Could your kids survive the great outdoors on their own? Teach them valuable survival skills with camps & classes at Outdoor School Singapore
We get our fair share of exposure to western TV here in Singapore – don’t camping episodes always look so fun? If your kids are particularly drawn to activities like building a tent, climbing trees or even wading through ‘swamps’, they actually can thanks to Outdoor School Singapore (OSS)!
OSS believes that much learning actually takes place outside the four walls of a classroom. They’re known for hosting day adventures and camps for children 4 to 9 years old for various schools, allowing kids to discover nature parks and reserves in Singapore. In turn, kids develop their ecological awareness, empathy and intelligence, in order to become risk-takers and responsible, resilient citizens.
What Kids Learn at Outdoor School Singapore
OSS works with schools, parents and organisations to provide a multi-sensory experience outside of the classroom, surrounded by nature. Through an enjoyable, creative and adventurous learning journey, kids can grow as confident and responsible global citizens who value and appreciate our natural environment.
Their curriculum is a combination of Outdoor Adventure (survival skills) and Outdoor Learning (connect with nature). Through activities, children hone important survival skills, learn about Singapore’s vibrant flora and fauna (and the importance of environmental conservation), and get active with experiences like supervised climbing activities and building their own shelter.
OSS Holiday Camps & Enrichment Activities
Summer 2020 will see the exciting introduction of OSS’s new Survival Series, in which kiddos will learn the vitals skills required to survive in the wild (or any situation where they’re faced with limited resources). Skills covered include knot tying, map reading and first aid, which are all applicable not just in the outdoors, but also in their daily lives! Children will also have the chance to learn about animals, flora and fauna through exciting first-hand experiences at Singapore’s fabulous nature reserves and parks. This weekly enrichment programme will encompass both online learning and on-site outdoor activities.
Provided the current situation improves and measures will be eased, the next camp will resume from 22 – 26 July! Focusing on map reading in nature as well as learning about mangroves in Singapore, the programme will take place at Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve so kids can really immerse themselves in the environment. Mamas and dads will also be happy to know that meals and transport are usually provided for day adventures and camps.
