2020 Summer Science STEM Camps
Age 5 - 8 years
Mon – Wed / 10am-3pm
Location: Tai Shui Hang Campus
Most STEM classes are indoors BUT not this one! We need to be outside to make our experiments BIGGER and BOLDER. With a REAL science teacher guiding you through the experiments, I can't wait to see what we might blow-up, create or discover!
Every morning you will learn something different and more exciting about Science. The rest of the day will be spent climbing trees, swimming in the river and doing some CRAZY MONSTER STYLE experiments.
This camp is not just for kids who love science, but everyone that has ever wanted to break something, experiment and explore new things.
We will meet you at our Tai Shui Hang Campus at 10:00 am.
Q. What activities will be involved in the camp?
A. We are a play-based, child-led program. All our activities and plans for the camp revolve around that core value. In saying that we can tell you that because it is early autumn, that every camp (weather permitting) will be engaged in water play and outdoor adventuring. Added to that are the activities that we will initiate with the children, but that the children will expand on, that are centred around the theme of the camp.
Q. Where is the location of the Camp?
A. We use the latest weather prediction to choose a location for our camps. Therefore we need to wait until a prediction is available before making that decision. We will email the camp registered participants the camp location when we know it.
Q. Can I accompany my child?
A. Children under the age of 4 need to be accompanied by a caregiver. If your child is older then 4, we ask if you can entrust them to us, as they generally engage more with the entire group, when they do not have a parent/helper around. However, if your child needs you to join him/her on the camp, that is alright. We ask that you can pay HKD100, per day, to cover transport.
Q. Must I prepare lunch for my child to bring with?
A. Yes, as well as a small snack and drink.
Q. What is the difference between a Forest Camp and a HANDS Camp?
A. Forest Camps, are where we go to locations within HK's multitude of country parks and some even private country areas. We explore, engage in free play around our camp theme, learn about the forest we are in and grow in confidence in water play.
HANDS is an acronym standing for Helping A Neighbors Develop Skills. In our HANDS Camp, we use real tools to build some life-size projects! Under the mentorship of some real craftsmen and artists, we will teach the children the lost art of tinkering and making!
These camps are aimed at ages 5-8y. We will be using our campus in Tai Shui Hang for this, as it is where we have all our tools etc. The Hands camps will also have free play time, which will utilise all the play areas at our Tai Shui Hang Campus; the upper playground, The adventure playground, the stream and our Farm.
