2013 Investiture Camp

Pegasus Cub Scout had our very first camp before the March Holidays.

The camp started with doing some jobs for teachers within the school compound for the Job Week 2013.

The cub scouts then learnt some camping skills like setting up of the campfire and tents.

Sixers and Assistant Sixers lead their members to prepare an item for the campfire. The item can be either a song or a dance.

As part of the mentoring programme, the Senior Sixers were tasked to lead in the campfire and the investiture ceremony in the evening.

We were very honored to have our Principal, Mrs Lee Hui Feng, as our Guest of Honor for the campfire.

Parents of new cub scouts were also invited to put on the scarf for their child during the Investiture Ceremony.

On the second day of camp, the cubs were again led through an exciting activity - outdoor cooking.
For some of them, it is their very first time cooking their own food, washing their own utensils.

The camp ended with a debriefing session.

Till we meet again for the next camp, let us keep the BP spirit burning ....
