At Green Camp we strive to offer best practice Learning to Serve experiences for students. Ensuring an appropriate cycle of Service is followed and engagements are reciprocal, including benefits for non profit organisations as well as the campers.
The cycle of Investigation, Preparation, Action, Demonstration and Reflection is outlined in the programming. We believe that balanced and interconnected relationships between human to human, and human to earth is crucial at this point of time. We as educators have a responsibility in life to teach what is truly valuable rather than focus on pure academic achievement. A sense of achievement or success in society is often measured by academic standing, personal wealth and status in society.
In the process of achieving all of this so called ‘successful life’, we are forgetting about our real connections and harmony with each other and the earth. We tend to ignore the impacts of our direct or non-direct actions towards our society and the environment. We tend to only think about ourselves and ignore the wellbeing and the prosperity of others who will inhabit the world after us. We are too focused on ourself and our own well-being.
Service to Earth program focuses on delivering services to Earth, the local community and our students. Our aim is to plant a seed of compassion, kindness and inspiration that will grow and flourish within our students heads and hearts. Aspiring to become responsible, and kind-hearted global citizens who will share their learnings, knowledge and experience to inspire people in their own communities.
