Introduction

 ODAC (OutDoor Activities Club) was set up to promote awareness and appreciation of the outdoors. Our focus is in 3 main areas: outdoor education, environmental education, and the spirit of adventure.
 
     ODAC has organized overnight camps in school as well as public parks in our outdoor programmes.  Nature walks and treasure hunts in Tampines Eco Green, Pasir Ris Park and Bukit Timah Nature Reserve have been conducted as part of values-in-action education and development of a sense of belonging to our environment .
 
     These outdoor activities aim to increase the pupils’ knowledge and awareness about the outdoor world and develop their skills to address challenges in a changing environment. We encourage pupils to develop attitudes to make informed decisions and take responsible action in the face of these challenges.
 
    Our focus is to use outdoor experience to foster the whole child’s willingness to try out new things and take calculated risks to appreciate the world around them.
