Camp Asia is the coolest thing your kids can do during school holidays

As summer is fast approaching, parents might be wondering what there is for children to do in Ho Chi Minh City during the summer holidays? Look no further, Camp Asia has arrived!

Camp Asia is the leading holiday camp provider in Singapore and is launching in Vietnam from June 2018 through International School Saigon Pearl (ISSP). With a selection of 1, 2, 3 and 4-week camps available from June 18 to July 13, Camp Asia is flexible to suit everyone’s summer holiday plans.

The decision to introduce Camp Asia exclusively through ISSP was an obvious choice explains Angelina Tee, Managing Director, Vietnam for Cognita, “ISSP continues to provide an outstanding international education in Vietnam. The ISSP Leadership team are passionate and committed to improving every aspect of school life. Camp Asia can leverage this talent by providing a memorable experience for children during summer, in an environment that continues to be redeveloped with new facilities.”

Lester Stephens, Head of School at ISSP describes what it means to have been chosen by Camp Asia to be selected as an exclusive partner, “We, as a school community, are extremely honored. Camp Asia recognizes ISSP as the best international school for children from 18 months to 11 years old to launch in Vietnam.”

Launching a new holiday camp in an international environment has taken months of preparation as Kerriann Tyson-Jones, Head of Camp Asia shares, “I am thrilled to be bringing Singapore’s most successful children’s holiday camp to Vietnam. Ensuring the same quality and standard of camp is delivered has been integral to this expansion. It has been a pleasure supporting and working with the Camp Asia team at ISSP and developing the programs. I am sure the children (and teachers) will have lots of fun!”

With a selection of three programs to choose from, there is something for every child aged 18 months to 11 years old this summer. Each program focuses on continuing the development of physical, emotional and social skills whilst making new friendships in a fun and engaging environment through a balanced approach of conceptual learning, inquiry-based and the reinforcement of core skills.

MULTI ACTIVITY

Set within ISSP’s purpose built Early Education department and outdoor play spaces, children will continue their social, emotional, physical, cognitive and language development through a multi activity program. Supported by specialist Early Education teachers, children will participate in sensory and inquiry based activities, water sports, cooking, art, music and much more!

DEVELOPING SKILLS
For children aged 5 to 8 years old.
The fundamentals to a child’s ability is having a strong foundation of basic skills. From literacy, numeracy to communication and physical skills, this program promotes the development of the whole-child. A balanced schedule of academic and creative activities means a combination of both learning and fun.

INTENSIVE ENGLISH

The main component for this program will be for children to develop and grow their confidence through English language. Through each weekly concept, children will receive instruction from English language
