It’s that time of year again, where Christmas is around the corner and the school holidays are just weeks away. While most children take this opportunity to sleep in late or catch up with their friends outside of school, it is also a good time to sharpen their skills and hobbies. Many educational and art centres as well as associations in Kuala Lumpur are now offering various programmes for children to explore. From science and robotics to sports, why not get involved with holiday camps in and around Kuala Lumpur? Here’s a few different types of camps that piqued our interest.
The EMS School Break Camp is designed to keep children active while learning English. There are three separate age-appropriate programmes available – for ages 6 to 8, ages 9 to 12 and ages 13 to 15. Programmes for the younger age group focuses on the basics like grammar, reading, creative writing, and storytelling skills while the elder children get involved in clubs, such as debate, drama, poetry, and book clubs.
