Preparing Your Child For Camp
Camp Asia is all about having FUN and making new friends. We really would like your children to feel “Happy and Safe”. We do this by making your child our priority. When your child comes to Camp Asia for the first time, here are some tips:
- All Camp Staff will be in black polo shirts with the Camp Asia logo. Please tell your child to look for us if they have any worries or concerns, as they arrive at Camp or at any time during the week.
- All children will have a Camp Asia name tag which will be handed out during check-in daily and collected at check-out.
- Please label all your children’s belongings, this helps us return items if they are misplaced.
- Camp Asia can often be very busy on the first day so please arrive earlier if it is your first time. Monday is particularly busy as parents, helpers and children arrive for registration. By arriving early, you will allow your child to settle and become familiar with their surroundings.
- We love that Camp Asia children get to make new friends. If your children needs any further support or have specific worries or concerns that we should be aware, please email us in advance. This will help us take the best care of them on Camp.
- We take friend requests and try our best to allocate friends to the same group, where possible, however please ensure you let us know in advance.
The success of this experience for your child is dependent on our partnership. Please help us make your child’s time at Camp Asia an awesome one. #SafeandHappy

EpiPens and Medicine
Children have to bring their EpiPens or medicines (if any) in a large zip-lock bag with their name and dosage information clearly marked.

Please ensure the expiration date is valid, out of date Epi-Pens will not be accepted onsite. At the end of the week, the labeled bag will be returned to your child to bring home.
