The first and still the best - it's the Village Day Camp™! For 4 - 14 year olds
Developed over 45 years of experience, the Village Day Camp (VDC) is the foundation on which Village Camps S.A in Switzeland was built. Initially created in 1972 to provide children in the local Geneva community with an opportunity to experience a fun and educational summer, VDC has grown in both popularity and its capabilities. It is the most comprehensive Day Camp in Singapore providing weeks of fun and experiences to all who participate.
Campers arrive in the morning and are greeted by their respective counsellors and junior counsellors according to age group. The day is divided into several periods where campers partake in fun and exciting activities. Education Through Recreation™ remains Village Day Camps’ guiding motto and all activities are designed to encompass this notion as well as promote leadership and teamwork. During each session along with new educational activities, campers will participate in excursions off campus such as the Marina Bay Gardens and the local ropes course to name a few, depending up the age group.
Team events will provide insight into effective teamwork skills while providing fun, stimulating challenges. Digital photography will permit the capture of the daily programme, with campers taking part in the action to provide web coverage of what’s happening each day. The day comes to an end at 16:00 where campers are picked up by their parents or dropped off via the bus service.
Supervision and safety are of paramount importance at Village Camps with the general welfare of the individual child our primary concern. Counsellor groups are between 10 and 15 campers with two to three counsellors assigned to each of these groups. In addition, specialist counsellors selected for specific skills organise and direct specific activities. Overall we have a ratio of around one staff member for every 5 children.
For any emergencies, the hospital is only ten minutes from the college.
The programme fees include all activities and use of facilities, hot lunches, drinks, afternoon snacks and liability insurance. The camp day is from 09:00 - 16:00.
