This camp was organised by Area 4 Instructors and was aimed at sharpening the survival and leadership skills of our cadets. Additionally, it allowed cadets to take initiative and bond with cadets from other schools as well. This year, the theme of the camp was occupations. There were a together of 6 groups, Cleaners, Engineers, Lawyers, Doctors, Teachers and Wrestlers. Each group consists of cadets from different schools that were carefully distributed to increase the probability of the cadets seeing new faces.
During the camps, the area’s Secondary 2 cadets had the opportunity to kayak, which was one of the key highlights of ATC. On the other side of Camp Resilience however, the area’s Secondary 3 cadets were tasked to participate in the High Elements Course, which was set up to allow cadets to overcome their fear of heights and to challenge the cadets’ mental and physical capacity.
The campfire was held on the last night to signify the end of the camp. Cadets sang campfire songs and the 6 groups performed in front of the camp. It was an awe-inspiring experience for everyone on the campfire pit as both cadets and instructors sang their hearts out to mark the soon-to-end camp.
