What to Expect?

Have you wondered where and how our wildlife eats, sleeps and plays outdoors? What would your child do when they come across wildlife during nature walks? Do you worry about your child’s ability to protect themselves or their safety when they encounter wildlife?

This programme provides opportunities to introduce basic survival skills to our young hikers at two different parks – Windsor Nature Park and Lower Peirce Reservoir.

They will have their senses actively engaged and get to meet the lovely residents of the park, like the macaques, the drongos, and even wild boars, under the watchful eye of trained instructors. This outdoor nature programme guarantees our young hikers new experiences and opportunities to challenge their limits and develop an “I Can Do IT (even with my tiny feet)”-spirit.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does my child need to be potty trained?

While potty training can start with children as young as 24-36 months old, every child is different. The programme will include ample opportunities for toileting. If your child is not completely potty trained and requires the use of diapers, please ensure that extra pull-up diapers are packed for use during the programme.

What happens if it rains on the day of camp?

All children are required to bring their raincoats during the camp. In the event of light rain, the camp will still take place with the children safely suited up with raincoats. Rest assure that the children's safety is of utmost importance. Hence, during heavy rain and thunderstorm, all outdoor activities will cease and the group will seek shelter at the nearest shelter/pit-stop immediately. Wet weather activities/plans will take place then. All our camp locations have appropriate shelters.

Do you offer Sat/Sun camp?

100% refund for withdrawal request received at least 30 days before 1st day of camp. However, please note that there will be a service and processing fee imposed by the ticket registration agent. Thereafter, we adhere to a no-refund policy, unless stated otherwise. In the event the camp is cancelled, a full refund will be given.
