SENTUL, KUALA LUMPUR - On these two auspicious days, the 12th Kuala Lumpur Boys’ Brigade and 3rd Kuala Lumpur Girls’ Brigade had an inaugural joint brigade camp in Wesley Methodist School Kuala Lumpur.
Day 1, Friday 12th July
All participants and facilitators registered before school lessons were over. Everyone gathered at 4 p.m. in the school hall for the opening ceremony. There were 16 teams altogether; the teams’ names were selected from Marvel or DC comic characters. It started with the facilitators and teachers-in-charge introducing themselves. Then, Madam Chia Loy Tian, the school principal gave the opening speech. Soon, it was time for the icebreaking sessions. We got to know each other through many interesting activities.
Afterwards, the mystery games began. The facilitators acted as the casts of the game. It was about the head of a family which was monopolizing a rich business. Soon after, he and some of his family members were murdered. All teams had to search for clues and write a short summary of what they thought and who could be the killer using our problem solving skills. It was scary at times, as we could feel the intensity at the crime scene and one could feel the murderer was around. That made it all the more enthralling. After 2 hours of investigation, all the teams came out with their various conclusions on who is the real culprit. The results of the game were announced the following day.
Day 2, Saturday 13th July
Everyone woke up early in the morning and prepared for the morning exercise. A short while later everyone enjoyed a hearty breakfast before going to the school hall for the praise and worship session by the Girls’ Brigade. Fun followed as the station games were next. This was the most anticipated and entertaining part of the camp. All teams have to come up with their own war cry. It was definitely one of the most enjoyable sections of the camp.
Then, it was time to clean up and pack up our belongings and dorms. The anticipated prize giving ceremony was next as the top 5 teams with the most points throughout the camp receiving prizes. Before the closing parade at 4 p.m., some of the facilitators performed a brief fancy drill which they had practiced during breakfast earlier. It was really amazing to watch such outstanding and creative presentation. The vespers from both brigades were sound to mark the closing of this camp.
