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.
Seasonal Instructors Dragonfly has two high seasons, in Spring and Autumn. Each year, recruitment is more competitive and we enjoy a 50-70% retention rate. Instructors frequently come with a background in outdoor education, but just as many come from teaching, psychology and social welfare backgrounds. Courses take place in dozens of locations, from the beaches and mountains within Hong Kong,
