Back to Basics Holiday Camp

Back to Basics Holiday Camp

Regular price $280.00 Sale

This special 2-day camp aims to detach children from gadgets and reconnect them with nature. Through hands-on and literary classes covering a wide variety of topics all led by nature, our little participants will also be reminded about the important values of: 
  • self-love
  • gratitude
  • respect
  • patience
  • independence
  • positive approach to challenges
  • resilience 
Facilitated by our Founder, Cynthea, this camp is fun-filled and full of laughters. We encourage children to be themselves and celebrate every child's creativity as we believe there is no right or wrong in their expressions of imagination. 


Day 1

Little Super Farmers
Our little participants will learn about urban farming and see how food is grown. They will learn about the various methods of propagation, making compost and harvesting. Every child gets to bring home a growing project. 


Hands-on Farm-to-Table Lunch
This is a useful life skill all kids should have. Participants will make their own lunch with their harvested produce, and learn about how vegetable scraps are never wasted, because all parts of the plant can either be eaten or composted. 

Tie-Dye Furoshiki
A gift that keeps on giving is one that is used to wrap a gift. Our little participants will get to tie-dye their very own Furoshiki (Japanese Wrapping Cloth) using vegetable and fruit dyes. They will learn how a Furoshiki is used traditionally instead of using disposable wrapping paper. 

Fun Haikus 
Creative writing can take the shape of easy, non-intimidating formats that have no right or wrong. This class aims to unleash the hidden talents of children who may have lower confidence in forming ideas and expressing them, all with the help of nature of course. 

Day 2

Paper Making
Paper is precious, and used ones can be recycled into new paper. Our participants will learn to make paper from scratch in this hands-on class, before framing it up to bring home! 

Hands-on Farm-to-Table Lunch
This is a useful life skill all kids should have. Participants will make their own lunch with their harvested produce, and learn about how vegetable scraps are never wasted, because all parts of the plant can either be eaten or composted. 

Tea-Harvesting, Blending & Making
What traditionally was tea time, is now gadget time, and we're reversing that! Our participants will learn to create their own non-caffeinated tea blends with fresh herbs from our farm, and experience the ritual of a tea ceremony which traditionally teaches simplicity, naturalism, imperfection and humility.

Gratitude Story-telling
As we come to the end of the camp, we want to encourage kids to remember what they've learnt. Our engaging story-telling session that features all our participants as characters within the story reiterates the skills and values they've learnt throughout the camp. With this, we conclude the camp with much gratitude and positivity.
