The overall goal of the 2-week Intensive English program is to help campers improve their confidence and proficiency in English. The language skills the children develop at camp will help to bring them up to speed with their international peers and properly prepare them for their studies. The benefits of Intensive English camp span far beyond the classroom: campers will be able to open more doors, make new relationships and ultimately make the world feel like a much smaller place!
This program is run by Stamford American International School's top class EAL (English as a Second Language) teachers. Their team is comprised of highly qualified staff, certified to teach English language learners in an environment with low teacher/child ratios not to exceed 1 teacher to 12 campers. Children will have access to class instruction at an appropriate grade level to set them up for effective progression.
Please note that Intensive English is a 2-week course so you will be enrolling your child for both back-to-back weeks.

Each and every camp programme will have its own relevant safe management measures to adhere to. All camps are run within the framework provided by either the Ministry of Health (MOH), Ministry of Education (MOE), SportSG or the Singapore Tourism Board.
In addition to this, Camp Asia works closely with the operations teams at our host venue, Stamford American Int’l School, to maintain the integrity of the measures that the school uses during term time.
Due to COVID-19 requirements, drop-off timings will be staggered between 8.45am and 9am. Your allocated drop-off time will be sent to you in our personalised ‘Parent Information Email’ (sent five days prior to camp).
Our pre-camp morning activities are on hold for the time-being, and children will be brought straight to their venue/classroom after signing in.
We have a full-time nurse on site for every camp week operating from the schools’ health centres. Our nurses are there to administer medication, first aid and support with all COVID-19 reporting, as needed. The nurse is available Monday morning to collect any medications and speak to parents before camp starts. Our Camp Asia team are all first-aid trained.
Healthy Lunch and snacks (cooked fresh daily) are included in the cost of your camp. If your child is a vegetarian, does not or cannot eat beef, pork, seafood, dairy or eggs or has other dietary needs, simply tell us beforehand in your child’s details online. Please also note that Camp Asia has a nut-minimisation policy. As part of COVID-19 Safe Management measures - children will eat in small, fixed groups and we will take guidance from the Singapore Tourism Board (STB) and Ministry of Health (MOH) for anything related to F&B.
We offer a highly convenient, safe, secure and sociable bus service to and from camp, calling at a stop near your home. In line with COVID-19 regulations, buses will be cleaned before and after every journey.
