Fun With Newspapers Adventure Camp

The Press Foundation of Singapore, in collaboration with SPARKc@Marine Parade, will organise two 3-day Fun With Newspapers Adventure Camp for lower-secondary students during the school holiday week in March 2004.

Through a series of fun and challenging outdoor adventure activities which will also serve to develop leadership, self-confidence and character in the participants, the camps will aim to attract our youths to see the role of newspapers as a useful learning tool.

To be held at SPARKc's Children Adventure Training Centre, which is fully equipped with specially designed state-of-the-art facilities and equipment such as a 10-metre high Multi-Element Adventure Tower and a 7-metre high Challenge Ropes Course, the participants during each camp will find themselves actively engaging in team-building and creative problem-solving activities with elements of learning through the use of newspapers thoughtfully weaved into the programme. Housed in unique 'tree-huts", camp participants will also find themselves going on an expedition hike and spending a night in tents over at Pulau Ubin.

The camps promise to equip the students with key life skills that will be of help in complementing their academic pursuits.
