Winter Camp Fun!
19 Dec - 13 Jan 2023
Learning Science can be a messy business!
No worries, no fuss. We make sure to bring experiments alive with lots of hands-on activities. Make your Newtonian fluid dance to music, test the limits of pressure in your two-stage rocket balloon, or extract DNA from your squishy fruit. Every day we will explore different scientific concepts, and apply our knowledge to explore the secrets of the natural world!
Get ready for some serious fun in our kid-proof laboratory!
We look at various scientific concepts like pressure, aerodynamics, exothermic reactions, sound waves, electrostatics, magnetism, and fluid mechanics from a critical perspective. We ask why are things the way they are, and use the Scientific Method to get at natural truths. Get your lab coat on, put on a pair of safety goggles, open your Scientist Notebook and get ready to experiment.
"Samantha especially enjoyed doing all those experiments and learnt so much during her science camp – it is now her new favorite subject!"
Jasmine is a passionate and highly qualified Science teacher. She has a Masters in Chemistry, specialising in organic chemistry, and is the perfect instructor for keen young scientists having years of experience teaching Sec. 1, Sec. 2 and Sec. 3 at Raffles Girls School in Singapore
Mr. Gopinath has 7 years science teaching experience. He is a biochemist, mathematician and a science educator specializing in primary and secondary curriculum. Mr. Gopinath believes the best education comes from hands-on investigations, and is always aiming to help children to recognise the science in their everyday lives. He loves what he does, and has successfully led the school Science Club for more than 5 years now.

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.
