US – A Place Beyond offers a safe yet social space for students attending university during the pandemic.
With university experiences disrupted as a result of the pandemic, the start-up is utilising disused summer camp locations to offer students an alternative to remote learning at home. Set up in large, nature-filled areas that offer a lesser risk of contracting Covid-19, the sites prioritise both the mental and physical health of students.
Recognising the need to provide a personalised curriculum, the spaces include activities such as cooking, photography, finance workshops and outdoor recreation such as kayaking and rock climbing. ‘We provide academic support, professional mentorship, and optional workshops that cultivate social, emotional, and real life skills. And we do it in some of the most beautiful places on earth,' explains A Place Beyond.
With many facing another semester of remote learning, students are seeking creative ways to ensure that they still get the memorable college experience they planned for. For more on how brands can cater to the student demographic, read our Luxury Student Market.
