January 2016 Key Events

Camp Boomerang 2016

Camp Boomerang 2016

The UNSW Singapore Students’ Association (SSA) mission is to provide a wholesome and holistic experience for our members away from home with the aim of fostering strong ties and community among the Singaporean student community in the university. Based on positive feedback from camp participants last year, we decided to bring the Camp Boomerang back this year in 2016. The 2D1N camp will be held in Singapore to allow our freshmen of 2016 to build friendships among themselves and with the seniors and committee before embarking on their journey in Australia. This description outlines the objectives and aims, in line with OSU’s stated objectives for a funding application. The camp shall be a 2 day 1 night event, held at Girls’ Brigade Camp in Singapore on the 30 – 31 Jan 2016. With a myriad of activities aimed at building bonds within participants amongst other objectives, it would be a fun filled couple of days. Participants are grouped up and will compete against each other over 2 days through various scored activities. A rough outline of the first day of the camp is as follows: 9AM – Report on first day. 10AM – Orientation Games. 11AM – Amazing Race in central area. 7PM – Dinner. 9pm – Night Games. 11PM – Supper then rest Celebrate Singapore’s Culture and Heritage. Camps are customary events that many students in Singapore universities experience. We would like to bring this experience to the Singapore community in Sydney in the form of Camp Boomerang. Participants will get together in a fun-filled 2D1N camp which would be an enriching experience in their university life which is uniquely Singaporean. Participants of the Amazing Race would also be brought to iconic around the central area of Singapore and are encouraged to take pictures and selfies that they can remember the place by. This amazing race will be a uniquely Singaporean experience as it will incorporate a food segment which will feature Singaporean favourite foods. Along with this, participants would be briefed on the food stalls laden in the neighbouring suburb to UNSW – on where they can find Singaporean food if they so crave it while in Sydney. During the camp itself, students would be informed about agencies that link them back home such as OSU and Contact Singapore. They would be informed about events such as Singapore Day which celebrates Singapore overseas. Participants would also participate in a banner design exercise if supplied by OSU. Keep Singaporeans Abroad abreast with developments in Singapore. The camp will be a platform for the camp participants to keep themselves informed of the various avenues that are available to them to keep up with developments in Singapore. Besides from informing camp participants of the activities by OSU and CS, we will inform them regarding the various web portals, which they can use to keep in touch with Singapore. The OSU Newsletter and the SSA websites are examples to be pushed out to camp participants. OSU and CS are also invited to be present during the camp or disseminate their information. Participants would also be informed of media outlets to keep in touch back home – for example about how ChannelNewsAsia’s broadcast is available for streaming alongside Toggle streaming for keeping in touch with TV shows back home. Strengthen a sense of community amongst the Singaporeans abroad. The camp itself is an avenue for participants to cultivate friendships among fellow Singaporeans who are going over to Sydney to study. This is the only event that they will have the chance to meet everyone and participate in activities and have fun together. The camp will quickly introduce the freshmen to the Singapore society in Sydney. This will allow them to find a place in our community. Alongside these event, there will also be the yearly Inter-Varsity Games where Singaporeans from the various universities in NSW will come together to compete in different team sports. As such, this year, we welcome all Singaporean students from other universities in NSW to participate in the camp. This camp will kick off the calendar of events lined up for the Singapore Students in NSW and they can look forward to meeting the friends they have made through all these events. This camp will provide them opportunity to meet and develop friendships with students from other universities. Hopefully, this camp will eventually be an annual event for Singapore students studying in Australia. This camp will provide enough time for participants to develop relationships which will go a long way in helping the freshmen establish themselves in Sydney. They will explore Sydney and go for outings together. This camp will also quickly introduce them to the UNSW SSA and OSU which makes it easier for the participants to stay connected with the Singapore Society in Sydney. Through this camp, they are able to sign up as a member of the UNSW SSA. OSU passion card will also be introduced to them which will be useful to them in Sydney.
