In the early 2000’s, outdoor education was relatively unknown in Hong Kong, China and the region. Co-founder Will Huetinck was an international school teacher, and in 2001 began designing and organizing week-long courses for students. He had noticed earlier that most of the programs on offer in Hong Kong had little focus on personal development and were much more recreational. As a result, he created one of the first week-long international school programs in Yangshuo, China, that integrated adventure and community activities with cultural awareness and personal development. During that time Will saw what a life-changing impact a well led course could have on an individual. It was that light bulb moment that led to Dragonfly.
