Starting with only basic supplies and materials, students must compete in teams to create the best 'Civilisation' in a forest over 2-5 days!

 

Full description

 

In Imagine’s Civilisation Game, the students are challenged to build up their own civilisation from scratch in a beautiful riverside forest setting in Huairou.

 

The group will first be given a brief training course in various useful skills for their challenges, such as how to use tools safely, build a shelter, build a raft, make a fire and understand the natural elements, plants, and wildlife around them.

 

After this training, they will be taken to an empty forest space, with basic tools and materials, and the Civilisation Game will begin.

 

 

After a few days, they will have built their own structures, found ways to cook food, and organised themselves into effective teams with structures of governance, laws, and other features of a modern society.

 

 

They may even trade and negotiate with other teams, for mutual prosperity across the civilisation. This will be concluded with a discussion of which systems and approaches were most effective, and what they have learned from this experience.

 

 

The game covers a broad range of skills and topics:

 

Teamwork

Law and order

Governance systems

Efficiency and effectiveness

Negotiations

Trade

Economic principals

Bushcraft and survival skills

Wildlife knowledge

Leadership

Social skills

 

All these while having fun and making close new friendships!

 

 

Location and group sizes

Possible in either Huairou or Miyun, between April-September, for groups of 10-60, aged 8-60.
