Overview for teachers
Green Camp for Schools workshops are available year-
round for school groups looking to combine practical skills
with creative thinking in an inspirational environment.
The Green School / Green Camp site is the ideal setting in
which to study sustainable design and technology, as it
models innovative, contemporary design using traditional
and environmentally responsible methods.
Every GCS project involves the design and hands-on
construction of products and systems that meet human
needs, created using renewable and/or recycled
materials. Students learn methods & techniques that
improve quality of life, solve problems and enhance
personal leadership skills.
Every project is presented as a challenge with numerous
possible learning outcomes and solutions. Students work
alongside Green Camp mentors, who encourage the
development of ideas and systems that challenge
convention and empower students. The result is the
development of practical and intellectual skills along with
a greater understanding of relevant cultural, socio-
economic and environmental issues.
Gaining confidence in the process, students make new
links; discovering possibilities, finding solutions to problems
and visualising “can do” alternatives.
