“My son enjoyed the Multi-Sport and Coding camp so much, he just didn't want it to end! We have friends who planned to join for one week only, enjoyed it so much, instantly registered for the second week, if not their school started earlier, would have joined the third week as well.” - Anson, dad of 9-year-old

We have a full-time nurse on site for every camp week operating from the schools' health center. Our nurses are there to administer medication, first aid and support with all COVID-19 reporting, as needed. The nurse is available Monday morning to collect any medications and speak to parents before camp starts. Our Camp Asia team members are all first-aid trained.
