About the programme

Do you worry your child will hurt themselves and not know what dangers to look out for when outdoors? What should you do when we come across poisonous plants and wild animals in the forests?

Enjoy a multi-sensory learning experience with nature through a child-led rescue mission. Learn to identify possible hazards in the forest, minimise the risks and be equipped with basic survival skills if left alone in the woods. Through collaborative play, children will develop their creative and problem-solving skills with the help of others.

 

Learning Focus:

  • Outdoor Learning – Safety floral fauna (Poisonous plants and venomous animals)
  • Outdoor Adventure – Risk Assessment

Learning Outcomes:

  • Understand the difference between venomous and poisonous
  • Awareness on useful, edible, and poisonous plants
  • Ability to identify risk and hazards in nature and react appropriately when met with risks
  • Develop responsibility, risk-taking and resiliency

What Our Parents Have To Say

My child enjoyed climbing the tree and splashing in mud for the first time. It's a good experience especially if parents are too busy to take their children into the forest themselves :)


Azizah

A whole new experience for my child! At home, she shared on different types of plants & animals with personal and hands on experience. The facilitators had done well in instilling self responsibility to the children. Muhaya had been asking to have more trekking in the future and looking forward to the next exciting and adventurous holiday program by outdoor singapore school!
