Digital Story-Telling & Animation (Ages 6-8)

Uses Scratch, Tynker, Blockly or similar block programming platforms. 

In this course, tailored for the younger student, we will use various digital and media technologies to help explore the art of story-telling.  Through various games, challenges and exercises, we will introduce the students to tools that can help unscrew the cork to their pent-up creativity.  Whether they are Block Programming with Scratch, or using Apple's kid-friendly media tools, your child will be coming home each day inspired by the power of their own imagination.

Computer Game Design (Ages 9-12)

Uses Scratch, Swift Playgrounds or similar platforms.

Game Development is a fun, creative approach that naturally encourages children to test their skills, stamina, and focus using unfamiliar technology.  In this course children get to experience what it's like to design an original video game, including the storyline, artwork, and gameplay mechanics.  They then get to challenge each other in a gaming bonanza with their own creations. 

We have ample equipment for everyone, so please do not send your child to camp with a computer or tablet.

Information to note prior to booking:

These details apply to all camps, and on both campuses... 

COVID-19 Safe Management Measures

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 venues, Stamford & the Australian Int’l School, to maintain the integrity of the measures that the schools use during term time.

Dropping Off

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.

Medical

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.

Food

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.

Bus Service

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.
