Forget enrichment classes, these kids learn life skills by climbing trees and spotting snakes
"Our daughter loves her weekly nature session with Nature Explorers School. She looks forward to it every week.
We used to go for nature walks on our own every week but she was not very inspired. Jenson and his team managed to bring out her enthusiasm about nature. They make nature a fun thing for the kids and at the same time teach them to respect and care for Mother Earth.
Jenson and his team are patient and respectful. They listen to the children and responds in kind. My wife and I really appreciate this.
If you’re looking for an interesting way to expose your child to nature, then Nature Explorers School is definitely the way to go."- Larry Toh
"In many ways, nature has been and will always be the best teacher. Jenson and his crew do a great job as guardians of a child-led, positive and safe environment, helping grow their confidence and allowing the children to explore and blossom in their own way. Love the energy of the group too!" - Joe Lin
"My daughter has attended Nature Explorers School since Aug 2019 and absolutely loves it! She has strengthen her social, physical and dexterity skills, while learning to have fun with nature through activities such as tree climbing and making mud pies :). Highly recommended for all urban overloaded kids!" - Queenie Lee
"NES is the Best enrichment activity any 3 to 5 year old could ask for on a Saturday morning. The experiences gained are life skills that will go a long way. As parents without a bone for adventure or outdoors, we can leave it to the experts at NES to fulfill my daughters fantasies of living the great outdoors (catching bugs, building shelters, navigating a map). The icing on the cake is the bonds formed with her new found friends and coaches who journey with her with guidance, yet giving personal space to grow up appreciating nature and building confidence.
*Bonus to parents thinking about signing up: You will love that it's a drop off programme where they learn to be independent(in a safe environment), while we parents get time off and enjoy exploring breakfast haunts in the southern region of Singapore." - Kevin Fang
"It was a truly magical and enjoyable experience for my boy and his friends. At the end of each day of the camp, he would quipped excitedly to me about his amazing adventures. Jenson and his team of enthusiastic coaches led them through the forest to catch (and release) insects and fishes, hiked through different terrains, explored caves, pitched tents and many more! Needless to say, he wants to be back to ‘play in the forest’ with Nature Explorer. Thank you Jenson and team for making his experience such a memorable one!"- Faith Shen
"To be honest I didn’t know what to expect of this camp. I just thought it’s about exploring the forest. It turns out that it is more than just that. Besides the fact that my girl gets to explore the forest, to learn about the forest, she gets to learn to read a map, use a compass, pitch a tent, whittling a branch stick, exploring pond, learn how to make fire from wood, roasting their food over the fire they make and playing with mud.
She gets dirtier by the day and what Jensen has shared w me was that this program is meant to be child led as well. For the purpose of allowing the kid to learn the way they want it. In normal circumstance I would never allow her to be mud dirty. But this program also kind of taught me to let go of my restrictions and let her fully explore the way it is.
So in my opinion, this is a very good program to participate, definitely for the child but also for myself (the parent)." - Sebrina Tan
"Every child is born a natural explorer. Activities like this camp keep that part of their exploration and self-discovery alive. Something which is immensely missing in this tech-infused world. My son attended the camp in Dec 2020 and thoroughly enjoyed himself. Best part was playing in the rain and learning to build a fire for him. He’s looking forward to the next one." - Cheryl Ganeson
"I almost never write reviews, but would recommend Jenson and team with great pleasure. The 3-day Dec camp that our 3.5 y.o. joined rained everyday, but it made going outdoors that much more special. Especially with coaches who over-deliver on almost every aspect. It looked so fun that like another parent said, it makes us want to join the camp ourselves!" - Hwei Lee
"Yoan’s December 2019 Highlight
Just 1 month shy of his 4th birthday, he trekked, he climbed, he searched, he puddled, he muddied. He tied, he hammered, he pitched, he built, he chilled, he listened, he daydreamed, he wandered, he trooped, he roasted. He ate, he drank, he laughed & he made new friends!
Amazing fun 3 days outdoor frolicking in the rain with Nature Explorers School. What a wonderful experience! It is such a treat for children to bask in the joys of Mother Earth. I hope Baby brother Anton can do this soon too." - Janice Ang
"My 4 year old had so much fun on their 3 day holiday camp. Everyday felt like an adventure for her and she had the opportunity to be exposed to nature and its elements. From learning how to pitch a tent, starting a fire, catching tadpoles to wood whittling, these are things that she would not learn in a normal classroom setting. I would highly recommend this programme!" - Bernice Lim
"My boy only had good things to tell me about his 3-day NES Camp experience. He was very excited talking about his first tent-building experience, the new friends he made, and he especially enjoyed roasting his food over fire :-D
Thanks NES for giving him such a memorable outdoor experience!" - See Hearn
