Back to Basics Kids Camp (Nov/Dec 2018)

Regular price $150.00 Sale

This year-end holiday program for kids aims to detach them from their usual gadgets and reconnect them with nature. Through hands-on and literary sessions covering a wide variety of topics all led by nature, our little participants will also be reminded about the important values of: 
  • resilience 
  • patience
  • self-love
  • gratitude
  • respect
  • independence
  • creative approach to challenges
Facilitated by our Founder, Cynthea, this camp is fun-filled and full of learning opportunities. We encourage children to be fully expressive and celebrate every child's unique personality as we believe there is no right or wrong in their learning paces or capabilities.

We aim to provide a safe and nurturing environment to encourage free creativity, expression and most importantly, be themselves. 

You have the option of registering your child for either day of this 2-day camp or sign up for both days and get a discount.

Day 1: Wednesday

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. 

Note: We serve vegetarian food - parents should inform us of any food allergies we should be aware of, prior to the camp. 

Furushiki Pattern Printing 
Pattern printing is a lost art in today's modern world of conveniences. We want to teach children how they can create their own patterns through vegetable carvings before being printed onto cotton cloth using non-toxic fabric paint.  

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. 


Day 2: Thursday

Botanical Art Making
We want kids to start looking at unwanted things such as fallen leaves from a different perspective. In this art-making session, kids will have to create beautiful artworks using just fallen leaves, dried vegetable peels and, their imagination. One man's rubbish is another man's treasure!

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, accepts 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.
