimes, the idea of letting kids wander around with no positive activity to occupy them can be dreadful for parents.

So we at Outward Bound Indonesia have organized an annual program for Teenagers called POWER TEEN Camp & Expedition. It’s a character building program designed for teenagers whose goal is to develop their self-confidence, leadership and inter-personal skills. Here are some literature about the importance of character building for the youngsters and how we can achieve that.

I believe that Outward Bound Indonesia has been an outstanding, one of a kind experience that exceeded every expectation in me. This experience has taught me to not dwell on how to make more money or buy things to be happy, but to be happy with what you already have” – Kelvin, 15 years old, Power Teen alumni 2012

They became more independent, they appreciated the house works and they were more grateful with the simple life that they had. For me this program is highly recommended and is one of the best ways to spend the holiday for kids.” – Caecilia, Parent of Power Teen alumni 2012
