What Our Students Are Saying

What Our Students Are Saying

I think robots are so cool. It was a great opportunity to work with my team to program our own robot.

What Our Students Are Saying

I always thought of robotics and coding as something that would be too difficult for me, or that I would have to study for a very long time, but our teachers had us programming our robots on the first day. The teachers were great, they always encouraged us and made us feel we can do anything.

image image

What Our Students Are Saying

I was really impressed with how accessible the teachers made the content. Teaching the sciences can be one of the most difficult subjects but the teachers did a great job of breaking it down into small accomplishable tasks to boost students' confidence.

image image

What Our Students Are Saying

I had so much fun, I think my robot was number one. I hope that I can come back again next year.

What Our Students Are Saying

In my country science class is usually boring, we never get to do anything fun, just read text books or listen to our teachers, this week we are always doing something. It is so different, I had a lot of fun and I think I learned a lot. When I get home I am going to keep studying programming.

    FAQs

    Yes, it is compulsory. Our terms and conditions require you/ students buy comprehensive travel insurance covering overseas medical expenses and contents. We will ask for proof of such insurance policies from you for all students prior to accepting them to our camp.

    Students should pack clothes appropriate for the weather in the destination city during the holiday camps. Note that London could be chilly all year round, so always bring something warm, just in case. Students should also pack at least one set of formal wear/shoes for the Finale Night. Students are recommended to bring a hoodie or light jacket as classrooms are often air-conditioned and sometimes students may feel cold. Students are also recommended to bring comfortable walking shoes as students will do a lot of walking in destination cities. In an effort to reduce our carbon footprint we also ask students to bring refillable water bottles that they can carry with them on excursions. Our destination countries may have differently shaped power outlets and voltages than your home country. Students should bring a power adapter along with whatever other chargers or electronic devices they may need. We also recommend students to pack props which they may want to use in their Talent Show.

    Our students have a full programme of classes and activities, and as such we know where they are. At night time, we will also have checking procedure to make sure all students are in their rooms.

    Yes, we will provide 24/7 emergency number to your camp escorting teachers/ adults and students.

    All students and their activities are covered under our public liability insurance. At the same time, all students attending BlueSky camp are required to buy comprehensive travel insurance which cover overseas medical expenses, personal content etc…

    Students will be attended at all time by your own escorting teachers/ adults, as well as our camp managers and facilitators. Our hostels are typically equipped with surveillance system and guards. Students are not allowed to be out after 10:00pm.

    Yes, all of our meal providers are able to meet any dietary needs. Please fill in the health information form attached in our student registration form.

    Boys and girls will be placed in separate rooms. They could be on different floors or on the same floor. Typically escorting teachers/adults may stay on the same floor as students for easy group control, and on-site staff regularly check to make sure students are safe and in their rooms.

    Depending on the allocation of hostels and classrooms, classes and hostels may be at the same university or school, or otherwise.

    Our Camp Facilitators are trained to run fun-filled team-building activities. Debriefing after the activities will help students to understand main leadership & team-building learning points.

    We have a carefully selected list of attractions at destination cities to give students a chance to get to know the city, as well as to visit educational centres, historical monuments and museums. Visits to famous universities and college campuses have also inspired our students to strive for academic excellence.

    Check out our photo galleries to see our participants in action, and see our detailed schedule for the full course details.

    Yes, Blue Sky staff operate according to Child Safeguarding laws and best practice. Students will be supervised at all times with staff staying in the same accommodation as our students. Additionally, group leaders accompanying students will also stay in the same accommodation to ensure appropriate cover.

    All courses will offer a minimum of 12 hours of cultural workshop lessons or Leadership and Public Speaking classes per week.

    Maximum class-size is 25 students in Singapore and Sydney camps, and 20 students in London camps.

    Our students generally come from all over the world. Naturally, for Singapore and Australia camps, more students from the Asia Pacific region are expected due to their geographical locations.

    Yes, students will receive a certificate of completion if their attendance is at least 90% of classes. We require students to attend all classes, except due to health reasons.

    It's not unusual for children, especially younger ones away from home for the first time, to feel homesick the first few days. Most get over it quickly and go on to have a wonderful time. We provide structure and keep campers busy from the moment they arrive, which helps to shift their focus away from home to new friends and having fun. By the end of the first week, the routine is familiar and the homesickness has passed for the majority of campers.

    Yes, they are allowed to call parents during the evening before bed and if there is an emergency. We encourage both parents and students to not be in constant contact throughout the day as it is distracting from their lessons and activities.

    In all our years of running programmes, we have never suffered a major incident. In the course of outdoor activities, our staff are trained in first aid and will always try to prevent accidents like knee scrapes and falls.

    BlueSky is insured by public liability insurance but for individual students they should purchase their own travel and medical insurance. A detailed policy schedule is available at https://www.bluesky-education.com/policy.html.

    At every camp we will have at least one trained first aider who will be present on site and during all activities and excursions. In the dormitories, our staff conduct regular checks throughout the day and night, with a roll count in the morning and before lights out.

    Our participants range from 7 to 18 years old, and we will pair them up by similar age and gender.

    Participants should be able to communicate in basic English and are able to move around easily within the campus. Note that some campuses are not wheelchair friendly. They should also have individual travel documents with at least 6 months validity, and possess the relevant visas for entry into the respective countries. Please see the country pages for more information.
