About the programme

Learning Outcomes:

  • Application of outdoor survival and etiquette
  • Ability to understand and spot animals’ homes around us

Learning Focus:

  • Outdoor Learning – Homes of the animals (animal’s habitat)
  • Outdoor Adventure – Outdoor survival and etiquette

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.

Our instructors reserve the right to turn away/ refuse participants who appear visibly unwell on the day of programme.

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!

Change

Every child has different learning needs. Our instructors are not trained to support children with additional learning needs and as we have a 1:6 staff child ratio, we seek your kind understanding that we may not be able to render the type of additional support required and take in your child for our camps. Safety is an important aspect for us during our programme. If you wish to have someone speak to you on this, please contact us at letsgo@outdoorschool.sg.
