“Today the outdoors is more important to a young persons development than at any other time in our human history. The potential for a disconnect from our natural environment, from our peers and sadly from ourselves has accelerated as many young people grow up living in artificial climate controlled habitats. Tablet Screened adventure’s are no substitute for the real consequences of our physical actions when paddling a real river, climbing a real rock, and partaking in a real challenge, and that equals a real learning! - Wade Campbell - MD Borderlands Sri Lanka

Our Junior School Programs are designed for young students in school groups. Borderlands provides a soft entry into the world of outdoor living and adventure activities. For many students, this will be their first time in a tent and often the first time away from their parents. We take students out of their comfort zones in a safe, controlled environment. Our challenging activities keep students busy and encourage trust and mutual assistance, but at all times we ensure the kids feel safe and secure being away from home.

Students reside in our riverfront tents at our Kithulgala Riverside Camp. Our tents sleep between three to seven students each. Students will be provided basic camping provisions – a roll mat, pillow and blanket. We have been conducting our Junior School Programs for over 10  years with the British School in Colombo. With Borderlands as a home away from away, students will have a blast, and for most it is the highlight of the academic year.
