followed by Sufian, Farah, Eva, Adelia, Vivi, Azrol@Boy and Razali@Pau.
This Camp is also part of the Service test for the Rover Squires.
Nearly 100 partipants attended the Camp. The Crew's job was to set up all
the 40 Camps including the dining camp, organised the Camp fire night,
jungle trekking and cleaning up the camp site; and they really did a good
job! The camp also provide a unique experience for the Crew as the camp
site is at approximately 800 metres above sea level, thus adopting quite
a cool atmosphere.
