Summer holidays are inching nearer and nearer as temperatures rise in the city. If you’re looking for educational activities for your little ones to engage in during the holidays, why not sign them up for a summer camp?

Introducing Guidepost Hong Kong, one of the largest networks of institutions in the world offering top-notch Montessori programmes that favour children’s natural interests over formal methods of teaching. Read more to find out why Guidepost is our go-to for creative and fun summer camps for kids and what’s on offer for summer 2023.
Guidepost offers a selection of quality educational programmes for children that put an emphasis on hands-on learning and encourages the development of real-world skills. From infants and toddlers to primary schoolers, Guidepost’s curricula are taught using the Montessori method, which sees children as naturally enthusiastic about learning and curates a supportive and encouraging environment for them to learn in.
The Montessori method is also extended to Guidepost’s variety of summer camps, which includes local and aboard courses across a spectrum of activities and educational opportunities that aim to help the holistic development of your child.
With the Mini Makers programme, your little ones can create to their hearts’ content! A range of crafting and DIY workshops will be held over a week-long period, where children will work on designing and making a finished product with their peers. If your little one loves to tinker or bring crafty ideas to life with their own hands, this is for them! Sign up here.
