Looking for fun activities to entertain the kids during the next school break? Why not sign them for one (or more) of the exciting and educational camps at Discovery Camps. You can take your pick from a wide selection of school holiday camps on offer from 19 November to 4 January – there’s something for every child and every interest!
Got little ones who love drawing and painting? They’ll love the Art Studio camp (ages six to eight years) where they’ll get hands-on with different techniques such as painting, printing and pottery. They’ll also explore various mediums such as acrylic paint, watercolours and oil pastels as they create their own art pieces, while learning about famous artists and the history of art at the same time.
Budding actors will enjoy the Actor’s Studio camp (ages four to eight). The four to five-year olds will perform a musical theme run by ABA Theatre Academy at SJI International. Lorna Whiston Schools will guide the older ones (six to eight) as they rehearse and put on a show for parents in the Black Box Theatre. They’ll learn what goes into producing a show (scripting, stage directions, movement and more) and build confidence as they take on the stage.
Little movie buffs will have a blast creating their own short film during the Movie Maker camp (ages six to eight). During the week-long program, kids will be taken on a journey of filmmaking, working in teams to write and produce a stop-motion animated movie using clay, Play Doh and even Lego. They’ll get to build characters, create scenes, take photos and then piece them together using a movie editing tool. No prior skills are required, so all are welcome!
Do your children love English, or are they looking to improve their language skills? The English Explorers camp (three to eight) teaches English using interactive activities, focusing on creative writing, story comprehension, and grammar and vocabulary. Kids can look forward to interesting themes including Winter Wonderland, Awesome Adventures and Let It Snow. During the week, they’ll get to hone their reading, writing, speaking and listening skills, all while having fun.
Speaking of fun, who says mathematics can’t be enjoyable? During the Magic Maths camp (ages six to eight), children learn to problem-solve through interactive games and activities. They’ll learn different important math skills including addition, subtraction, multiplication, fractions, graphing, estimation and story problems.
Get the kids excited with robots and Lego at the Lego Robotics camp(ages six to 12). Let them tinker with the bricks and experiment building their own robots. From brainstorming to building and programming, the activity will give them a glimpse into the world of science, engineering and maths.
Can’t drag your little one away from the computer screen? Let them design their own game at the Code Academy camp (ages six to 12). They’ll be taught the basics of designing and coding and eventually publishing a game.
All in one
Can’t decide which camp to attend, or want to try a taste of everything on offer? Little ones will enjoy a good mix of educational and creative activities during the Multi-Activity camp (ages three to eight). From sports and Zumba to drama and music, they’ll be kept active while having loads of fun.
