Course Description

Designed for secondary 5 (or equivalent) students, this 4-day/3-night summer camp will revolve around a table-top exercise of a major infectious disease outbreak. Campers will get exposed to real-world global health and development (GHD) issues that arose when countries face emergencies and learn about leadership and decision-making in GHD crises. Through multiple simulation workshops, campers will be able to see that outbreaks are not just infections and patients but a complex group of many concerns and perspectives, and be tasked to apply their leadership, diplomacy, negotiation, critical thinking and analytical skills in various disaster response scenarios. The camp will close with a high table dinner in the final evening.
