CNY Earth Immersion Overnight Camp
A deep dive experience where the girls will apply the Earth skills they have learned to a lived experience where we wild camp overnight, creating our shelters, cooking over the fire, and connecting with the Wild Earth Wisdom
Time & Location

Hong Kong Island, Hong Kong Island, Hong Kong
About the Event
This immersive experience is designed for girls who have already participated in kembali's Gaia Girls or Daughters of the Earth programmes.
(We feel it would be suitable for girls 10 - 13yrs. However, if your daughter falls just outside of that age bracket and is itching to join us, please get in touch to discuss - firstname.lastname@example.org)
We offer an experience in which they may practice and deepen their Earth Skills in a way where they can practically apply what they have learned and enter a relationship with the Natural World that they will be able to carry with them for their whole lives.
W H Y?
The girls will be co-creating their own culture, allowing their own intrinsic curiosity, interests and passions determine the experience they wish to have. Allowing the diversity of the group and skill sets each individual has to shine and be celebrated for what they each bring.
The bonds they create on this experience will extend from more than just the human connections they make, but to the mountains, rivers, forests and oceans, creating a lasting sense of belonging no matter where they find themselves on this planet.
The girls will be guided to a wild camping space nearby Mui Wo, Lantau island.
The commitment would be to join the 4-day immersion which will be structured in the following way:
DAY 1 Mon 15th Feb (9-2pm)
Re-invigorating Earth Skills and adventuring
DAY 2 Tues 16th Feb (9-2pm)

Terms & Conditions:
No refunds or replacement days can be offered if the girls are unable to join one or more of the dates. The intention is for the girls to create their own 'tribe' and family feeling so they embark on the week's adventures together.
The programme will be anchored by 2 female guides, supporting your daughters the whole way.
In the event our gathering needs to be postponed, alternative date suggestions will be offered to the tribe for rescheduling.
