Home Sweet Home....

By now, all of us should be home ~ in the comfort of our own beds.. I am sure everyone miss this. I just got home from my Bak Chor mee at Bedok North.

From the bottom of my heart, I would like to thank everyone in the contingent for making this Camporee a great success. We met all our objectives and also achieved many first from this trip; Did you know that this is the largest group of cub scouts to travel overseas from Singapore Scout Association ?

Not forgetting our friends from WA Scouts that also helped us throughout this journey.. B R A V O !

Time to sleep now... I will post some important pics tomorrow morning to wrap up this memorable trip...


Signing off now,

Yip Ying Kiong

Contingent Leader

Ta, Scouts Australia!

Dear all,

I've just seen the second flight off at the airport, did you see the five of us waving you goodbye?... and will be staying for another week or so.
That's QF71 shortly after take-off

Anyway, here are our final photos, taken at Menjedal, as promised.
Have a good, well-deserved rest after you land...

Good Bye Australia!

After packing up, there's only one thing left to do - get to the airport! But enroute, we stopped by at the Scout Shop to buy some badges, shirts and stuff before proceeding to Harbour Town for lunch.

There after, we were off to check in!
See you in Singapore!

G'day, Singapore

Hi all again

We are in the last day of our camp, our Aussie friends has left us on Sunday as they are back to school and work.. they had a very tiring weekend hosting us and indeed it has been a very fun, enjoyable and memorable time for everyone

The facilities in the Camp for the outdoor activities is truly marvelleous.. We will post more pics to back track what happened the last 2 days.. Apologies for the delay telecast but we want everyone to enjoy the stations.. and "all hands on deck" for the adult leaders to watch over safety..

We went to Fremantle for our excursion... the contingent is splitted into the units and they are free to roam in this historic town ~ filled with Museums ( Maritime, Shipwreck, Motor..) the old prisons, lookout into the Indian Ocean and not to forget the fresh seafood for meals...

More update as we can hooked up the cyberspace !

Archery is a hot favourite...very addictive, so no matter how many times the Cubs have done it, they'd like to have a go at it again. DSC_0066 This station is the only one run by Leaders from Singapore. Mr Desmond is the expert who is trained and licensed by MOE CCAB to conduct Archery sessions, so like all other stations, safety is key and observed by all instructors.DSC_0058DSC_0056 DSC_0063 DSC_0069



Tunnels Confidence Course


Rockla underground tunnels! The Cubs planned their routes before entering a network of tunnels, and exit through special safety hatches (or man-holes) along the way when they find one.DSC_0028

This must be one of the most exciting stations. Something we do not have in Singapore. Instructors were at each hatch to check on Cubs that pass-by or decide to exit there. The Cubs reported that it was scary at first, but when they got used to crawling in the small space, it was too fun to miss. Many even wanted to have a go at it again, using a different route!




As always, safety is paramount and all procedures are adhered to strictly.
