Shanghai is a great place, but children do get sucked into the influence of TV screens, traffic jams, and endless concrete; sterile little international school bubbles where kids become accustomed to ayis picking things up for them,in a blur of taxis, restaurants, and shopping malls.
Enter Victoria House, a five-day, four-nights summer camp starting on July 12 that gets kids back to nature for a traditional outdoor summer camp experience. From the people behind Wuyuan Skywells in the same area— an idyllic courtyard hotel retreat that we featured right here — comes a traditional summer camp out in the woods for kids.
From the organizers:
After three years of running rural escape summer camps, in 2023 they are launching their biggest and best yet. Over 5 days and 4 nights, accompanied 3-7-year-olds will enjoy stream hiking, bug hunts, 'mud day', making tie-dye clothes, proper camping in tents, releasing sky lanterns, and hiking in the woods.
Details: The summer camps run from July 12 until August 20, geared for 3-7-year-olds. Prices begin at 7,200rmb (for one adult and one kid, room and breakfast included). More information on their website here.
