Kenya is a country of diverse landscapes and magnificent wildlife. This January, Grade 7 and 8 students have the opportunity to explore this spectacular country through service work and a plethora of unique experiences. On this adventure, students will become part of a service community that has been working on local projects for over 17 years. Students will continue the work started by other schools through developing parts of the rural community around the camp. 

Aside from the three days of service as action projects that they will take part in, students will have the opportunity to visit the Maasai tribe and learn more about their cultures and traditions. Students will also learn local skills, some of the local language, Swahili, and make crafts with a local women’s empowerment group. While in the lush greenery, students will embark on a trek up Marunga Hill where they will learn basic survival skills, such as making a fire and traditional archery and have lunch in a cave! No trip to Kenya would be complete without going on a safari! Students will have the chance to see elephants, giraffes, zebras, and maybe even a lion at East Tsavo National Park. 

At the end of each day, students will have a chance to connect more with their classmates over some exciting activities, delicious dinners, and a campfire or two. What a great way to make memories while helping a worthwhile and sustainable cause!

MASTERING THE SLOPES

We make sure everyone enjoys themselves - whatever their skill level. Throughout the week, the ISL Qatar students will enjoy up to five hours a day of tuition with amazing instructors from the École Suisse de Ski. The beginner lessons will focus on the fundamentals of skiing and snowboarding, while those requiring more advanced lessons can work on fine-tuning different disciplines such as racing, bumps and off-piste.

After each action-packed day on the mountain the fun will continue with an amazing programme of après ski and evening activities, which could include pizza night, climbing, torch lit walks, snowshoeing, sledging, ice skating, and hot chocolate & movie nights.

Through this field trip, we will also focus on team building skills, physical and emotional challenges, and cultural experiences.

SO, WHY SHOULD I GO SKIING?

It’s so much fun…

It’s great exercise…

For the stunning scenery…

To enjoy the peaceful ambience on the slopes and in the mountains…

For clean and fresh air…
