This is our second science holiday camp with Cognitive Whizz this June hols. We returned because the kids (6 and 7 years old) had so much fun during the first camp they tried in Dec and I was impressed they remembered all they have learned in the last camp. The teachers used examples that the kids can relate to in every day life and made the concepts easy for kids to understand. I especially liked that there was a daily debrief on what the kids did and learned for the day for parents at the end of every session. On top of that, Denise also makes sure that she updates all parents (since many may not be able to attend the debrief) via whatsapp on the concepts including photos. This helps parents to understand the concepts taught and reinforce learning with the kids at home.
My two kids (aged 5 and 7) joined the holiday program "A Science Escapade!" and I cannot rave enough about how much they enjoyed the camp! They came home with practical applications of the concepts learnt, and every evening us parents received a detailed summary of what happened at camp. It was a great way to keep the parents informed and offered conversation opportunities with my kids about what they had fun with at camp! At camp, the kids had a chance to keep a Science log and my 5yo came home very excitedly showing me how her predictions matched the outcome of her experiment! At the end of the 5-day camp, Denise who runs the camp, furnished us with a thorough report on the day-to-day happenings and the scientific concepts covered. You can tell that this camp has been crafted with care and thought for the children's experiences, and it pays off as my kids would randomly bring up the topics and things they learnt when they see examples of them in daily life. I highly recommend this camp and would not think twice to sign my children up again and again!
