Camp Rainbow (2012)

Camp Rainbow 2012 took place over 1 – 3 June 2012. The focus of this year’s
Camp was on the different aspects of nature – hence the theme INTO THE WILD! Together with their Befrienders, the campers embarked on a journey into the wilderness, meeting up close with animals and appreciating the beauty of mother nature. Through this year’s camp, we hoped to raise awareness about wildlife conservation, and at the same time, give the children an opportunity to go wild with our nature-themed games and activities.

To start off camp, we had the pleasure of inviting the Animal Concerns
Research and Education Society (ACRES) and the Singapore Zoological Gardens
to hold presentations and shows at our camp site. The shows include
presentations of live animals, and also allow the children interaction
opportunities with them. As opposed to previous years where it was a norm
to go to the cinema on the first night, we still caught a movie, but this
year we did it outdoors! In line with our theme, we took the movie
experience to the park near our camp site, while enjoying a picnic under
the stars.

The next day, we arranged for a tour to the Zoo, and were very privileged
to have the Zoological team arrange an enrichment program for our
beneficiaries, right at the Pavilion by the lake! Our campers also caught
the very entertaining ‘Splash Safari’ animal show where sea lions, dolphins
and seals put up enchanting performances. In the late afternoon, we
proceeded to the Singapore Flyer where we hopped onto DuckTours, viewing
the city by land and sea.

That night, there was the much awaited-for carnival to highlight the last
night of camp. This was a chance for our kids to go wild on the carnival
ground, dancing amidst the various game stalls, food stalls and
performances. This year, we arranged for a photobooth stand specially
sponsored by BaBooth to capture moments with each other. Props and costumes
were also provided for campers to put on for the pictures! Other sponsored
activities included a Sand-art stand, Storm Trooper mascots to entertain
the kids and many more. It was indeed a carnival-gone-wild!
