Group photo
Before started, all the members that join for this camp will have a group photo session. It took quite a time to arrange the people so that everyone can be seen at the photo. When at photo session, one of the members required all members to show different styles of hand such as normal, Buddhist style, yeah style and others.

After photo session, all the kids sat on the floor according to their group and wait for events to be start while all the parents sat shape like a semi-circle to surrounding the kids.

Sit properly to enjoy the show
First, all the group members need to come in front and shout for their group name with slogan. All I can say was different group having different patterns to present and tell you about their group name with slogan.

After that it will follow by speech from Chairman. Chairman had asked all the kids whether they enjoy in this camp and all the kids answered “Yes” with loudly. At this camp, it has an activity that needs all the kids to put bowl on the head and walk around. This activity emphasize on concentration. If you did not concentrate, then the bowl on your head will fall down. 

Chairman also said that when he was a headmaster, he had met with a student that very concentrate with his study and that kid came up with flying color results. It shows that concentration is one of the success points.

Speech by Chairman
After speech from Chairman, It followed by an appreciation speech by a boy that represent all the kids to thank for all the people that took part in this camp such as teachers, aunts that in charge with their food and others.

After appreciation speech, all the kids came on the stage and dance.

During the camp, all the kids had been giving a thanksgiving card that require them to color and write some words for parents. It was a girl so outstanding and deserve as a winner because she had drawn a family portraits on the back of the card (back of the card is blank) to let everyone know about her family members.

Talk about thanksgiving card
I also impress with this girl as usually when we get a card, we will color it and will not think of draw something at the back of the card. For your information, the little girl is the youngest kid in this camp.

Winner
In this camp, all the kids had been take care well by “caring teacher” or youth so it also has some prize for excellent “caring teachers”. It has 6 winners for different categories such as responsible, caring and so on.

One of the “caring teachers” was having SPM exam but she still managed to find out some time to join for this camp, give a big clap for her. Besides that, it has a “caring teacher” that has big progress as before this he is a shy boy but after join this camp for few times, he become more leadership

Excellent caring teachers
During this camp, all the group activities had been evaluated through the points so the winner will be the highest points. For the group with lowest points will also get the consolation prize. Below is the group photo for winner group.

After talking some words, it’s time to give parents a hug. I can saw that some kids still very shy to hug their parents to show their love. It followed by tea ceremony and made me cannot stop laugh after hearing conversation between my mum and aunt that my mum and aunt sat with each other while my sister and cousin kneel and look like couple that serving tea for their wedding. It’s really a joke. haha…
