Throughout the day, water will be available from ‘drink stations’ placed around the resort or at activity sites, students are also encouraged to carry their own water bottle, which can be refilled from any of these points.
The department head and student welfare representative can be taken on a pre visit to the site prior to the finalization of the programs to address any supervisory or safety issues and to discuss program customization and optimization. If a number of teaching staff are involved in developing the curricular content, it is suggested all attend the pre-visit.
As all of our activities are provided in house our program and activities can be customized as to the particular requirements of each student group.
A Wild Planet staff member can also visit the School if required and give a short audio visual presentation to the students regarding what to expect on the residential, this can be fitted into a normal school assembly/lesson. We are also happy, if required, to conduct a presentation/ Q&A session for parents to outline our code of practice and safety procedures.
A full copy of our code of practice along with risk assessments will be provided for the program.
Teaching staff will receive, a packing list for the students and depending on curricular based activities we have, study sheets and general information that can be utilized for preparation of students prior to arrival.

A visit to the local salt farm can be included on the journey home.
NOTE: For this program you can select from the above list. Some activities are dependent on weather and may require changes on the day according to site conditions & dynamic Risk Assessment
The adventure groups will all be encouraged to develop a group identity and work together as a team during the program. The groups can be chosen at random or follow class or house structure. We will liaise with teaching staff on this.
Our challenge-by-choice approach enables each student to achieve their own successful adventure in the context of their own aspirations free from peer or instructors pressure. We have found during adventure activities, the greatest achievements are never in terms of the distance leapt or the height climbed and that in all our adventure activities everyone has a role to play.
This itinerary is a flexible outline and can be tailored to fit the needs of the group or program. Several options are available including the option of an overnight stay in the National park campground "under canvas" This program can also begin directly from Suvanabhumi or Don Muang airport for those visiting from outside Thailand.
