Batam Camp (15-17 Nov)
Hai Sing Catholic School


We went to an almost 5-star resort called Harry's Resort to conduct the camp.  Unfortunately for the students, they had to pitch their starry accomodation (night skies with gazillion stars, that is) instead at a beach facing Harry's.  
T
The mass produced pop-up tents looked really easy to rig up but well, the instructors concluded that the Y-generation kids are just too pampered and that hampered most of their progress of a very straight forward task.  

A tent was even missing a structural pole - a long story which the students had to take responsibility for for not having checked their camp equipment thoroughly.  

This calls for spontaneous improvisation from the unfortunate group.  

I'm not sure if they had christianed their makeshift shelter "The Cosy" as a mock response to Harry's.   

Presenting the "summer palace" shelter at the far end of the picture which is structurally more sound than the student tents...

...and the resort rooms which the campers were only granted access near midnight after having made to pitch tents to teach them lessons on teamwork.  It was pure relief for them to be able to sleep on proper beds in the end!
