An Example Day at our Outdoor Adventure Camp
Treat your children to a refreshing break from the indoors! Just like our Forest School programmes our outdoor adventure camps are guided by the interests of the children themselves. We provide a wide variety of experiences for the children to choose from and the table below provides an example of the kinds of things your child will be doing at camp. We never force participation, and we know how and when to carefully expand comfort zones. Our skilled instructors will be flexible and plan experiences based on the interests of their unique group of children.
We will be exploring exciting collaborations with organisations who share our ethos and excel in inspiring and connecting children to the energy of the natural world around them. Collaborations will foster holistic development and wellbeing and will help us to deliver calmer, happier and healthier children at the end of our camp (marshmallows excluded!).
Outdoor Adventure Camp Guide
Download and read our camp guide for a more detailed explanation into the ethos of Forest Schools which underpins our camps and more examples of what the children might get up to every day. remember, each day is different as we design each camp based upon the interests of the unique children we have attending that week.
What about Covid-19?: Please see our Communicable Diseases Policy and rest assured that we will adhere to all government requirements for your child's safety.
My Children are in two different age groups, what about the pick-up and drop-off time? We've found that our youngest campers struggle with the 3.5hrs length of our camps so for our 4-5yr olds we'll be ending camp at 12.00pm instead of 12.30pm. If you have a child attending in an older age group which ends at 12.30pm we recommend collecting the younger child first, helping them to change, eat and rest at Core Collective or Baker & Cook (there's a playground for small children) and we'll have the older siblings ready for collection from 12.30pm. The staggered timings also help us with safe-distancing and reducing congestion in the car park.
How about wet weather? Wildlings @ Dempsey; 27A Loewen Road, is part of the larger Core Collective fitness and wellness hub. In our nature space we have plenty of shelter from wet weather (and we encourage the children to play in the rain!) but lightning is a serious threat in our tropical environment so we take shelter at the main pavilion or building if needed. Please see our Adverse Weather Policy for more information.
Do you provide food and drinks? For our Outdoor Adventure Camps we do not provide snacks. We might roast sweetcorn on the campfire or bake jacket potatoes in the solar oven for our experiences. We often hunt for salad ingredients or ingredients for making drinks from our gardens.
For our full day Eco-Warrior Camps lunch will be cooked by the children on the campfire daily. Camp food included pastas, stews and soups so please note that other than vegetarian we wont be able to meet the dietary needs of all children.
Please provide your child's dietary requirements when booking and always send them to camp with a substantial snack and full water bottle. We have chilled drinking water at Core Collective. by the ladies bathrooms so please fill water bottles before camp.
How will you divide the children into groups? Each group will comprise the number of children permitted by the government, up to a maximum of 8. Children will be split into age groups, existing friendships play a part, as does gender so please email us if you would like your child to be placed with a friend. Although we can usually accommodate requests for one child to be placed with another one or two, we can't guarantee it.
Child to staff ratio For children aged 4 to 6 years old the ratio is six children to one instructor. For children aged 7 yrs and older the ratio is eight children to one instructor. There is also a Camp Director and extra trained staff for campfire and tools experiences. Collaborators are additional to Wildlings staff.
What about safe distancing? children are spaced apart when stationary (i.e. when eating) and individual groups will also be using different zones at different times. Our space is large and outdoors so distancing is entirely possible, We will likely bring all groups together onto our grasslands for some fun and games, whilst keeping the groups apart. We will work hard to both maintain a distance, yet help the children to feel part of a larger community. We will relax restrictions if allowed.
Face coverings: Face coverings will be removed when undertaking physical exercise and during snack time. Face coverings can also obscure the vision, so when we are undertaking throwing and catching; obstacle courses, balancing, climbing, etc masks will also be removed for safety reasons and children will maintain a safe distance. Our space is well ventilated, being the great outdoors! Please provide all face coverings inside labelled Ziploc bags. Staff will sanitise their hands immediately if helping a child with their mask or shield. Children under the age of 6 do not need to wear a face covering. We will remove the requirement for children to wear face coverings if allowed.
What should we pack in our child's bag? A good-sized snack, a generously sized drinking water bottle, a spare set of clothes, a small towel, mosquito repellant (apply before camp please), hat, (apply sunscreen before camp please), a spare face shield or mask. (in a Ziploc bag). All items with a label, please. Please no mosquito patches, these fall off and pollute our nature space.
What should our child wear? Long sleeves, long trousers, closed shoes, and socks, please. Ideally, old clothes loosely fitting, easy to change that you are happy to get mucky. There are also plenty of opportunities to get wet so a change of clothes is essential. We will help younger children who need help to change.
What about dengue? Currently, our site is not located inside a dengue cluster and the Dengue situation is currently under control n Singapore. As a nature space, with jungle bordering two sides and our own slice of the jungle, mosquitoes are inevitable so please dress your child in loose clothing covering arms and legs and apply mosquito repellant and pack this in their bags. We are very actively tackling the mosquitoes on all fronts to make our nature space a safe and pleasant place to be. With tenants now in the large adjacent building with regular fogging we expect the mosquito situation to continually improve.
Can you accommodate children with special needs? We have in the past been able to accommodate children with mild special needs at camp but please do seek advice from us first before booking to be sure we can provide your child with the care necessary. We are happy to book children with special needs in in advance to secure places for them and to allow parents to contact us before bookings open.

Alternatively, as long as withdrawal is received at least 14 days prior to camp we would be happy to give you a full credit to be used against future camp bookings, to be used within 12 months of the date of issuance, which provides you with priority booking. No full or partial refunds will be given for cancellations received within 14 days of the commencement of the camp, except for cancellations due to reasons set out in clauses b, c, or d below.
b) If the child is unable to attend camp due to sickness or injury (in either case, supported by a medical certificate) 50% of the camp fee will be refunded upon receipt of the medical certificate as long as notice is submitted at least 48hrs in advance of the start of camp.

d) If a child falls sick during camp then no credit or refund will be given as it will be impossible to find a replacement for the camp, however, you may transfer the place to a friend.
e) We reserve the right to cancel any camp due to insufficient numbers. Parents will be notified at least 7 days prior to the commencement of the camp and a full refund of the camp fee will be provided.
f) We make every effort to ensure that the children have a great time on camp. We receive many messages from satisfied parents. From time to time, however, a child may be withdrawn from the camp by their parents because they are not enjoying the camp or the camp does not meet the expectations of the parents. Please talk to us if this is the case and we will try our best to resolve any issues. However, no refunds will be made if a parent willingly withdraws a child from camp early.
g) There are no refunds for campers expelled for inappropriate behavior. Inappropriate behavior includes fighting, bullying, aggressive or inappropriate behavior towards either the camp leaders or another camper, vandalism, stealing, repeatedly displaying an uncooperative attitude or disrespect for others, running away from the leaders and/or any other action that in the Camp Director’s opinion threatens the health, safety, or well-being of any person, or the operation of the Camp. Under most circumstances, campers and their parents will be warned if their behavior is unacceptable and will be given a chance to improve and change. However, if the behavior is, in the opinion of the Camp Director, too severe, they will be asked to leave camp.
When making your booking the primary customer is named, as well as an emergency contact, and we assume that one or the other will be dropping off and collecting the child.
If another person will be collecting your child please WhatsApp their name and telephone number to 8875 5919 by 11am so that we can ensure that your child is released into the care of the correct person. We may call you to confirm if we are in any way uncertain of the authority of a person to collect your child from camp.
Please remember that the drop-off time is 9am and the collection time is 12.30pm. There is a 10-minute grace period but please do not be late to collect your child as this has a knock-on effect on staff, camp planning and may cause anxiety in children.
Please ensure that your child’s belongings have their name on them. We will do our best to keep their things together, but Wildlings accepts no responsibility for lost or damaged property.
