"A unique experience to connect and learn about nature. Highly recommended if you think the overseas trips are too expensive.” ~ Marcus Chow
“I connected with my tree and learned how to become more in touch with nature, and found peace and tranquility within myself.” ~ Adrian Cheung
“By being away from the standard school life, I'm once again reminded of how pleasant peace and quiet is, and as such I now have an even bigger appreciation for moments where I don't have to work or worry. My favourite part of the week was when a few others and I took the opportunity to swim. The key take aways from Ark Eden were (1) to always appreciate and recognise the environment you’re in and (2) to be respectful of people’s ideas and beliefs.” ~ Theo Lee
