We have compiled a list of family-friendly edutainment, from virtual camps and workshops to digital events and activities that you can enjoy with your children this school holiday!
Holidays are just not the same anymore, or at least, it isn’t the same this year. Going across the border for a little shopping and maybe an escape challenge is not possible, let alone flying across countries for a vacation.
Thankfully you won’t be stuck going on virtual tours this September holiday (not that that isn’t an option) for there is quite a lot happening this month! Take your pick of virtual camp or on-site class for an edutaining September holiday with your little ones!
Virtual and on-site holiday camps to help your kids cultivate new skills and self-confidence!
