Garden Troopers – My Outdoor Adventures Workshop Review and Giveaway!

Spread the love

Calling all parents and children! If you love nature and want to spend a meaningful holiday this November, look out for the workshops for children specially organised by Gardens by the Bay! 

There are two workshops available for different age groups. Ist workshop, My Outdoor Adventures is for kids aged 10 to 12 years old and 2nd workshop, Green Encounters is for kids aged 7 to 9 years old where the younger children can be a Junior Horticulturist, learn more about a variety of ‘green gems’ at the Gardens through hands-on activities and exciting games! To find more about Green Encounters, please click HERE

We joined the older children group for 10 to 12 years old, “Garden Troopers – My Outdoor Adventures” Workshop earlier in June to find out more. This workshop is a 2 full day programmes with meal and tea breaks provided. 



The programme started off with a briefing and followed by ice breaker games where children get to know their team members better.

After a tea break, the garden troopers went over to Flower Dome to start an exciting day of learning interesting facts about some of the key plant families in the Gardens and children were taught how to recognise and identify common characteristics that make them a family! 



Children had the opportunity to get hands-on working on the tasks given after an introduction given by the friendly and knowledgeable instructor. Mentors were also assigned to help and guide the children in their quests to find the answers for their tasks and to provide clarifications if any. 


Moving on from Flower Dome, children get to visit Cloud Forest to learn more about plants in the colder climate.



After a lunch break, children continue their learning about insects where they get to observe and find out more about fascinating insects found at the Gardens.


It’s time to move outdoors to Fragile Forest & Wild Flower Field where they were brought on an educating tour by Garden’s gardener host to look for butterflies and learn about the special relationship between these gentle creatures and the plants they love. 

Children were advised to bring their hats, sunglasses (optional), apply insect repellents and water bottles before they moved outdoors. 


Children get hands-on to do planting. 



Children have the opportunity to plant their very own butterfly-attracting plant after the tea break and take home their unique masterpiece!

After a fulfilling and exciting Day 1, children headed home with their own plant. Our boy has always been interested in Science and he likes to learn plants, insects and their habitats. He thoroughly enjoyed the workshop and he can’t wait to attend Day 2 of the workshop the next day. 


The children started off Day 2 learning and taking a closer look at the world of feathered friends. They even get to pick up useful tips on bird-watching. Next, they moved on to investigate and find out more about the mysterious drop in the dragonfly population and the importance to save them before it is too late. Towards the later part of the workshop, kids get into their own group to create an ‘animal superhero’. Each of the group put on their creative hats, apply their imagination to create their animal superhero and think of what superpowers, their creation has to save the environment. After creating their ‘animal superhero’, each group will get the present and determine which group is the most creative.


After the tea break, children will now apply what they have learnt from the workshop and put them into practice. Children were given an opportunity to create a nature journal, given a binoculars for animal-spotting and to monitor the health of the environment. 


At the end of Day 2 workshop, there was a prize presentation from the points accumulated during the two days workshop, everyone get to bring home a prize. Overall, it has been a very interesting and educating workshop, children are able to get up close and learn so much about the nature, plants and animals. Best of all, they bring back abundant knowledge, special memories of Gardens by the Bay and it is a good way to spend a meaning holiday!
