Want your child to learn to be more independent and responsible? Or do you want him or her to gain practical skills like risk assessment and the ability to think on their feet instead of being glued to a screen indoors? At Outdoor School Singapore, kids from 5 to 9 develop life skills and greater resiliency through day adventures and camps held in the great outdoors.
Outdoor School Singapore believes that children are enriched by time spent outdoors. Activities are set in different nature parks around Singapore, allowing children to experience the local biodiversity while practising new-found skills.
Children are encouraged to take the lead. They learn to navigate around the parks, organise themselves and solve fun missions together. They even take responsibility for their own meals and care for each other, all under the watchful eye of trained instructors.
Here are some exciting holiday camps still available at Outdoor School Singapore from June to July.
