"HAVE, U Can" Joint-university Camp

The "HAVE, U Can" Joint-university Camp was successfully held on 4-8 June 2018.  It is one of the activities under the cross-institutional project on "Student Learning in Generic Competencies" funded by the University Grants Committee.  This Centre, together with the Faculty of Business Administration and the Faculty of Engineering, represents CUHK to work with The University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong Baptist University, Lingnan University, The Education University of Hong Kong and The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology to plan and implement the camp.  An attendance of 212 students from the six collaborating universities was recorded, of which 30 had come from CUHK serving as either mentors or participants.

During the camp, students took part in a wide variety of challenging activities, e.g.  You Draw · I Guess, Amazing Race, Knots of Love, Hong Kong's Got Talent and Spaghetti Bridge, to enhance their critical thinking, creativity, teamwork, communication skills and self-confidence.  The camp also offered participants a taste of traditional hall life and high table dinner experience.

Another highlight is the Innovation and Entrepreneurship Competition held alongside the camp.  Students were required to formulate a business plan and innovative solutions towards the challenges encountered by the adolescents in Hong Kong, and then present their proposals on the last day of the camp.  Professionals from business, academic and social service sectors were invited to serve as advisors and adjudicators of the competition.  They were all impressed by the inspiring ideas of the students, e.g. a mobile app to assist adolescents in cultivating healthy lifestyle, a company to provide services for students to study overseas on exchange.

This 5-day-and-4-night camp was well-concluded by a closing ceremony held on 8 June.  The organisers, trainers, mentors and participants have undergone a memorable and rewarding week.
