Camp Synopsis

In this fast-paced, digital world which values efficiency above all else, most people engage in the pursuit of material wealth. Regardless of age, most people are inseparable from their cellphones. Hence there is a lack of personal interaction and widening gap between people which results in a lack of understanding. This is also present among family members. In this generation, children are also burdened with lots of schoolwork and stress. Their lives basically revolve around their schoolwork, and this causes them to be less adept at managing their overall personal lives. They tend to seek solace and comfort in the virtual world, cutting off interactions with the external world, resulting in a lot of negativity accumulating within their young minds.

This unique journey enables children to learn how to deal with their encounters in life, manage their own time, complete tasks systematically, speak properly and honestly to build trust with others. Special arrangements will be made to allow them to get in touch with their emotions, learn how to express them properly, learn to accept themselves for who they are and to understand the perspectives of others.

On the second day of the camp, not only can parents learn about the content of the Chinese Classics, they can also learn more about how their children think and feel, and in the process, learn how to improve their communication styles with them. Lastly, there is also a specially arranged segment to enable parents and children to narrow the gap between them and complete a totally unique and joyous learning journey together.

Children aged 8-10

As parents, do you feel disappointed when you expressed your love to your children and it is not reciprocated? Do you wish your children will share more of their thoughts and feelings with you? Do you feel that the sibling relationships among your children are not so close? 

What are the standards for being a good child? How should parents nurture their children so that the family lives in harmony, with mutual respect, and love towards one another? 

In this 2-day camp with a parent workshop, participants will learn the first 2 chapters of The Standards for Being A Good Student and Child (or called The Guidelines for Being A Good Person, or Guide to A Happy Life) written by the ancient sages.

  3. Enhance communication skills

  4. Inspire mutual love and respect towards one another 


Children will celebrate their “birthday” on the second day of the camp. They are to organize their birthday party themselves. They need to go through 6 stations to find out (experience) the message The Power of Love and Respect is Magical.

Synopsis:

xiao 孝 (filial piety), which consists of reverent, sincere, self-sacrificing, and unconditional care for one’s parents while they are alive and after their death, is one of the basic values of Chinese traditional culture and the basis for the development of the moral person in Confucian ethics. Confucius describes filial piety and reiterates for its importance in creating a peaceful family and society in his book, Xiao Jing, also known as Classic of Xiao. The text was written in 4th-century BCE, showing how filial piety has been a part of Chinese values for a very long time.

However, what does it mean to be filial in the 21st century? How does being filial looked like in the present as compared to the past?

There is no doubt that the concept of filial piety has a significant influence over parenting and parent-child relationship. Parents are concerned that the children today do not practice acts of filial piety despite their constant teaching. Children, on the other hand, are questioning their obedience to parent’s wishes when they are not respected by their parents.

This 2-day camp will take on an active and critical learning approach for both parents and children to rethink what it means to be filial in the 21st century. Using different stimuli and a variety of drama strategies, we aim to inspire respectful, mutual and meaningful discussions with parents and children to explore and establish a shared understanding and practice of filial piety that are essential even today.

Our world is changing and becoming increasingly complex and unsafe. Hence, it is of great importance to help our young to develop practical skills for mindfulness and learn how to cope with the changes as well as become agents for social change.

This 2-day holiday camp will take on a process-oriented approach to engage children in discovering more about themselves and the world that they are living in. Using the chosen story/ picture as a stimulus, children will use drama tools, such as Role-Play and Creative Movement to explore dramatic play, creating scenarios from the story that will highlight themes relevant to their lives. Through a variety of child led activities, children will explore the use of drama strategies to establish character relationships, understand situations and come up with ideas to solve problems.

There will be a family engagement segment on Day 2, where the parents will be invited to participate alongside with their children to co-create their image of a better world through different artistic mediums.

Our Educational Objectives:

• Engaging children in the process of learning in and through the arts
• Developing children’s imagination and creativity
• Fostering critical thinking and creative problem-solving skills
