Welcome to the Singapore Cuboree: Camp Possible 2013!
Cuboree started at nine for the camp staff,I was feeling very happy as it was a five day camp! This is long compared to the usual 3 day camps we normally hold.Once we were there,we were told to set up the large and heavy gazebos, we had to set up 14 gazebos and carry them to the designated areas.It did a fast job of making us tired quickly.
Few more to go!
We had our scrumptious lunch first before continuing to set up the tents,it was really vigorous and time consuming.
Our dinner was next and then followed by the camp staff briefing. After the briefing, we did admin work as well as packing the goody bags for the cubs till very late. We showered and then hit the hay
The cuboree official starts on day 1 and the cubs began to pour in from 8am it was a long and tiring work but also really fun since we could interact and make new friends with the cubs.
Everybody is coming in with smiles on their faces!

First on the list was the open house where the cubs' parents can come to visit and see what the camp was about,there were many activities such as rock climbing, selling of ice cream and drinks and so on.

After the open house was a scrumptious dinner. The open ceremony cum campfire was next and the was a great deal of fun and happiness for the cubs as well as the staff members.
Mystifying Campfire opening!

After that, we had subcamp activities carried out by the subcamp chiefs and supervised by us. Lastly was shower time for the cubs and then lights off. The staff member stayed up to have our staff meeting and then finally at last, we were allowed to turn in for the night.
It will be a really fun and exciting day as the cubs can go for a outing! They went on a quest named the Power of the elements! There were five powers which are-Fire,Wind, Earth, Water and lastly Heart!
Sentosa Underwater World!
After they came back, it's was time for the cubs to shower and have their dinner. The cubs once again have their subcamp activities and then they hit the hay.
Today was the almost the same as day 2, we had farm adventures instead of the power of the elements. After the cubs came back, then had their shower followed by their dinner. Closing ceremony came next, it was really fun! Again, we had the subcamp activities and then a good nights rest.
It was really mundane for the cubs and us is because all we had to do was to strike the tents as well as clean up. The cubs had their last debrief and ten, then it's home away! The staff continued to do the last clean up and then it's also home away for us! Overall it was a very fun camp, it had taught me things like coordination, cooperation and many other invaluable lessons.
