A 5-Day Camp for Youths

A Think x Rainbow Youth Wellbeing Champion Initiative

This program is an inclusive experience for all kids of age 7-9 (neurodivergent or neurotypical), to connect with and express their creativity through a holistic combination of robotics, the arts and storytelling.

This multidisciplinary collaboration is a chance for your child to design and build their own RC robot car, completely from scratch. Whether they want to build a Sports Car, a Monster Truck or a Convertible, they will have the freedom and support to bring their own ideas to life.

It is a chance for them to build a machine with their bare hands, learn electronics and real-world physics through play, and stretch their creative muscles and communication skills through stories.

This 5-day camp is designed by our multidisciplinary team of educators and psychologists, to help kids connect with their creativity, deeply weaving together aspects of emotional regulation and support for their mental and emotional wellbeing. The program also includes a behavioral therapist on standby throughout the whole program, to support kids as and when needed. 

Every child has their own unique gifts, and by supporting them through this holistic experience, we seek to help them discover and find confidence in their own unique strengths and gifts.

Facilitated by a passionate team of educators, there will be activities in mindfulness, self-awareness and emotional regulation, which will deepen the participants’ learning journey and offer a deeper translation of these learnings as creative outcomes through robotics and storytelling.

Recommended for kids age 7-9.

No prior experience needed.

Testimonial 

"ZH had the greatest time with the team of dedicated teachers.

Throughout the program, he was well supported by the team. He had the opportunity to learn not only from experts but also from his peers.

He took away not only technical skills. Importantly, he had the opportunity to learn to be patient with himself, trust the process, give support and receive support from friends and give space to each other throughout the learning process. 

These valuable lessons will help him be a better friend and also aid him to be a life long learner."

- Yip WF (Parent of an 8yo)

“Education is about educating the mind - the whole mind - in young people.
The whole mind comprises left brain + right brain + heart.
We begin by educating the heart - inculcating values & virtues.
Skills to master: compassion, courage, curiosity, commitment and calm - how to be good, empathetic human beings.
Teach kids the laws of harvest - we reap what we sow - and the laws of cause and consequences; teach them how to fish.
Teach them how to learn; make learning fun and joyful (as it should be).
Bringing Silicon Valley / the world into the classroom (create opportunities 
for doing, experimentations, failures and learnings).
Teachers / parents are igniters of the sparks inside our kids.”

About Over-The-Rainbow 

Over-The-Rainbow (OTR) is the mental wellness initiative of the WholeTree Foundation, the not-for-profit family foundation of Yen-Lu & Yee Ling Chow founded in loving memory of their dear son and only child who ended his own life at the age of 26 after suffering for many years from manic depression. 

Since launching in October 2012, OTR has been a pioneer and trailblazer in the space of youth mental wellness - innovating and pushing the mental health envelope with outreach events, community initiatives, media projects, mental wellness programs, workshops and festivals, volunteer training programs, peer support systems, online support platforms, mental wellness magazines, newsletters and social media campaigns. These initiatives and activities collectively have touched nearly a million lives through both online and offline touch-points, and transformed many others.

From an organization that pioneered mental wellness as a journey and championed prevention and preemption over clinical intervention with innovations such as Holistic Self-Care, Circle-of-Care, Guardian Angels, Wellness Space, Mental Wellness Festivals, Youth Matters, OTR Listens, Rainbow Connection magazines, Think x Rainbow, and a change inside-out approach to life and human wellbeing, innovation is a constant driving force for positive change.
