Leadership experience & personal development

All of our activities are purposely designed to deliver learning outcomes in the following areas:

  • Well-being

Students are encouraged and motivated to develop their leadership skills throughout all activities during the week. During fun-filled workshops packed with games, students master the essence of some techniques which they can apply during all camp activities.

All workshops are highly interactive and are given by SILC Academy trainers who have over 12 years of experience working with students from the top schools around the world. All workshops involve dynamic presentations, games, evaluations and personal action plans – no dull classroom moments but learning while doing!

Senior trainers work with students around the clock to provide feedback and support on the learning outcomes during camp activities. Our trainers have extensive experience working with young leaders from all cultures around the world.

Measurable learning outcomes

The SILC Winter Leadership Camp collaborates with world-class organisations and educational groups to teach students relevant 21st Century skills. Students learn from industry leaders and expert trainers, benefiting from a curricular framework developed in partnership with some of the top private schools around the world.

Students take the lead throughout the week, not only developing their leadership ability, but also refining the communication, teamwork and planning skills that help them to succeed both in the classroom, their exams and later life.

Each participant receives our Personal Action Plan at the end of the camp – a tool that has proven to help students with academic performance and provides an ongoing goal structure that can be discussed with parents and teachers.

Students can later apply these 21st Century skills in their daily lives, at school, sports and when applying to university.
