Life Skills Camp

Not a holiday trip, is a life skill experience but kids enjoy thoroughly!

PCF Punggol Central and Punggol West had organized the kids “Life Skills Camp” for their K2 students.

DD had participated in the kids "Life Skills Camp", 3 days 2 nights.

We had visited the campfire on the second night, when we arrived at the camp, we saw the kids queuing up to wash their own dishes, we can feel that the kids and teachers were tired but joyful.

DD had returned home although she was exhausted but found it enjoyable, I asked dd whether she want to go again, she replied yes.

Not just plates. Some kids will not carry their own shoes. Too dirty...

Very nice! I remember cooking over a little campfire in my grandmother's garden while she herself was cooking. She gave us some meat to thread and roast. :) I was about the same age as your child now too!
