Side notes of what inspired this camp series:

Cher V had always loved outdoor and bringing learners out of the classroom during school holidays. She had brought quite a number of her students to nature trails. From the recently popular jurong line in Clementi woods, to Alishan trail in Taiwan. She doubles up as a facilitator, and a guide, and somewhat a supporter for the younger ones to ensure safety and yet trust them to go through certain obstacles. It takes a little bit of patience(to pace the kid), a little bit of trust(to give space for them to walk through the whole journey on their own), and a little bit of luck (weather and sightings of unique stuffs including meteor shower). The whole motive is to allow every single individual to explore and be a little different from themselves when enveloped by nature instead of the stiffening concrete jungle.

Treks were strictly offered for her students before. However. Covid 19 had pushed her to open up to the public, and create an Earth camp series for awareness and appreciation of mother Earth herself. With so much changes to the tempo of the lifestyle in 2020, and the coping mechanism within the young minds of how much had changed. Perhaps, a short trip down to absorb some vitamin D from the Sun may help improve their spirits.

As an educator, and a sister of the Forest School Singapore, Cher V knows that nature had a unique way of balancing our inner thoughts and emotions. Likewise, they are the best teacher we can learn from. With her [mother nature] wealth of knowledge, and with Cher V’s facilitation, we hope that the participants will learn beyond their textbooks and invoke the little ‘Newton’ in them.
