The Mindful Camp Mission
Establish an inviting setting where children can learn and grow through play.
It is an approach to paying attention to and seeing everything that is going on in our lives. It supports acknowledging and separating ourselves from habitual, unconscious emotional, and physiological reactions to everyday events. This means responding to life more calmly and cultivating clarity, insight, and understanding.
Insight meditation enables us to be fully present in our lives and work, improving our quality of life. This ability to direct one’s attention toward one’s intention aids in stimulating volition and willpower. Over time, one will also develop greater self-awareness and a greater understanding of their mental habits.
Play is an essential component of a child’s development. Playtime allows children to express their feelings, thoughts, and abilities in a safe environment, encouraging them to learn about friendship. Children will be exposed to various experiences involving sharing, cooperating, listening to others, handling arguments, and recognizing the perspectives of others. Play promotes healthy habits in children by actively applying them in their environment, resulting in stronger and happier individuals.
Since 2013, The Mindful Camp has organized thousands of young campers from local and international schools, as well as from outside of Singapore, for fun, enriching, and safe camp experiences.
