The B-P Scout Guild Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, organized a Boys camp at Ruby’s Jungle Retreat at Templers Park on 18 – 19 August 2018. Rubiah is the wife of one of our guild members and the Jungle Retreat is named after her. Ms Jasmine Cleetus, our committee member, who was the coordinator, invited 18 under privileged boys from her school for this wonderful experience. This gave them an opportunity to experience outdoor life and camping.
Contributions were received from guild members to meet the expenses. This was an experimental camp to encourage these kids to become scouts in the future besides character building. They were promised more programs if they showed improvement in their character. Overall the camp was well received by the boys who enjoyed fishing and the food provided by Puan Rubiah. They also parted with some scouting skills like knot tying, fire lighting, hiking, mapping and compass reading. In order to follow-up with these kids, a one-day outdoor hike will be arranged in the near future.
This is just like B-Ps’ idea of his first camp for boys at Brownsea Island
