Sports & Adventure in Phuket, Thailand

Kids' Corner

Marvin loves to collect bugs and things. He has a special container that he can put them in to look at them. He likes to draw them, too, and he always asks lots of questions so that he can find out what they are. I like it when Marvin does this because sometimes I donít know what it is either and we both learn something new. Marvin is very careful though, because some bugs bite and some are very poisonous and they can make you sick. So when he is collecting things he tries not to touch them with his hands. After he has looked at them for a while he also puts them back in the same spot that he found them so that they do not die. Do you like collecting bugs? Write to Marvin and tell him about the things that you have found. Send you letters to:

Sports & Adventure in Phuket, Thailand

Looking for a real holiday? A real break? For challenge? Adventure? Fun & excitement? Then look no further ... Join the Sports & Adventure Camp at Dulwich International College in safe, healthy and beautiful Phuket for the experience of a lifetime! No need to waste your time in endless traffic jams, inhaling foul exhausts or mooching around mind-numbing shopping malls. There IS an alternative!

For four weeks between July 4th and July 31st, 2004, Dulwich International College once again opens its superb campus to boys and girls of all nationalities from around the world aged between 8 and 15 looking for action, challenge, fun, new friends ... and a wonderful holiday experience in the magnificent environment on and around the idyllic island of Phuket.

Quad Bikes- tell me a teenager who would not love to do a tour with that?

The unique Sports & Adventure Camp offers a tremendous mix of team sports (soccer, basketball, volleyball, rugby), individual sports (tennis, badminton, cycling, golf), water sports (sailing, snorkeling, water-skiing, rafting, scuba) and adventure (rock climbing, camping, mountain biking, abseiling) as well as go-karting, paintballing, cable-skiing, elephant rides, barbecues and parties. The adventure excursions include exploration of the beautiful flora and fauna of southern Thailand as well as ample opportunities for swimming, snorkelling, water-skiing, rock climbing and diving.

Thatís fun!

One participant had this to say: ďI knew this was going to be a great adventure and I decided to go for it. Every day was full of fun and excitement and by the time I went to bed I was so tired I fell asleep right away and when I got up I was ready for another busy and exhausting day! One of the most tiring but really interesting activities was sea kayaking in the Andaman Sea. Another weekend we went to Khao Sot National Park. This park was full of natural beauty and there was a raging river where we went tubing; that was like white-water rafting except the raft is only made for one person so you have to depend on yourself. This was great fun and a good adventure. There were not only good things about Khao Sot ... there was no electricity and there were lots of creepy-crawlies in the rain forest. This really added to the adventure of the camp. I also got the chance to water ski as well as cable ski, which was fantastic. I had never done this before and I enjoyed myself very much. We all made great friends and I think this is one of the greatest camps a person could visit.Ē

The Sports & Adventure Camp costs 70,000 bt. for the full four weeks (inclusive of all tuition and coaching, accommodation, trips and excursions, meals, local transport and laundry). The camp is also available in weekly units at a cost of only 18,000 bt. per week.

Those who join the camp will return home refreshed and invigorated with many wonderful memories to see them through the year ahead. Enrolment is limited. Register your children with the college now for the Experience of a Lifetime!
