For kids who are adventurous, creative and love the outdoors, these ‘green‘ camps encourage them to preserve the planet and embrace sustainability while having fun.
Dempsey Explorer Camp offers 6 individual camps for children between the ages of 3 and 12 years. The camps are focused on fun learning – how to preserve the planet and develop skills for sustainability.
The camps are totally ‘green‘ – no plastics of any kind, reusable utensils for meals, recycled materials for most of the craft work and a workshop on sustainability by Nature Society, Singapore.
Themes include nature and exploration, global cultures, robotics and coding, sports, art and creativity, dance and performance.
Through the experiential curriculum, experienced educators and instructors can inspire a love for the environment – for preserving and caring for it through zero waste. The experienced instructors and camp workers who will be caring and assisting the children in their various activities are trained in childhood education.

The Dempsey Explorer Camp runs weekly, Mondays to Fridays, from 8.30 a.m. to 3.00 p.m.
In the unique Think Green camp, kids will be inspired to love nature and preserve the environment through adventures in their own naturespace and survival village. Campers will learn how to build a teepee tent, plant their own herb garden, learn wilderness survival skills, go for nature walks, visit local farms and explore animals and wildlife found in the rich nature reserves at Dempsey.
Kids who enjoy tackling challenges and solving problems using technology will be asking for more TECHCATION Camps. Using STEAM learning, campers will be engaged in robotics, coding, 3D printing, website design and Virtual Reality, based on current topics such as renewable energy and the geography of water. This exciting camp challenges campers to re-imagine the world and encourages them to celebrate innovation and collaboration while tackling real world issues.
Kids who enjoy non-stop action will like Camp Olympics, which gives them an opportunity to try out a rotation of well-loved sports such as soccer, basketball, rugby, hockey, handball, badminton and cricket. Not only do they get to play sports, they will also learn about different sports and games played in different countries, make some sports equipment from recycled material and wind down with yoga sessions.
Kids who love variety will love the endless action and activities at the World Explorer camp. With ‘passports’ in hand, children will ‘travel’ to a different country each day, learning about different cultures and environments, and ways to protect them. They will explore each country and culture through art, music and movement, sport and geography games, storytelling, dramatic play, the preparation of traditional foods, and more.
The Kids Create camp is a place where a child can get messy and have lots of fun creating unique art and treasures. Skilled and experienced instructors will encourage and motivate him/her to create unique artworks that is related to nature, famous artists, people, places and stories. Campers will be dabbling in glass art, wood working, clay modelling, recycled art installations and much more.
The Dempsey’s Got Talent camp is for any child who loves to dance, perform and present a good show. Kids will be introduced to different dance genres such as hip-hop, jazz and ballet. They will also design costumes, props and backdrops, and wow parents and fellow campers with a performance.
