Holidays camp

School terms keep kids in school and parents sane. Holidays can be boring to kids if they are left alone. Discuss vacation ideas and how to make good use of the free time for both children and adults.

Can somebody reccomend a 1-2 weeks camp for Primary 1 kid during summer holidays (in June). Art or any kind of sport. Preferable location: West.

hello :-)

I asked the same question for the last june school holidays too! Am paying it forward by sharing some of my great finds....but here is the disclaimer... please don't take my entire word for it....cos everyone's experience is different lah...pls also visit the company website and ask them for latest update k...pls double check with your own mummy-friends too

June School Holidays 2011
Some Suggestions...

1) Skate With Us Superheroes Skate Camp

Details: http://skate-with-us.com/swuholidaycamp.html

Children like skating (i don't know why...but it seems like a very popular and practical sport to pick up like swimming) ...Found this camp after reading the article on Motherhood Mag and also the positive feedback by other parents on forum...

Basically, this is a skate camp with a different theme each time. For june, it is a Superheroes theme skate camp for kids and the school specialised in teaching children...

My feedback:
Somehow my children love this a lot, maybe because it really feels like a camp for them. For me, I like the fact that the class size and instructor ratio is good. It like they will make it a point to put 2 staff to attend to 1 group of 6 kids and they always have female and male instructor.
At the camp, the children will learn skating and they will play games, wear costumes related to special themes and pretend-play they are Superheroes

I am also thinking about letting the children attend the Superheroes Skate Camp in June. the camp is for beginners and skaters as the school groups the children according to their skills...

2) Kindergolf Camp
Details: http://www.kindergolf.com/seasia/programs/golf-camp
Golf Camp by kindergolf for children...where they can pick up golf basics in just 1 camp...

My feedback:
This is the most recent one that my children went for. there has been some mixed reviews on Kindergolf it seems but my own experience has been good.

We went for the express camp where it's indoors. I guess we should have gone for the 5 days one. the kids like it, was excited but it was a little short and it is all indoor. But overall the experience has been quite good. they now know more golf terms and were chatting with their daddy on golf haha...DH love golf, my sport is shopping hahaha

3) Bakerzin Kids Baking Workshop
I can't find the exact page on the website any more...so sorry

My feedback: This is a good bonding opportunity for u and your children, if u like baking... i am biased lah cos i like baking myself, so i signed up the children for this. it is good and the kids get to eat their own work...

Some other camps that i am eyeing on this June is the art boot camp, got to do more research first...will share more soon...

do share your findings...i am not shareholders of the above companies and please do your own research and ask other parents for their feedbak..

I'm interested to sign up discovery camp. Anyone else from here? There's a group discount of 10% as long as there's at least 5 person in the group. Any level / any camp can form a group.

Hi

Does anyone knows how is Discovery Camp comparing to Tien Hsia camps? The price difference is quite a bit, so would like to know if DE is very good to command such rates.

Thanks!
