Our Virtual Camp runs for one week in the summer (or any given week if booked privately).
We will meet you at “the airport” to start this experience. We use fun and engaging online platforms to simulate “metaverse-style” campuses and environments to make you feel away from home. We want you to have the experience of learning, exercising, and visiting Vancouver as if you were in Canada.
THE WELLNESS LAB
Healing and transformation can only happen when we bring the mind, body and spirit together. The Urban Camp created THE WELLNESS LAB, a program designed to provide you with the latest techniques in meditation, breath therapy, laugh therapy, fitness and overall well-being habits so that you can achieve optimum health and wellness.
This wellness program takes place every morning in a safe and caring environment where everyone can feel understood, seen and heard. Our body remembers what our mind can’t, so let’s relax, laugh, breathe and Ommm together. We are all a work in progress. Let’s make sure we create a better version of ourselves daily.
Our Morning Routine will activate the body and mind. Because we believe that a healthy mind and body are the foundations for a successful life!
Our entrepreneurship program, Littlepreneurs, is designed to start our Urban Campers in the world of “big ideas”. The program starts with a Superpowers discovery workshop which sets the tone for the week ahead.
We teach our Urban Campers How to Launch a Startup with $20.
We also teach them the essential tools to create a brand and how to use digital platforms and apps for advertising their products or services.
Since many brilliant ideas never see the light of day due to lack of funding, we will take Urban Campers on a little “camping trip” to teach them the art of storytelling and pitching. We will teach them how to attract investments to turn their project into attractive investments. Through tips and practice, they will gain enough confidence to deliver a pitch so that no one will want to turn it down.
In this program, expect to collaborate with other Urban Campers on fun, modern and creative projects!
This program is designed to encourage our Urban Campers to grow and cultivate their entrepreneurial mindset while being introduced to the inescapable world of technology.
Since no entrepreneur can survive without modern technology, we take our Urban Campers on a journey to learn some interesting digital and technical skills and to introduce them to different tools that are readily available for use. This program is part of The Tech hub, which includes topics such as:
- VR Coding + Other Realities
- NFTs + Digital Art
- Video Producing, Filming & Editing
FUN ACTIVITIES + VIRTUAL TOURISM
During this one- week camp, Urban Campers will also experience some fun activities such as:
- TieDye workshop
- The Urban Parkour
- Video Games Talk
- Visit to iconic sites in and around Vancouver
- Intro to Chess
- Farewell Party
AGE / LEVEL
10 – 16 years old
Who we work with
At The Urban Camp, we work with professionals who are experts in their field/industry. Most importantly, they are active and enthusiastic individuals who are passionate about sharing their knowledge, wisdom, and expertise.
We are also happy to introduce you to some of the unique local businesses that we partner with:
Let’s take EVIVE (a smoothie company) and Straws N’ Stuff as examples. Both are Canadian companies that we introduce during the Wellness Lab. We use their stories and mission to educate our Urban Campers on the power of creating a product that answers people’s needs. The best part? Urban Campers will be able to try their products!
We’re always looking for new partners that share our values, so we expect the list of local businesses we collaborate with to continue to grow!
