The Students Staffs:
Once upon a colorful night in the English Camp, Huahin 2019, students get the chance to get up in their free colorful fashion style and each grade levels get the chance to show off their dancing skills and kinesthetic ability.
Talking of colorful fashion, let’s play as fashion police. What did the students wear during the colorful night? Oh, some are dressed in unicorn and cute colorful pajamas (the Korean style), others did have glitter faces and neon headbands. Well, we can also see some wearing the colorful stripes while others wore shirts with colorful “onomatopeias”. Meanwhile, some boys did wear the hippie yet cool and colorful style of outfits. Well done guys, you put your colorful outfits nicely.
Wait! Let us not forget the NMK teachers who were assisting the students too. Looks like all are having a colorful and fun night both the teachers and students!
Outdoor Games: Grouped in teams, students get the opportunity to roam around the camp to look for clues and unlock the given task, such an interesting game plus you get the chance to enjoy the fine touch of sunshine.
Indoor Games: From games integrated with Science to others related to Art, along with their camp teachers students work together as a team to complete the games.
Rock, Paper, Scissors: A one-on-one game of rock, paper, scissors. Team with the most win will earn more points for the whole team. A game of luck, prediction and full of excitement to the respective players!
Farm Game: Using the camp currency , students get the chance to buy things to make a farm in the concept of King Rama 9, in order to win, team must build the most beautiful, productive and sufficient farm. The points can only be gained after each groups presentation.
Stock Exchange: In this game students will get the chance to buy stocks from Thai Companies, this is indeed the most stimulating game during the camp for students get to decide and predict on which company to invest in order to gain more camp currency.
Well, it would be fair enough to say that the camp games are of mix objectives and appeal to students in varied ways.
This year MEPs 1/2, 2/12, 3/12 and SEP 5/3 head to Navy Phirom Hotel in Huahin. Speaking of Navy Phirom, this place is a beachfront accommodation with a beautiful seaview and a relaxing beach vibe. In fact, most of our students did really take much of their “beach-vibe” moment.
What’s more, our students get to bond with their camp teachers , their juniors and seniors while enjoying and playing on the beach. Some are making sand castles, playing some beach group games and others were just merely enjoying a stroll or run around with their friends on the beach.
The Swimming Pool
Well, the bonus part of having the chance to stay in Navy Phirom is that, it has a superb and functional swimming pool where everyone can truly splash and enjoy.
Talking of food, in this English Camp students food are laid by the garden with the seaview, swimming pool view and even a garden with the tropical coconuts.
Indeed, we can say accommodation and facilities are indeed providing the students a refreshing experience.
