In view of the COVID-19 situation, we would like to provide some information on the precautionary measures we will have in place for all our Holiday Camp programmes.
The precautionary measures we follow are determined by a blend of Singapore's Ministry of Health (MOH), Ministry of Education's (MOE) and Sport Singapore's (SportSG) latest advisories.
We keep the safety of all attendees at the forefront of our planning and decision making.
As per the Sport SG regulations (updated 27 Jan), parents will be required to provide vaccination records for campers (ages 5 & up) attending our holiday camps.
We will be conducting temperature screenings for ALL visitors at the above entrances before anyone accesses the campus. Anyone with a temperature of 37.5°C (and above) will not be permitted to enter the school’s premises. Campers can access the school via multiple screening areas, which will be determined by your choice of camp.
Camp attendees (age 7 and above) must have their TraceTogether tokens with them on campus
All children and staff will be required to check-in and check-out each day at their specific camp venues (classroom or arena)
This will be done by the teachers at each venue. Please ensure your child has their SafeEntry token or IC number for our staff to succesfully manage the SafeEntry process.
All staff and children entering the campus must submit their latest travel and health declaration after booking. This is a mandatory requirement.
All children are expected to come wearing masks (with a couple of spares) and will be expected to keep them on at all times except for 1. Super Soccer which is outdoor and 2. mealtimes. *Updated 22 Nov 2021 at "Transition phase to Covid-19 Resilience"
We encourage parents to avoid entering the campus unless necessary (e.g. to accompany a child below 8 years of age).
At this time essential Parent access will be limited to sign-in and sign-out times.
Parent Cafe will be closed for the time being and there will be no parent showcases on Fridays.
(We love having parents at camp and truly regret that you will miss the Friday showcases at this time. We appreciate your understanding of the measures we need to take)
Campers are required to remain at least 1m apart in class and at mealtimes, all queues (both at the canteen and within the sessions themselves) will be spaced out accordingly as well. In addition to this, we will set up fixed seating and children will be organized into groups of 5 (bubbles) and adhere to fixed seating arrangements through the week. All this will be monitored by Teachers/TAs and Safe Management Ambassadors.
Each individual camp program will follow the most relevant advisories for that given camp. For example, Indoor "Mad World of Science" camp will follow guidelines for Enrichment classes, outdoor "Super Soccer" camp will follow SportSG guidelines etc.
Limiting interactions during break & lunchtimes amongst children in the various activities is another measure we're implementing to reduce the risk of intermingling. Children in classroom-based camps will consume their meals in class with safe-distancing measures in place. Campers in other locations will have their meals in the cafes in staggered sessions and fixed seating with not more than 5 kids per table.
Children will have just as much fun during their break as in our previous camps, the only difference here will be the reduced number of children in any one area.
To ensure best hygiene practices and safer distancing, we will suspend our Merchandise table for the time being.
For those who have ordered Merchandise, it will be delivered to your children in their classroom on the first day. Please direct any questions/exchanges requests to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will address all queries virtually at this time.
To assure our families in these uncertain times - we are offering refunds on all Camps if we are forced to cancel due to new government advisories/restrictions (e.g. school closures) and cannot deliver the camps.
*There will be a $50 transaction fee that will not be reimbursed. If you prefer a Credit Note for use in future seasons, reimbursement in the form of credits will not be subject to an admin/transaction fee so you will receive your full amount back into your account if you choose this option.
Our maintenance and cleaning teams will be conducting a deep clean of the school and school buses as frequently as the MOH guidance requires.
We look forward to welcoming you all to our exciting holiday camps and would like to thank all members of our community for their support as we work tirelessly towards keeping our camp locations a SAFE & HAPPY environment for all!
Here are some questions we often get asked about our response to COVID-19. You may find the answer to your own question here.

A: The multi-ministries taskforce set up by the Singapore Government has implemented an all-of-society, all-of-government approach that has received praise from WHO officials. Singapore has been held up as a good example for other countries. As mentioned by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, COVID-19 will be with us here for some time to come and the multi-ministries taskforce will continue to review their approach and introduce additional precautionary measures to contain the spread of the virus. We can therefore play our part by cooperating and following advisories issued by the Ministry of Health (MOH). Unlike most businesses of our nature, Camp Asia also closely monitors and adheres to advisories from the Ministry of Education (MOE) and the Committee for Private Education (CPE) thanks to being well-positioned amongst our Cognita sister-schools in Singapore.
We believe this is the best and most consistent approach, and trust the Singapore authorities and the decisions they are making in regards to COVID-19.
A: Camp Asia is following all guidelines/advisories as set by the Ministry of Health (MOH). To name a few, we require completed travel declarations & temperature screening for all persons entering the premises, class sizes have been reduced and break & lunch times staggered. Please see our full list of precautionary measures here.
A: Temperature-taking exercises will be conducted daily. If your child’s temperature is 37.5 degrees Celsius or higher, the Camp Nurse will contact you to ask that your child be taken to see a doctor. The Camp nurses, coaches, TAs and Camp Asia team also looks out for other flu-like symptoms such as cough and runny nose and will recommend parents to bring their child to seek further medical assistance.
In the case that a child informs their teacher that he/she is unwell, even though he/she may not be running a fever or showing symptoms, the nurse will reach out to parents. In these cases, we hope children and parents can all play their part and practice social responsibility by seeing a doctor first before coming to camp. Children should return to camp only when they have fully recovered.
A: Yes. If someone connected to camp tests positive, camps will be suspended to carry out disinfection of the camp premises. We will follow all MOH/NEA guidance with regards to cleaning and/or closure - and parents will be informed immediately.
A: Yes, this will be required before your child is permitted to attend camps.
A: Yes, with reference to MOH guidelines, all ‘Level 2’ contacts are to self-isolate and you should inform Camp Asia if a member of your household has been issued a Quarantine Order (QO) or Isolation Order (IO). Your child will also not be able to attend camp if any member of your household is issued either of these.
A:We have adopted all measures as instructed by MOH (and following MOE and CPE measures as set by our sister schools) to minimise risk. We have scaled-down class sizes, and will minimise inter-mingling by keeping groups together during transit and meal times. We already practice staggered break times.
Wipe-down routines in canteens - we will introduce alternate spaced seating positions to ensure greater distances are maintained during lunch and recess.
A: Due to the steep increase to the number of imported cases of COVID-19, we need to step up our protocols in terms of visitors to the school.
We urge Parents and Guardians to limit time on campus to pick up and drop-offs only. Even then, we would discourage any non-essential access to parents/visitors whose children are old enough to sign themselves in/out each day.
Unfortunately, parents will no longer be able to remain on campus, in the parent cafes, during the day, or after camp. We also suggest that parents adopt the social distancing principles when waiting to collect children and not gather in groups. We hope this request is taken within the context of having everyone playing their part to minimize any further risk of community spread. We ask Parents and Guardians to share this information with your domestic helpers who may do the pick up and drop off duties.
There will be no 'parent showcases' at this time.
