Summer holidays are meant to be about relaxing with the family, and saying sayonara to the bleary eyed wake ups that happen on rushed school mornings. For mamas with young ones on extended school holidays however, the summer months can really drag on unless you’ve got a plan in place! And with holiday saviours like Village Camps open for enrolment now… it’s the perfect chance to sign your kiddos up for a summer of fun and friendships!
Designed to recreate the summer camp experience of yesteryear, Village Camps offers mini adventurers 4 to 13 years an exciting and engaging all day (9am to 4pm) multi-activity summer programme, where qualified camp counsellors guide kiddies through different activities, providing advice and support along the way. Kids will benefit from over 40 years of camping experience, as they build self-confidence, improve their physical ability, and develop interpersonal skills – all while having a ton of fun!
Run over four weeks from 23 June to 18 July 2014, all of the camps programmes are matched to the skills of each age group (children are grouped by individual or adjacent age groups, depending on final numbers) and can include a range of sport and creative activities, such as basketball, swimming, Frisbee, drama, arts, crafts and dance. Classes are changed daily to keep kids interested (although fave activities are often repeated!), so whether you want your little ones to go along for one week or all four, the choice is yours mama.
Held at the state-of-the-art UWCSEA East Campus at Tampines, Village Camps uses the school’s facilities to conduct their camps, with access to indoor gyms, dance studios, purpose built art rooms, a full-size soccer field and an Olympic length swimming pool. There’s really little doubt that your munchkins will be happily exhausted by the end of each day here!
