Welcome to Hill End Enterprise Camp , the first of a kind run for Oxford and Cherewell
Valley College Business and Enterprise students.
Thursday: Students did not know what to expect. from arrival to departure they were
into something completely different. The “time warp” accommodation and work area
heated with a wood burner, to a unique catering experience, this was not norn for
life in business..........
The brief:: To experience themed enterprise activities and then produce a marketing
and business proposal for Hillend Enterprise Camps, in other words marketing the
experience they were going through!
Participants worked late into the night on solar powered vehicles - Craft enterprise
- Gravity Racers - Electric Bikes.
A hive of activity and then to a spectacular feast of a spit roasted pig cooked over
an open fire and turned by a 1929 engine. This and many other features of the camp
were recognised as added value.
Friday. Teams prepare to present to our judging panel, keeping ideas to them selves
until it was time to make the pitch. Relocating to the barn to be the first students
starting on the knock out rounds for the Oxford Enterprise Award. Dressed to impress
each team presented and faced searching questions by our panel. After lunch time
deliberations, the winning team was announced to go forwards to the final round.
In June 2013.
