Our team of instructors are central to our youth development movement and the Instructor Development Programme (IDP) is the framework that guides their growth and development. Our IDPframework is aligned to the National Youth Achievement Award (NYAA). By going through the IDP, instructors will also complete the necessary requirements for them to achieve the NYAA Gold.
In order for CAMP CHALLENGE to reach out to and positively impact as many youths as we possibly can, we need to have a team of well-developed instructors.
As illustrated by this picture of two rotating gears, when the smaller gear is well-oiled and turning efficiently, it will lead to the bigger gear rotating even more, causing a larger positive impact on our participants!

Alpha Challenge Scholarship

With effect from 1st May 2017, CAMP CHALLENGE has introduced a non-compete policy for associate instructors. Instructors in CAMP CHALLENGEwill undergo intensive training, which requires heavy investments of time and money. This policy is to ensure that our investments are not lost and to give us the assurance to continue to invest in the development of our instructors.
