We’ve all been there…. when we run out of ideas on how to entertain the children during the long summer break. So here’s a thought – why not pack them off to summer camp to pick up a new bag of tricks, and make friends, the fun way?
For the athlete in the making, Sports Star will help him or her to build up a healthy body through football, swimming and tennis. Whether your child is a rookie in sports or a seasoned whiz, this camp will teach them skills and techniques that will challenge and improve their abilities, as well as build teamwork and sportsmanship.
For the next Gordon Ramsay or Nigella Lawson, there’s Super Chef, where kids can whip up delish food like tapas, pizza, and desserts under the guidance of celebrity chef Emmanuel Stroobant.
If you want your little one to conquer China, then sign him or her up for Mini Mandarin camps. With the use of storytelling, dance, games, art and fun music numbers, it won’t be long before your kiddlywinks come home showing off the new words and phrases they’ve learnt.
But what’s probably the coolest of the lot is the Drama Academy. This year, budding thespians will get to rub shoulders with two British actors from the United Kingdom, who’ll be specially flown in to conduct lessons for two weeks. Headed by theatre veteran Henry Everett, this creative camp will have kids from six to 11 reciting Shakespeare, dabbling in puppetry and having a good laugh in costume. Henry Everett is currently co-staring on the London stage with Ralph Fiennes while actress Morag Cross has a number of television and movie credits to her name.
Camp Asia holds its summer activities at three venues – Stamford American International School, Australian International School and British Club Singapore (the newest venue on the block). With its latest addition, students on different summer breaks won’t miss out on the exciting shenanigans.
Due to popular demand, Camp Asia’s summer camp is now 11 weeks long (from June 1 to August 21), up from eight weeks previously. What’s more, all participants this summer will snag a special SG50 Camp Asia T-shirt, specially made to usher in Singapore’s 50th anniversary.
