anyone send their kids to church based holiday camp? those 3 days 2 nights kind?

came across some churches that organize such camps, fee around $20 only. the idea is to let kids enjoy their hoiday, build up their independence, confidence, etc.

yes we do that every year

if parents who are non-Christian but are open about it, no harm, but bear in mind there will be teachings on commitment to God, community service, bible study, etc

think most children are pampered in SG. But some are emotionally stronger while others not.

As for your child, as long as u feel he can cope with the camp and comfortable with the arrangement, then why not? The only concern which I feel may happen is that he cannot cope (maybe too young and too sticky) and then create problem for the organisers of the camp...donch forget, they have tens of kids to take care of.
