BREAK THE 'NORM BOX'
JULY 24 - 28, 2017
THE PURSUIT OF A BRIGHTER FUTURE
At Climax Tours, we like to see ourselves not as a tour company but as guides into the essential and the unknown. That is why our service is in constant pursuit of transforming the child’s mind employing sojourns outside the usual to achieving this.
Developing a child’s cognitive capacity in the 21st century relies hugely on complimentary engagement outside the classroom. With our wealth of experience in the informal education and tourism industry, we hope that together we can serve the children with a unique blend of fun, educative, interactive and groundbreaking ideas.
We are so excited about this summer camp and we look forward to the positive results it will yield in the lives of the children now and in the near future.
