Most kids love the idea of ​​sleepovers. Being away from home is exciting and allows them to form strong bonds through shared experiences. If, however, you fear for their safety, Joe’s party at the Singapore Science Center is a win-win solution. Held at KidsSTOP, the Science Center’s dedicated children’s gallery, it includes family camp activities with lots of learning. Camping together in Singapore will be an unforgettable experience!

Designed for children aged 4 to 8 and their parents, it is here that your child can experience a unique adventure with you in a protected environment. The bonus point is that they are simultaneously exposed to scientific concepts through creative fun.

Along with camp activities that build teamwork, STEAM and water play keeps your child busy during the day. These play-based learning projects are not only entertaining, they also help stimulate your child’s cognitive development at an essential stage of their growth. By guiding them through the initial challenges, you also bond as a family.

Wondering what some of the meaningful camp activities are in store at Jo’s Night Out? Take a look below.

Things to learn while camping at Science Center Singapore!

What’s a camp without a tent? Even if you are camping at KidsSTOP at Science Center Singapore, you will be sleeping as a family in tents. By setting up your tents for the night in this camp activity, you will strengthen your family’s teamwork.

Before bed though, there are tons of camp activities. For example, children will learn simple survival skills like how to call for help and perform first aid.

There will be pizza and pasta served for lunch, as well as sandwiches and other bites for dinner. You don’t have to worry about anyone going hungry when you camp at Science Center Singapore!

If your kids love playing in the water, they’ll also be thrilled with the camp activities at Waterworks. As they indulge in water play by navigating a maze of water jets or on a giant swing in the pool, they will learn the importance of water in a vivid way.

Scientific concepts are also presented here. For example, the giant mechanical water clock has an anemometer to measure wind speed, a windsock to indicate wind direction, and a rain gauge to measure the amount of rain.

In a dry area, other camp activities will allow children to witness real-life applications of scientific measurements and even experiment with dry ice.

Bring swimwear and an extra towel to dry before the next activity.

Exclusive free game

Need more reasons to join the camp? A stay at KidsSTOP gives your family exclusive access to the center’s facilities outside of general opening hours. Children will be able to play for free for one hour (9am-10am) before the opening to the public and they will be able to play until the end of the morning at 1pm. Consider it VIP access for the day!

This means, among other things, that your children will be among the first to access the Dino Pit. How are you transport them to the Jurassic era by digging up ‘dinosaur fossils’. The more adventurous can descend the Giant J, which rises to seven meters, or go through the Climber to reach a music room for a musical respite.
