Ready, Set, Go!
The academic offerings of the camp in Language
Arts, Mathematics, Social Studies and Science are
guided by the national curricula of the Ministry of Education, Technological and Vocational Training,
for the various subjects and age groups.
Key concepts, which tend to challenge students, are chosen from the Mathematics and Language Arts syllabi and are introduced or reinforced as each participant’s needs mandate. Through problem-solving and reasoning, NOT drill and practice, participants are supported with a variety of manipulative to promote understanding and mastery of these various concepts.
Additionally, educational tours are selected to augment lesson plans and synchronize with classroom learning.
Enjoy Pure Fun
The recreational offerings of the camp were chosen to promote a complementary balance to the academics; thus fostering the whole child. They not only promote life-skills; but also develop qualities such as independence, co-operation, respect, effective communication, creativity, confidence and a healthy self-esteem among other benefits.
Memorable & Educational Experiences
