Breakdancing and Leadership Retreat in Phnom Penh
Our team will keep heading south as we move on to Phnom Penh, Cambodia’s capital. Integral to any journey in Cambodia, we’ll visit the S-21 prison museum and the infamous Killing Fields in order to understand Cambodia’s tragic recent history and contextualize its present challenges and opportunities. This history is absolutely key to understanding where Cambodia is today.
But Phnom Penh is also so much more than just this dark past. We will also make sure to familiarize ourselves with the hip, modern, funky vibe that energizes this booming city!
From there, we’ll hit the beach to run our annual leadership retreat with our beloved partners at Tiny Toones, a hip-hop and breakdancing educational drop-in centre for marginalized youth in Phnom Penh. Much more than that, Tiny Toones has become a positive space for learning Khmer, English, arts, and music production.
These leadership retreats are a reward and treat for the Tiny Toones kids who work tirelessly all year round. It is also an inspiring space for learning, growth, and reflection. Each retreat is planned by the group itself! Team building games, planned workshops and discussions, sand castle competitions, and delicious meals are just some of the things to look forward to. Spontaneous outbursts of breakdancing, rapping, and general musicality are to be expected! This leadership retreat is an event not to be missed. It is cherished by all past groups and looked forward to by everyone at Tiny Toones!
