This is a very late post, I didn’t think of posting it up but since I am in NS right now, I’ll share something up on my blog. On last December, 2009, I attended 3D2N children camp organized by Foyi, a Buddhist society. The camp is also Buddhism-related. Foyi collaborated with Leo Club of Chung Ling High School to make this camp and it’s already 11th camp already.
I was there too in 2008.
Actually I didn’t sign up as helper or in their committee. I went there voluntary, it happened on the weekend before last SPM paper, Chinese. I was playful and didn’t want to spent so much time reading and by that time, I already didn’t have much feel for reading already, so I went to check out their camp, volunteer help for them. Haha. Is that the reason of me getting C for Chinese? I don’t think so. LOL
Since I didn’t tell them I would be there, they didn’t expect me to come and help, and so there’s no name tag and cert for me. But that’s OK, I made myself a tag at there with marker pen and I gave myself a post as 校长, Principal. LOL. It’s just for fun but I was in one of the group too, as helper, caretaker, teacher, taking care of the kids. The year before, I was MC, so I didn’t join in much fun with the group, but I decided to have a change this year. They did ask me to be MC again, but I rejected, because I’ve no feel for it and I couldn’t be there all the time.
I went there morning and went home at night. I didn’t overnight at there. There’s only 2 Form 5 people, me and Min Xiang, others were just preparing for SPM Chinese paper I guess. They had a lot of fun games, learning, performances, talks and many many thing.
First day, I didn’t stay long. I only really start helping out on the second day, helping Crystal, Jin Sheng and Kitsuki Yeoh, my team’s other helpers. =D
When I arrived on the second days, they had already started playing games. Games was a little bit same as the year before, but there’s something different too. Most interesting was still splashing water to each other. I have no idea why children/youth camp love water so much.
Wash plate with Kelvin.
What they did on the second day is playing games and preparing for night’s performance. There’s a performance show at night and parents of kids were invited to come see. We had to prepare either a dance or a sketch to promote so
mething, an item, then will let people to guess what we were promoting. It’s like making an advertisement.
As for my group, we did a dance to promote towel and I choreographed part of the dance. Since then, I only knew that dancing and choreographing is so hard.
Another show for the night was fashion show which was about making something cool out of newspaper. Some of the helpers had already prepared water color and blings blings for it. I only knew about it that afternoon, if I had knew it earlier, I would brought more thing for my team. =D
Everyone was busy that afternoon. I was choreographing the dance in a short time. Fun and tired! One things, all meals for the 3 days were vegetarian! Not bad also I would say. ^^
Preparing the stage for night performance.
Stay tune, next would be the night performance.
