What Our Parents Say

“Thanks team for an amazing camp week! 

L had the BEST time this week! She was soooo happy every day!  She can’t stop talking about a seeing snake (as big as my couch 😳), her new friend’s mom who rescues and cares for snakes and obviously the chocolate s’mores! 😂” SN, Mum of L, 5yrs

An Example Week 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 might 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!).

Practical Information

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.

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? Larger groups of children will be subdivided, usually based on age and interests, by the camp leaders looking after that group. Friends will be kept together if they have been booked into the same age group for the camp. 

Child to staff ratio For children aged 4 to 6 years old the maximum ratio is six children to one instructor. For children aged 7 yrs and older the maximum 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.

Face coverings: Face coverings are no longer required at Wildlings as we are entirely outdoors. Should we have to seek Shelter at Core Collective due to adverse weather then children over 6yrs will need to put on a mask so please ensure that they have one in their bags. 

 

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 cluste. 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. 

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. 

Location

Pick-up and drop-off is at our premises in Dempsey. The address is 27A Loewen Road, Singapore, 248839. We occupy part of the Core Collective fitness and wellness hub. The location boasts an excellent cafe, pizza restaurant, Swish swimming pool, fitness and wellness services and the nearby Trimmings Spa. You can find our gate at the end of the car park, past the Swish Swimming and towards the large trees. 

If the car park is busy we recommend parking outside 71 & 72 Loewen Road around the corner or the car park at the recreation ground across the road may be open. 

Terms and Conditions

Waiver

Please ensure that you have signed our drop-off waiver before camp. 

 

Refund and Cancellations

 

Please see our Policies page

Expectations

 

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.

 

Behaviour

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.

 

Authorized person

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 12.00pm. 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. 

 

Belongings

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. 

 

Photos

By booking a camp, the guardian or parent of the child agrees to the following:

“I permit any photos, taken at Wildlings, 27A Loewen road, to be used by Wildlings for promotional purposes unless I have provided word in writing explicitly stating that I do not consent.

 

This includes photographs or digital images, audio visual, sound or digital recordings of the child(ren) participating in the camp for media or promotional releases or articles, including newspapers, radio, television or printed publications relating to Wildlings or its activities, electronic publications and communications such as the Wildlings website, newsletters, or social media pages including Facebook and Instagram.”

To protect the privacy of the children, we will never name children in captions on media online, all photographs are checked for appropriateness and used within context.

If you do not consent, please message +65 8157 0533 with written withdrawal of consent and we will not take photographs of your child. 

Accuracy of information

You confirm that all information provided in the online form and in other forms of written communication to Wildlings is accurate and complete and that there is no missing information regarding your child which could affect the smooth running of the camp, including the safety of all participants.
