Bamboo U at Green Camp

Bamboo Immersion at Bamboo U

I have just come back from the Bamboo U course at Green Camp and feel it is one of the best things I have ever done in my life. My vision for the future has been cleaned and I won’t be looking back. Connecting with such a wonderful crew of people from all over the world with so much passion for bamboo, has lit a fire in my heart that is burning the trash of the past and opening doors I had never imagined were there. Immense gratitude to the organizers and everyone who came. – Donnie, Australia Many people come to visit Green School, GreenCamp, Bambu Indah and Green Village and they are always simply in awe of the bamboo structures around us.

Coconut sugar from Green Camp

Coconut tales

Coconut trees are famous for making coconuts. I was once hit by a coconut, almost died. Around Bali, in all of the hotels and all the public spaces, they cut the flowers off, which means the coconuts never get born. You get the best oil in the world from coconuts. We have an amazing gardener at Green School and he did two things. If you look up and around at coconut trees around you, you’ll see a lot of damage. This is because of the rhinoceros beetle. It goes into the coconut and eats down into the heart of the leaf. The coconut trees die when their leaves are gone. At Green Camp, the gardeners put together a bio-agent to fight it. In the test trees, they’ve sprayed it twice and the trees are starting to come back. The other thing happening at Green Camp is the coconut sugar. It’s amazing- you’ve got to try it. -John A few words from Johannes, a member of the Green Camp and Green School landscape team: We had …

Green Supercamp

Green SuperCamp: The most powerful learning experience available

When my kids came home from SuperCamp, I was totally astounded at the things they had learned and the growth that had happened in a short residential camp. In my view, it’s the most powerful learning experience available. My daughter, Chiara, came home and said, “If you’re early you’re on time, if you are on time, you’re late, and if you’re late, you’re left behind again.” Can you imagine learning that at 11 years old? Being early takes all the stress out of all your movements. If you screw up you’re still on time, if you have a few minutes to wait, you do something else. Many people never learn that. And that was just one tiny thing of a plethora of information and experiences they had. The 7 day non-stop activities, is the place where students experience a shift in learning through academic enrichment classes, exhilarating outdoor challenges, personal growth and character building exercises.
