ISHCMC WINTER CAMP 2020

Our two-week MINDSET2020 Winter Camp has been designed around two main themes that link together to form a unique project-based learning experience.  Students will interact with the weekly themes through a fun mix of sports, team building, activities, cooking classes, weekly projects and life-skills. The goal of MINDSET2020 Winter Camp is to expose students to unique learning opportunities linked to personal vision and growth mindset.  Our focus in this learning experience is to help children to identify with their individual passions, set goals based on their passions and then take action to achieve their goals.

WEEK 1 (21 – 24 Dec)

BIG IDEAS will e ncourage children to explore what they are really passionate about. By thinking BIG, and thinking without limits, we connect closer to our dreams and closer to what really makes us who we are.

 

How am I unique? What do I love to do? Why am I happy to be me? How am I smart? (IQ vs EQ) I can do anything, so what will I do?

 

Project Focus = Change the World Life Skills Focus = Creativity Open mindedness

WEEK 2 (28 – 31 Dec)

THINK FORWARD will help c hildren to learn that to set and achieve goals, you must apply action and must also unde rstand that these actions connect to time.

 

What are my goals? How can I reach my goals? What do I need to do to achieve my goals?

 

Project Focus = Make it Happen Life Skills Focus = Self belief & Confidence

Confidence | Positivity | Critical Thinking | Growth Mindset | Keys for Success
