Sec 1 Discovery Camp

ACS (Barker Road) Outdoor Experiential Programme

In ACS (Barker Road), we believe in the holistic development of the individual through the school curriculum. Every ACS (Barker Road) student will undergo a progressive three-year Outdoor Experiential Programme from Secondary One to Three which seeks to expose him to outdoor living, encourage independence, teamwork and resilience, and eventually develop his leadership potential. Outdoor Education capitalises on the learning opportunities afforded by an outdoor setting which are not possible in a classroom setting.

In the first year of the ACS (Barker Road) Outdoor Experiential Programme, all Secondary One students will undergo a 3D2N Discovery Camp where they will be exposed to outdoor elements and activities. In Secondary Two, they will do a 4D3N Adventure Camp, as the school seeks to develop their ruggedness through more challenging and demanding outdoor activities and the importance of being a team player in these circumstances. In Secondary Three, they will further develop their 21st Century Skills through our C21@ACS(BR) programme, where they will spend 5-10 days in a selected country of their choice.

The ACS (Barker Road) Outdoor Experiential Programme is compulsory for every ACS (Barker Road) student.
