My students were very encouraged that they were able to do more than what they expected. The instructors tried to guide them to generalise what is learnt to their studies. It is also great that some instructors have served for a long time that they practically see many of the students grow over the past 3 to 5 years.

Admiralty Secondary School, Challenger Sports – Sports Climbing
5 November 2018

The 3 instructors are very interactive and friendly. This is very important for secondary school students especially those who needs motivation coming from a group of people who are just slightly older than them. Besides that, the CAMP coordinator is very proactive in helping with the necessary quotation for us. However, we also understand that due to constraints of budget, we will adjust accordingly in the future to be able to enjoy the full new facilities provided from the camp.

Nexus International School (Year 3), Team ExCELLence
 4 – 5 October 2018

A huge ‘thank you’ to you and your staff for all their hard work giving our learners a fantastic time and a course packed full with valuable learning experiences.  For nearly all our learners, this was their first residential trip and for many, the first night spent away from their family.  The very few cases of homesickness, was a clear indication of how secure, engaged and supported they felt.  The relationship your instructors built up with our learners; the great activities and the clarity and enthusiasm with which they were presented; the focus on teamwork skills and the ROSE values; and the overall thoroughness of the organisation of the course all made the CAMP hugely successful for every child.  Their CAMP CHALLENGE experience will have made a difference to their belief in themselves, their confidence and their teamwork skills and provide some great memories!  Love the video! It captured the core values, attributes and attitudes as well as the range of activities.

— Ms Susan Kelly

 Republic Polytechnic, Sailing Expedition
12 – 13 January 2018

Thank you CAMP CHALLENGE and the TEAM in supporting our student expedition. It was our first Sailing Expedition for this module and I thought the students benefited very much from their experience. Andrew and Am were our Skippers. Besides learning about Sailing, the students also learnt about Singapore shipping history and future developments. On the last day, we went to MCYS building and Fort Canning Hill for exploration. At those areas, we found out more about the old spice shipping trade as well as the early modern trading at Singapore River (before Keppel was built).

The learning from the exploration tied in nicely with the sharing by Andrew; the students get to understand the history of shipping and the economic importance to Singapore till now. The sailing experience from CAMP CHALLENGE significantly enhanced our learning journey in this programme.

I will like to thank Magdelene and Peixi for making this expedition possible.

Andrew and Am, for sharing their Sailing knowledge and history with such enthusiasm.

Lastly, I will like to thank the other crew members e.g. Sheena, Richard etc for helping our students through sharing and encouragement.

— Mr Chew Hiap Iuh
