  • Inner Mongolia Leadership Expedition

    July 26th - August 1st 2020

    Open to students 14 years and older, this challenging course focussed on engaging young adults in challenging situations, encouraging them to reflect on their own strengths and weaknesses as a leader.

  • Programme Information

    Insight Adventures' personal development camps draw on our years of experience organising adventure learning, cultural immersion and expedition style programmes, to teach young people in areas not necessarily covered during classroom learning.


    This 7 day 6 night camp programme, open to students aged 14 to 17, focusses on engaging young adults in challenging situations, encouraging them to reflect on their own strengths and weaknesses as a leader.


    With 24 hour supervision and care by Insight Adventures' trained facilitators, all meals, activities, accommodation, transportation and insurance included for the duration of the programme. Students will be responsible for carrying their own food, water and equipment as they hike and camp for the entire 7 day programme.


    The programme will take place in the grasslands of Inner Mongolia, near Hohhot city. Students will fly to and from Hohhot either with our organised group flight from Shanghai or on their own.


    Flights are booked separately from this registration. The programme fees do not include flights.


    As this is a leadership expedition rather than an activity camp, the programme is comprised of daily hiking and workshopping with our trained outdoor leadership instructors.

  • FAQ

    Why should I send my son or daughter on a summer programme?
    Simply put, after what we've all been through over the past few months, most kids need to get out of the house, start being active and begin socialising again.


    I've seen a lot of summer programmes advertised, why should I choose Insight Adventures?
    We've been providing outdoor programmes for international schools in China (most likely including your school) for over 20 years and we know what we're doing.


    What is Insight's response to the COVID situation?

    Health and hygiene have always been a big part of our programmes so we didn't need to make too many changes to the way we do things.


    Some key new safety measures include:

    • Pre-arrival health assessments for staff & students
    • Dedicated hygiene workshops & additional hygiene stations 
    • Daily health check-ups for everyone on and around the programme 
    • A comprehensive response plan in case of signs and symptoms of an infectious disease

    The programme sounds fun, but what will my child actually learn on this programme?
    All of our programmes focus on a few key areas; safe outdoor fun, physical challenge, mental health & wellbeing, social and emotional growth. Students will also learn skills in a range of new outdoor activities.


    What should my child bring on camp?

    We'll send you a comprehensive packing list to get your son or daughter excited about getting out on camp.


    What other programmes are available?

    This year Insight Adventures is running summer camp programmes in three locations around China. Scan the QR code below or click the "More Events" button at the top of the page.


    Can parents come too?
    Although we're sure you'd have a great time, our programmes are all about getting your kids learning, growing and expressing themselves with other students their own age. So all of our programmes are 100% parent free zones.
