During Spring we offer many age-specific courses and clubs, running through our 2-week program. The underlying theme of team spirit and teamwork is further strengthened through the after-dinner activities at the campus.

Dynamic and interactive workshops & activities enable our students to develop a toolbox of teamwork skills that will help them to build mature lasting relationships with friends and colleagues, create imaginative and complex solutions to problems and focus on their Emotional Intelligence using theories and practices from a range of academic scholars in the field of experiential learning.

The Personal Development Program aims to equip our campers to develop a deeper understanding of themselves and to apply that knowledge when leading others and preparing for the world of work. Managing their expectations, motivations and reflection processes can enable students to further understand the concept of success. It is one thing to learn how to become an organised, calm or articulate individual, but understanding the fundamental concepts affecting your experience will allow you to lead others to achieve more.

Les Elfes Spring Camp is focused on providing a holistic learning experience to our campers through its Out-Door and Personality Development Programs during the two weeks.
