I honestly can’t rave enough about “A Science Escapade”!
I got to know about “A Science Escapade” (the holiday Science camp) through a friend. She sent her children there in June 2021 and they enjoyed it so much that was the only camp they HAD to attend again the next school holiday.
I sent my kids (5 & 7) to the December 2021 camp and THEY LOVED IT! Compared to the many camps my kids have been to, their level of excitement for this one was way higher. Four months on, they still talk about the camp every now and then and are already looking forward to the next one coming in June!
I love how the camp makes science concepts easy to understand with hands-on activities and experiments for the kids to bring home daily. Best of all is that my kids still remember what they have learnt! In our daily conversations, they occasionally mention things that they have learnt (digestive system, reflection & refraction, conductors of electricity and osmosis, to name a few) and that’s one of the major selling point for me - that my kids retain the knowledge of what they have learnt from the camp.
At the end of each day, Denise will also give a detailed summary of the day’s events, accompanied with lots of photos. I really appreciate this!
I have been recommending this camp to many of my friends! I just hope that there will be slots for my kids when the time comes for registration!
Excellent camp, both my girls really enjoyed it. The content was advanced but it was pitched the right way for the age group. The day was filled with interactive experiments and the teachers focussed on repeating key learning words. The workbook is a great aid for future reference of what was learned (Newton camp does not do this). Denise the organiser also sent out WhatsApp’s each day of pictures and learning points. I also loved how at the end the children were treated to a fun Friday at the end of camp where the children did wall climbing etc. Thanks for taking great care of them.
Both my children found the activities to be highly engaging. In fact, my 8-year-old son has attended the camp in 2019 and again in 2020. You guys are always able to find such interactive and tactile ways to explain scientific concepts to the kids. And not to mention with the element of fun too. I find the daily post programme updates extremely useful. They help to keep parents informed about the content and structure of the day’s programs. Parents can also help to reinforce the concepts the kids at home too. Highly recommended!!
My daughter (9 yrs old) has enjoyed herself very much at the workshops. It was wonderful to see her coming back to share enthusiastically with me, what she had learnt that day. I like the way the topics are being introduced to the children. It is very systematic and explained clearly to children of different ages. She particularly enjoyed the hands-on activities and was able to explain the scientific concepts behind each experiment. "A Science Escapade" provided many opportunities for the child to do experiments and bringing home these experiment sets to continue working with them. She has attended several science camps before but this is the first time I see her so excited about going back for the next day's program. Of course, the highlight was the visit to Adventure HQ, where the team was able to integrate the science concepts learnt with play activities. I would (and have already) recommend this workshop to other parents.
