This March holiday we are going to learn how to protect our environment! We will learn how to conserve our limited resources and live a more sustainable lifestyle.

As the children are shown how to care for our environment they will learn to be more organized, more considerate, more compassionate, more responsible and be tidier. They will become an inspiration to others after becoming our MYMCA ECO HEROES!

This camp will be teaching the realities of our limited resources and daily life conservation habits and effort. We will also touch on the topic of a sustainable lifestyle, exploring the possibility of such a future. The activities are designed for kids to understand the benefit of being tidier, organized & responsible. The values of being considerate and compassionate will also be emphasised.

Because the future of Singapore and our world lies in the hands of our children, our objective is to plant environmental concern in them and perhaps interest them in the broad and important discipline of environmental sustainability.

MYMCA Learning & Adventure camp programmes focus on character and value development while having fun!

Our core value of Caring, Honesty, Responsibility and Respect shapes the design and guide the facilitation of our activities.
(The camp will be held at Metropolitan YMCA Singapore)
