There are about 40 participants joined this camp from different nationalities. This camp was held at Port Dickson, Negeri Sembilan.

The camp started with an ice-breaking. The participants were sit in a circle and they need to introduce themselves and tell a word according to the alphabet that our counselor give to them. The ice-breaking session was fun because some students that given the words FLAME and FIRE were getting splashed from other participants. Huhuhuhu!!!! After that, we are making our group flags and totally, they were all nice.

Later, at night, we went to RM2 shop to buy gifts for our new friends in this camp. Then, our counselor will give a list of participants room for them to give the gifts. It was fun since everyone got their own presents and we also can tighten our bond to each other.

For example, if your friends thinks that you are Bill Gates, so your friends may paste a piece of paper written Bill Gates, and you have to guess the person by asking questions. For example, what is the occupation of this person. The session finished with a fun respond from the participants.
