GEMS Camp – General English & Mathematics in Singapore (Holiday Programme)

SSTC is a pioneer in holiday programmes in Singapore.

Every year, groups of students from around the Asian region such as Thailand, Laos, Indonesia, Vietnam and even as far as Mongolia and Russia come to SSTC for the GEMS (General English & Mathematics in Singapore) Camp.

Enjoy learning with exciting GEMS lessons right in the comfort of our classrooms.  Afterwards, it is time to experience Singapore’s multicultural sights, flavours and sounds, and to delight at the harmony of traditions and modernity in the Lion City.

There are also other essentials covered to help make your stay in Singapore memorable and hassle-free ranging from meals, accommodations, transportation and tickets to the hottest attractions around.

This school holiday, come and experience Singapore–to learn interesting things, to meet new friends and to have lots of fun…. at the SSTC GEMS Camp!
