WINTER CAMPS AND AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAMS YIELD BETTER RESULTS.
Winter is the season when students are known to be free from all the stress caused by school and the long semester they had and plan their winter holidays in many ways. During this time the parents search ways to utilize those winter days to make their children physically more active and engage in many family activities, hence those times can be utilized to revise the work of the last semester and solve challenges that were faced by students, that is why Cefups Academy has winter camps and after-school programs to help students catch up and raise the challenges they faced during the beginning of the semester since they had limited time span in class

Most importantly the winter camps and the after school programs are there to help students in most various aspects of their learning time with Cefups Academy, the following areas are the ones that are being promoted during winter classes and after school programs
Team Building/ Team Work
On a daily basis, both after school programs and winter camps give training based on promoting team work and problem-solving techniques. When a student does not seem to do what they are asked and work as per their wish means it implies they are trying to act as a leader by working alone, therefore, the winter camps are there to assist students both the average and the outstanding ones to work much harder on their own be able to solve problems and to be able to work as a team.
Students gain more confidence when given a chance to assist others then try to solve the problems on their own and that will eventually increase their self-confidence to take attempt of which this strategy only is much implemented on winter classes where teachers are not in a hurry to finish the module or are given a normal learning period winter camps help in that regard because everyone is fresh and there’s also an ample time to attend to every student’s challenges.
Winning Spirit (Champion)
Every day is a challenge in winter camps, students are exposed to new activities and challenges and also look at what they couldn’t do better at the beginning of the year (revision) where they try hard enough to solve the problems and learn new ways of solving previous challenges with a better understanding, this enhances their critical learning skills and motivates them to face any task with confidence and courage. Every student may not succeed, but they try to taste the flavor of being a champion during winter classes.
The best part is when the students start accepting the challenge with their peers, which actually helps in increasing their self-esteem to a great extent. The after school program and winter classes makes a student more open when they are far from parents. In overall, the camps have a greater impact on increasing a student’s problem encountering skills. This makes them robust and confident to speak in every open forum. The new and revised activities planned by the teachers enable the students to acquire new skills, knowledge and problem-solving techniques.
In school, the students are only familiarised with one way of solving a certain problem or answering a certain question, but in winter camps and after school program activities the students are exposed to many ways of answering questions or solving a certain problem it could be scientifically or mathematically and that enhances their level of understanding.
