Discovery Vacation Camp

Postby ChiefKiasu » Mon Sep 03, 2007 4:09 pm

My P2 boy told me that he dreads long vacations because he is by himself at home most days and has no friends to play with. So I had to keep a look out for holiday camps to keep him occupied.

For the recent June holidays, I found out about the Discovery Vacation Camps http://www.discovery-camp.com/ which turn out to be value for money. DVC has a number of 5-full-day programmes that they operate in 3 primary school campuses: Raffles Girls, Ai Tong and Tao Nan. The cost is reasonable, under S$350, given that they provide meals, drawing materials, T-shirt and bag, and even transport for the 2 excursions in each programme. It's pretty fuss-free... just bring your kid to the campus by 8:45am and pick them up at 5pm. They also provide transport to MRT stations.

The programmes are highly creative, and according to my son, quite educational and fun. The only thing he disliked was that it rained on both his excursions and he got his shoes all wet.

Probably will do so too. My son enjoyed it the first time round.

My dd went last year in June and she enjoyed it alot. She came back asking me questions and was tickled when I didn't know them (I pretended). She seems to remember what was taught even now.

We cld form a group to get the 10% discount. We just need to put a group name down.

At first i thought of sending my girl to the DVC but decided to sign her up for the 2 Days Bird Quest Camp at Jurong Bird Park instead as she got so excited after going through the itinerary!

Second week i am planning to sign her up for a Chinese Camp so will not being sending her to the DVC!

Thanks guppy for the suggestion.

I am signing my son up for the camp in June. As long as there are 5 kids in this group, we will get the 10% discount.

You can register at the website and there is a question in the reg form that'll ask you for the group name.

update: we hv more than 5 already. pm me if you need more info.

Thanks!

Great, Others on this site can also use the group name "Albatross" to get the 10% discount.

Very good, go for it.
I feel it's money well spent.
Both my DS1 and DD2 enjoyed themselves and they went for it for 3 consecutive years.
I feel that it gave them a good foundation in science.
