Camp Magic was founded in Singapore over 18 years ago. We were originally a summer program only (June/July). However, many of our customers asked about December, saying that it was the perfect time for their children to take a break from school curriculums and immerse their minds and bodies in the playful, creative programs that we offer. And so our second schedule of holiday fun - Solstice - was born in 2011. Although we continue to work with stories each week (that IS the Camp Magic trademark!), the Solstice adventure focuses on the natural world in different countries and cultures. This year we are delighted to introduce to you Trees Please! A wonderful way for your child to break from school while enrolling fully into the fascination of tree tales, the pleasure of performance, the cultivation of skill through circus, the playfulness of art and music, and yes... even SOCCER for those who love to chase a ball, shoot, and score! Camp Magic Solstice has something for everyone. Read on below to learn about how are programs are designed, and check out our Theme, Calendar, Activities, Crew, and Location.
PERFORMANCE The Friday performance provides the camp community with a common goal - creating a supportive, lively experience for the children. We invite the parents to attend each Friday afternoon show so that they too can enjoy all that has been explored! The children are also given an opportunity to experience performance throughout the week by working artists and professionals. This gives the children lots of encouragement and models techniques presented in the program.

ART AND CRAFT Working with our hands provides a wonderful contrast to the multiple gross motor activities the children partake in at Camp Magic.Art and Craft furnishes children with an inner place to reflect and ponder. The program activities mirror the story of the week - awarding the children with continued freedom to amplify their connection to the story and Friday's performance.
STORYTELLING Story, as you've probably guessed, is at the very core of what we do. Each week a story adventure is introduced on Monday. Throughout the week, the story is woven throughout the camp in all the main activities. Folktales, myths, stories - new and old - open a child's world to boundless opportunities, imagination, culture, and the inner workings of our minds eye. Children love story there is no doubt about that. The form of storytelling we work with at Camp Magic is interactive. This gives the children a platform to have voice throughout a story presentation, and gives them a place to further develop their own confidence for public speaking.

BAKING We introduced baking and food prep at Camp Magic 10 years ago. We aim at each program to have some time preparing things to eat and share with others.December Solstice will be no different. Each Thursday children will have an opportunity to bake delicious cupcakes for eating after our Friday morning Carnivale. YUM!
DRUMMING AND RHYTHM We have an incredible variety of drums and percussion instruments available to the children. While only one group will perform with drums and rhythm each week, all children have access to percussion instruments and drums at different times throughout the program. Parents also have a chance to try out the drums at our Friday Hoopla and Performance! This is a real favourite with both Moms and Dads.
MUSIC Music is everywhere at Camp Magic. We play it in group rooms each morning, throughout story performances, and at end of week shows. There is no escaping music at Camp Magic!One group in our first week will have the opportunity to play the Uke in our Friday performance. We have used the Ukulele regularly for the past 8 years. It is a perfect entrance level instrument. Simple and easy to play a few basic notes and songs. Also the size makes it easy for children to hold and play!
CIRCUS Circus takes what seems impossible and makes it possible. It boosts confidence, utilizes movement, develops unique skills, increases hand/eye coordination to name only a few. We introduced circus to our program 11 years ago, and haven't looked back. It has continuously provided children of all ages with so much joy and enthusiasm for learning. For our upcoming Solstice we are once again fortunate to have Shaheen and Shouniez back with us to help train the children with hoops, poi, spinning cloths and acro balance. Spinning plates, juggling, stilt walking, unicycling, and diabolo are also regular features in our playground circus area.
