SAFRA is pulling out all the stops to make the upcoming March holidays an amazing one!

By Sean Yee        4 March 2024

It feels like only yesterday we were just tossing our yushengs. While it may be time to put our chopsticks down, that doesn’t mean the fun has to end! With the March school holidays on the horizon, SAFRA has prepared a whole fiesta of holiday camps and workshops for everyone to enjoy.

Here, we cover (almost) everything SAFRA has to offer for kids and parents alike looking to make the best of this well-deserved break!

FUNquatics 2024 @ SAFRA Tampines

Nothing beats a trip down to the swimming pool on a hot day. Taking it one step further, SAFRA Tampines has prepared for you and your kids an experiential variety of different aquatic activities to try out during the March holidays. In addition to trial swimming sessions by Yale Swimming Singapore, there will also be Flippa Ball beginner classes by Singapore Aquatics, Aqua Fitness sessions by Swimology and Stand Up Paddleboarding. And if you do need a break from the adrenaline, seek out the Inflatable Bouncy Castle for some buoyant fun. And from 12pm to 1pm, enjoy complimentary snacks from the food booths (limited to the first 100 redemptions)!

9 March 2024, from 9am to 3pm at SAFRA Tampines

School’s Out, Fun’s In @ SAFRA Yishun

With art and craft workshops aplenty, this one-day celebration is like a huge canvas where your kid can flourish with just a bit of creativity. 

Stop by the Mask Colouring Corner before anything else to collect your complimentary Animal Mask colouring set. See what your kids can come up with armed with just a set of markers and an animal mask template! For something less conventional, your child can partake in Window Wonders, a window art craft workshop that utilises glue and watercolour paints. After that, you and your kid can let off steam by having a go at the Light Cycle and pedal the day away on Tron-inspired bikes.

And exclusively for SAFRA members, there will be a Munch Haven packed with snacks like seaweed chicken bites, popcorn and cotton candy. You’ll also get to take part in the Eggstravaganza Word Scramble, a playful brain teaser that’ll reward the first 100 SAFRA members who get the correct answer with a limited edition SAFRA Yishun towel! 

16 March 2024, from 10am to 4pm at SAFRA Yishun

Dinoland Rangers Adventure

You know what makes camping even more fun? Camping with dinosaurs! 

Dinoland is hosting a 2D1N camp that is packed with thematic activities, experiential trails, and plenty of role-playing opportunities. As a participant, your kid will be a Dinoland ranger initiate, and he or she will have to complete 8 missions in order to get his or her ranger certification!

And these missions are definitely not meant to be walks in the park. The intrepid rangers will be sent up close to the colossal reptiles to conduct their investigative and surveillance work. From fossil building and tentage setups to treasure hunts and hiking in the dark, this whimsical adventure will sate your kid’s desire for adventure and more! Once they’re seasoned enough, they’ll even get to “ride” these dinosaurs, and have photos taken as souvenirs of their exciting experience. 

11-12 March or 13 – 14 March 2024 at SAFRA Yishun

SAFRA members enjoy 10% off camp fees. For more info on the camp’s itinerary and fees, go to dinoland.com.sg/adventurecamp

Parent-Child Baking Sessions with SHATEC

Always wanted to learn baking but was too busy with the kids? You’re in luck! A professional instructor from SHATEC will be at SAFRA Punggol this March holidays to impart his wisdom to not just you, but to your kid as well. This parent-child baking workshop will have you working closely alongside your child to concoct sweet and adorable-looking treats.

Aspiring bakers can opt for either the Melon Pan, a sweet Japanese bread with cross-hatched carvings or Daifuku, a mochi-like stuffed confection. Better yet, go for both!

BMT Kids Camp @ SAFRA Yishun

SAFRA Yishun’s BMT-inspired kids’ camp returns once more. The 3D2N Basic Military Training Children’s Edition (BMTCE) will focus on NS favourites like military drills and songs and outdoor cooking, and show young recruits how to survive in the great outdoors as they pitch tents, build bashas, and pick up basic navigation skills. And like any soldier, they will also learn self-defence skills that will not only help build confidence, but character as well. 

It’s a rare opportunity for your kids to step out of their comfort zone and see the world anew during the March holidays!
