  • Shanghai Changxing Island

    Multiple dates in July & August 2020

    6 day / 5 night programmes on Shanghai's beautiful Changxing Island focusing on discovering the inner self, by challenging students to step out of their comfort zones through a range of fun activities.

  • 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 6 day 5 night camp programme, open to students aged 7 to 17, focusses on developing social skills, communication and teamwork through a range of fun and challenging outdoor activities.


    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 divided into groups according to their age and experience just as they would be on their regular activity or residential weeks organised by school.


    The programme will take place on Changxing Island, located between Chongming Island and Pudong New Area in northern Baoshan District. Just 1.5 hours away from downtown Shanghai and with a huge range of activity options, this sparsely developed island is the perfect location for students who need to get out of the city without leaving Shanghai.

  • 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.

  • Other Camp Programmes

    Be sure to check out our other programmes taking place this summer, including a health & wellbeing camp in Yuyao, Zhejiang province (near Ningbo) as well as a leadership expedition through the grasslands of Inner Mongolia.
