The BOTS CAMP for Year 2 students is a key signature programme of ACS (Independent). “BOTS” stands for Bonding, Ownership, Teamwork and Self-Awareness. The camp is integral to the school’s holistic approach to education and aims to create a platform to help students:
- develop Bonding and rapport between staff and students,
- inculcate a sense of Ownership, resilience and adaptive skills when faced with challenges,
- develop Teamwork, effective communication and leadership qualities and
- develop independence, Self-awareness and greater confidence.
The camp includes activities like team building, obstacles course, amazing race, games, cooking competition and service-learning to eldercare centres. Throughout the camp, students reflect on and share their learning experiences, build character strengths and work with one another to achieve the camp objectives.
