CAS Week


Preparing a better future


Why have a CAS Week?

At Equestrian Camp, we recognize the pressure that students are under to complete all that is required of them in the rigorous International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme. We create the opportunity to try something new and challenging in a concentrated time period.


CAS stands for:

• C = Creativity (the arts, learning new skills, creating projects and activities)

• A = Activity (physical activity, breaking a sweat (not just because it’s hot!))

• S = Service (doing something for others that they cannot do for themselves, cannot access or cannot afford)




CAS must…

• be challenging

• be meaningful

• involve personal goal-setting and reflection

• not be repetitive, passive or simple


CAS Week Themes

  • Equine Assisted Therapy: participate in therapy sessions in order to raise social awareness and provide the students with skills, objectives and tasks aiming towards a better understanding of disadvantaged groups.
  • Horse Life Style: Care, Groom, Prepare and Work the horses for several purposes such as sport, therapy, education and tourism.
  • Horseback Riding: a lifetime experience from beginners to advanced riders.


CAS Week General Information:

• Creativity, Activity and Service are an integral part of the Educational Programme and of life at School. It is expected that students will be involved in approximately three to four hours of CAS each day during one week.

• Please note that every effort is made to offer a variety of meaningful CAS activities around the 3 themes, and issues relating to safety and costs are taken into consideration.

• This promises to be an enriching experience for the students and we look forward to seeing them challenge themselves in a variety of settings.
