Living In Hong Kong Schools Schools

Summer camp on Hong Kong’s seas!

It’s that time of year, time to start planning for summer camp. Not going home for the holidays? We’ve found a series of amazing summer camps in Hong Kong you are going to love!

This year, The Harbour School (THS) invites students to join them for F.I.S.H. – Fully Immersive Scholar’s Holiday courses – it’s their first-ever term and holiday break program and it’s amazing!

This is no ordinary summer camp, like so many activities at THS it’s an impressive, hands-on learning experience that young scholars will love. F.I.S.H. courses offer deep dives for small groups into new and fascinating topics over school holiday breaks. The courses are hosted by experts from the school’s Centers of Excellence, and are open to any scholar in Hong Kong, even if they are not enrolled at THS.

There are lots of F.I.S.H. summer camps in Hong Kong this year, here are our three favourite experiences:

Summer camp has never looked so amazing!
