About this event

DesignTinkers 5-day Holiday Camp offer various hands-on and inquiry-based projects exploring ideas to various creative make and build activities designed for children to inquire, think critically and learn new skills to prototype their ideas from 2D to 3D.

We encourage children to collaborate in teams to work on the projects, learning to communicate and problem solve effectively, developing the essential 21st Century Skills in a fun and engaging way.

First day at camp, children will explore design and architectural concepts through sketching and hands-on building with a range of materials, teamworking in groups and also working individually.

Second day at camp, children will be introduced to the concept of Modules in Design and get creative working with everyday objects to design their own unique modules before transforming them into a replicable system to form infinite designs.

By the 3rd day at camp, children will start a project-based workshop where they get to design a home for themselves or their family. Children will apply Design Thinking principles in understanding the needs and challenges of who they are designing for and be introduced to the basics of space planning for a home. They will translate their 2D planning to 3D model with consideration for architectural scale, light, ventilation, views and communal landscape area in their design. They will learn basic model making and get creative re-using, re-purposing and transforming re-cycled materials into their unique individual home model prototype.

Children have lots of fun building at this workshop and they are always eager to share their creations with parents at pick-up time! DesignTinkers camps are specially curated and led by instructors who are experienced architects with the passion and experience of working with young children to nurture their creative interests. Camps are held in our spacious and conducive classroom for kids to create freely and explore various make-and-build activities.

Cancellation Policy:

For cancellations of camp/ workshop due to unforeseen COVID restrictions, a full refund will be issued to you.

Given the limited availability of slots due to the small size of our camp/ workshop, we do not accept cancellations once booked and full payment made, if there is a change of mind.

Camp/ workshop bookings are however transferable to another child of the same age group if your child is unable to attend, if a written request is made 7 days prior to camp/ workshop.

DesignTinkers reserves the right to cancel a camp/ workshop if minimum group size sign-ups requirement is not obtained, or when Covid-19 safe management measures cannot be met, you will be notified 5 days before camp start date and a full refund will be issued to you.

Given the nature of a camp format, we are unable to offer make-up camps in the event of a no-show or cancellation. Any alternative arrangements that may be offered out of goodwill (e.g. joining a similar camp at a different location/date/time) are strictly subject to availability. No refunds will be given if an alternative arrangement cannot be arranged.

In the event that your child presents any Covid-19 symptoms on any given day of the camp/ workshop, we seek your cooperation to see a doctor, keep them home and not attend the camp/ workshop. Children who appear to our facilitators to be symptomatic on the day of camp/ workshop will not be allowed to join and they will be required to be picked up promptly. We will issue a credit note upon the receipt of a medical certificate, and an alternative arrangement will be made for your child to attend another session suitable for his age and interest if available, otherwise, a full refund will be issued to you.
