An Overview of Summer Camp Options in Singapore  

If you are unfamiliar with the variety of summer camps available in Singapore, you are in for a delightful surprise! Camps are available for almost every interest - from music and dance to science, coding, sports, languages, and mindfulness.

These camps offer a chance to explore disciplines not typically covered in the regular academic curriculum. Aside from learning new skills, these camps also play a crucial role in developing independence and enhancing social competencies. As children engage in different settings, they develop essential skills that will aid them in navigating the academic and professional landscapes in Singapore’s future.  


So, What Sets Music Camps Apart?  

As mentioned, Singapore offers various summer camps, from sports to art to coding. Among these options, music camps stand out. These music camps provide an immersive experience for children to explore various instruments and engage in collaborative play.

Music camps also provide an inspiring and supportive environment where children can experiment and take creative risks without the pressure of exams or grades. This freedom encourages them to try new activities, such as drumming!

What Are the Benefits of Music Camps for Children?  

Music camps provide opportunities for children to enhance critical thinking skills by improvisation, develop social skills through collaborative performances, and gain independence. Moreover, these camps encourage the development of emotional intelligence as children express and manage their emotions through music. A study conducted in 2018 found that:  

“Participation in camps has led to improved social and emotional competencies, including teamwork and public speaking.”  

Music camps also highlight collaboration, which is rarely the focus in regular one-to-one music classes. Participants get a chance to work together with their peers, harmonising their talents with those of others. This collaborative atmosphere polishes their musical skills and instils essential life skills like teamwork, communication, and empathy.  

Engaging in these group performances allows children to discover the ups and downs of creating music, offering a richer experience than solo practice could ever provide.

How to Choose the Right Music Camp?  

When selecting a music camp in Singapore, evaluate the duration (day camp or overnight), provisions (are meals provided?), and location to ensure it aligns with your child's needs and convenience. Next, it is crucial to determine that instructors are not merely part-time volunteers but qualified professionals with substantial music education experience and mastery of their instruments, as this directly impacts the quality of the camp.  

Additionally, it is important to consider available programs and activities, such as instrumental skills and storytelling, to enhance learning and engagement, along with practical learning materials that can still be reused/ referred to after the camp.
