By Jenny Leung 27 February 2017

And let's face it, more free time means more opportunity for boredom to kick in, so to help you keep them engaged on the educational side, while still letting them have heaps of fun, we check out some of the best kids' Easter camps around town.

Born in Hong Kong and raised in the UK, Jenny grew up with the best of both worlds. She loves just about anything to do with music and doesn’t shy away from belting out a tune or two when it comes to karaoke. If she’s not out and about exploring the city and practising her photography skills, she’s probably tucked up in bed with a book or glued to her laptop doing her online shopping.
