Thank you for planning and carrying out a robust and challenging leaders CAMP. Right from pre-CAMP to the CAMP itself, CAMP CHALLENGE has been up to mark and up to speed, in line with planning alongside VS.

It was a great 4D3N. Facilities are well-maintained and instructors are a professional lot. I believe FOCUS Adventure invests heavily in its instructors whether for a school camp (like VS) or corporate training (Eunoia JC and NUH doctors when we were there).

Keep up the great work and we will see you soon!

Ms Vincy is fast to respond to enquiries and our requests are always fulfilled. She is very supportive. The CAMP chief is effective in managing our kids. It would be better if he can show up more often. We loved his firm and clear types of instructions. The two team leaders are very caring and detailed. The kids could not stop loving them more and developed an instant attachment to them. It is amazing that a strong bonding can be developed in a very short time of two and half days. After more working with kids from various backgrounds, surely they can manage kids much more effectively 🙂 The assistant instructors are helpful. Yaya is always the generator of laughter. We all love her jokes.
