This coming summer holiday season is likely to see more parents than ever looking for great activities to keep their kids busy in Hong Kong. Instead of trying to come up with an endless stream of fun and educational ideas on your own, why not turn to the experts in holiday camps? Stamford American School Hong Kong’s Camp Asia programme offers young campers the opportunity to try something new this summer, or delve deeper into their passions.
The Camp Asia programme caters for children from four to 16 years of age, and runs from 9am until midday each day. There are 13 camp options available – which means something for everyone! The activities are catered for each specific age group: for ages four to seven years; another for the eight-to-10-year-olds, and one for those who are eleven to 16 years of age. Students are then further divided into sections by age.
Multi-activity holiday camps
Camp Asia’s programme is packed with new experiences that cater to a range of interests. Campers can do deep dive into art, drama, storytelling and science, depending on which of the dozen or so available streams they enrol in, be it Creative Communications, Tech Explorers, Coding, Art and Design or others. At Stamford’s 10,000-square-foot arena, children in each stream will have loads of space to move freely and get busy. They’ll also have access to Stamford’s Innovation Centre, a resource fully stocked with the latest technology.
Got a budding artist or creative mind in your home? He or she will be able to unleash their creativity in the Art and Design stream of Camp Asia. If your child has ever dreamed about designing their own masterpiece using hands-on and digital tools, then this stream might be the perfect fit. They’ll get to produce their own visions, starting with design basics and then exploring construction as they work to realise their creations. Each piece is then presented to parents in a virtual showcase.
If your child is more drawn to the science and tech side of things, the Innovation Experts stream is a great opportunity for them to put their skills and passion to use these school holidays. Here, students don their thinking-caps to solve real world challenges based on the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. Led by Stanford’s innovation team, they’ll design, create and present their ideas using a variety of media from augmented and virtual reality to digital creation tools.
