OrcaNation’s schools’ programme has a mission: to change the way children think about oceans and the planet through education. We specialise in assisting teachers in organising unforgettable land and water-based adventures. Over the past 24 months, we have organised 30 school camps, inspired 3,000 students with our workshops and keynote speeches and certified more than 1,000 scuba divers.
Land Based School Camps
OrcaNation’s broad range of environmental, cultural and educational experiences are crafted for school groups of all ages. Our land-based school camps range from jungle trekking, mangrove exploration, and beach cleanups to workshops focused on plastic awareness, reef and marine conservation and sustainability.
Water Based School Camps
OrcaNation’s ocean-based school adventures include scuba diving programmes such as PADI's action-packed Seal Team and Bubblemaker suitable for children as young as 8-years of age. Kayaking, guided snorkelling, SUP paddleboarding, coasteering and raft building are additional activities that can be tailored around the needs of the school, children and their teachers. Our highly-rated camps follow OrcaNation’s renowned Health, Safety, Environmental and Quality standards.
OrcaNation Founder, Jeroen van de Waal, is a regular presenter at international schools and universities throughout South East Asia. Jeroen’s inspiring, motivating and thought-provoking talks typically revolve around education and career choices, and how to live a life of balance while creating more positive footprints.
At OrcaNation, we create multiple school programmes for children from 8-18 years of age. Programmes and individual modules teach and engage children on all aspects of important topics ranging from our oceans' ecosystem, marine conservation and environmental issues to the impact of humans on our oceans and planet.
