Sec 3 OBS Camp
The 5 days and 4 nights I spent at the OBS were extremely challenging and yet I had the best camping experience ever.
After getting to know my watch-mates on the first day, we went straight into packing our expedition bags for our backpacking journey. We trekked to the second campsite on the second day and I got to try high elements for the first time.
The most challenging part of this camp was our sea expedition, in which 4 watchers had to kayak around Pulau Ubin. Thankfully, even though a lot of us got seasick, we endured the scorching hot sun and managed to make it to our destination at around 4pm.
Through this camp experience, I have learnt to endure and have become more resilitent. The way in which we had to tackle each obstacle and having to do them without the comforts of home taught me that life could be so much more difficult. I definitely learnt the importance of appreciating the privileges I have and not to take them for granted. By Yeong Si Han (Class 3-7)
