Founded 17 years ago in Sin­ga­pore, Camp Magic is a mul­ti­di­men­sional pro­gramme based on the be­lief that a child’s imag­i­na­tion is ac­ti­vated through a va­ri­ety of ac­tiv­i­ties and ex­pe­ri­ences. Each week kicks off with a crew per­for­mance that mod­els cir­cus, mu­sic, com­edy, singing and story. Chil­dren are in­tro­duced to a new story ev­ery Mon­day and the com­pre­hen­sive weekly pro­gram is then built around this tale. The range of ac­tiv­i­ties in­cludes art, craft, pup­petry, cir­cus skills, song “bak­ing” and map mak­ing, and each Fri­day there is a com­mu­nity per­for­mance. “Camp Crew” fa­cil­i­ta­tors are trained artists and per­form­ers who have pre­vi­ous ex­pe­ri­ence work­ing with chil­dren and re­ceive in­ten­sive train­ing prior to ev­ery camp. Many fam­i­lies at­tend mul­ti­ple camp weeks, as there is plenty of di­ver­sity from week to week.
