FAQ

FOR FUN SCIENCE

WHY DONT YOU USE WORKSHEETS?

We want the children to articulate their ideas, predictions and results.  This ensures the sessions are dynamic and gives the children confidence to share ideas.  It is important for the children to know that when an experiment doesn't work it is a learning opportunity, we will discuss what happened and explore the variables, experiment to find the answer.

IS THIS EDUCATIONAL?

Yes, our classes have prepared lesson plans with learning objectives.     But ..... we are not a school or an enrichment center, our aim is to make science fun and accessible. For the students to appreciate that science is all around us, not to cram as many facts and formulas as possible.  

WHAT WILL MY CHILD GET OUT OF THIS?

An enjoyable experience with a curiosity to learn more.  The science concepts are reinforced by lots of hands-on experiments.  We believe children learn through experience and will remember the experiment later on, drawing from this experience in future science classes at school.

FOR CAMP

DO YOU PROVIDE FOOD?

We usually do not provide food for camps for safety reasons.  With so many dietry requirements it is safer for the kids to bring their own food.  

IS THERE A BUS SERVICE AVAILABLE?

Our regular campers are islandwide and as such it would not be practical to offer a bus service as it would take too long to pick everyone up.

ARE THE CHILDREN SUPERVISED AT ALL TIMES?

Yes, we ensure the children are supervised at all times, during breaks and lunch we will make sure everyone is happy and safe.  

WHAT HAPPENS IF I AM LATE TO PICK UP?

No worries we will look after your child until you arrive, just let us know.

OTHER INFO

We take safety seriously, our programs have been running since 2009 and  thousands of children have had a great time at our camps.  We are fully insured, our staff are first aid certified, there is usually a medical clinic and nurse on site. 

WHAT ABOUT THE HAZE?

Unlike other camps, we can continue all our activities indoors.  Normally we plan for the children to be outdoors for some experiments, games, activities and sports. However in Haze conditions we will go to Plan B and adapt the program for indoors.  Some sports at Camp Cobra will be changed according to facilities available indoors.
