Makati City—April 16, 2018—At an early age, a child displays different abilities and natural skills when going through their daily activities. As they go through early childhood development, kids also become more enthusiastic and vocal about their interests and activities that they want to try.
As such, parents are always on the lookout for other avenues outside school and home, where their kids can explore these interests and develop their full potentials. After all, these potentials can turn into gifts and talents when properly nurtured.
This is the objective of the PROMIL® Four i-Shine Talent Camp 6. As a talent development program, crafted by experts, it aims to enjoin parents in nurturing their child’s gift and helping them realize their full potential. Now in its sixth season, it consists of camps in different fields, such as arts, engineering, music, and dance.
This year, these camps will be under the mentorship of expert mentors. Maestro Ryan Cayabyab returns as the camp master who will lead the Music Camp. These workshops
will focus on both singing and basic choreography as well as give kids the chance to play instruments assigned to them.
Maestro Cayabyab said that despite that fact that music is deeply ingrained in our DNA, it also needs to be discovered and nurtured, just like any other talents.
Meanwhile, Teacher Robert Alejandro and his team from Papemelroti will handle the Art Camp. These set of workshops are more extensive than the previous i-Shine® Talent Camps because this time, it will be composed of 10 art sessions.
“This is the first time we’re doing this. That is very unusual to do. We will be sketching, painting, and even sculpturing. There is going to be a whole lot of fun learning experience for the kid given the sessions we have planned,” said Alejandro.
Aside from these classes, the camp also features a new set of workshops, focused on Engineering. It will be led by Teacher Lei Sta. Maria of Engineering for Kids.
“I am a believer of multiple intelligence and with every kid, their interests should be tap. Like for the Engineering Class, you don’t just tap their academic skills, it’s not just about math or science. It’s really about working with others—it develops people skills and finding their confidence,” she added.
Also returning to the iShine Talent Camp 6 is celebrity choreographer, Georcelle Sy of G-Force Dance School, who will mentor the participants in the Dance Camp.
“This is what I love about this collaboration. You get to see the common denominators among the mentors. It’s really about mentoring and nurturing the gift of the children,” said Georcelle Sy.
Teacher Georcelle noted that parents are becoming more interested in enrolling their kids in the camp since they want their kids to explore on things that they have not touched on yet. For instance, some parents sign up their child in her dance class to tap on the skill and to know if they can nurture it.
The PROMIL® Four i-Shine® Talent Camp 6 is now open for enrollment. Kids, ages three to 11 years old may join the camp, which will run from April 2 to May 3, 2018. It will be conducted in different locations in Metro Manila and will be concluded through a recital on May 11, 2018, where the participants of all four workshops will perform.
The PROMIL Four i-Shine® Talent Camp 6 will also visit key cities in Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao via roadshows to allow children outside Metro Manila to experience the thrill of the workshops. You can visit www.ishine.ph for more information.
Since its inception, the PROMIL® Four i-Shine® Talent Camp helped discover and nurture the young Filipinos’ gift in partnership with parents. It is initiated by PROMIL® Four, a milk brand, specially formulated for children above three years old. It is also the only brand that contains NUTRISSENTIALS®—the combination of the unique and important nutrients that help support mental and physical development to help Nurture the Gift, together with balanced diet and healthy lifestyle.
