Boubyan Bank Summer Camp 2015
We teamed up with Boubyan Bank to organise an action packed summer camp of exciting activities. We selected two of the common core values, that we share with Boubyan Bank, which are Integrity and Teamwork, and designed challenges that would allow the students to experience these values first hand.
The first day of the camp started with an interactive workshop. The meaning of integrity was discussed, and the participants were tested on how to always stick to their values. They were then divided into teams of two; where one participant guided his/her blindfolded partner through an obstacle course. The day was concluded with the students writing down on mirrors what integrity meant to them, after which they reflected and discussed their own values with the group.
The second day was filled with fun, creativity and teamwork, which started off with the teams solving riddles. The participants learned and experienced the values of teamwork firsthand, as they created and presented their own PosiTV show, starting with Positive News, Positive Weather, a TV commercial for Boubyan Bank and an interview brimming with positive solutions. They leaned on each other for support to create their own television channel starting from scripts, logo & name and enacted the positive news reports, interviews, TV commercials and weather amazingly well.
Boubyan Bank’s Summer Camp ended on a fantastic note, as all the participants came back for two final days of fun, frolic and lots of positivity. The first day of the finale was full of adventure, as the participants went on conquests as a team. Each conquest was inspired by Alnowair’s famous tree of positivity and the entire campus at GUST was in for a surprise invasion by energetic teenagers, who handed out gifts and expressed their gratitude to unsuspecting employees. The day ended on an amazing note as the students, raced around the campus, solved crimes, untied knots and hopped around with joy.
The participants spent a charged up final day of the camp, playing a human board game, where they solved puzzles and riddles, tested their general knowledge, did various physical activities and answered questions about Alnowair& Boubyan Bank all the while climbing up the board. The teens rolled the dice and enjoyed the ups and downs of the game sportingly.
We are very grateful to have contributed to Boubyan Banks annual summer camp and confess that along with the participants we too had a wonderful time. And as the entire month of summer camps ended on a very exciting note, we look forward to a crazier, wackier and even more exciting camp next year.
