Camp Simba is a 3-day-2-night camp for the children of cancer patients. Since it was conceived in 2009, this annual camp has been a huge success and is now an integral part of SingHealth and HCA Hospice Care’s annual programmes for their patients’ children. On top of that, three follow-up reunions are scheduled after the official camp, where Facilitators and children meet up once again for 1-day retreats, offering year-long support for the children.
For the 2nd year running, FOCUS Adventure is very proud to be given the opportunity to contribute, through the sponsorship of our site and facilities in Sentosa. On the 1st day of Camp Simba 2016, approximately 60 children and 40 student Facilitators gathered at our Learning Facility for a day of exciting activities. In the morning portion, the children went through a series of ice-breaking activities in the function rooms, and the atmosphere was lively and energetic. In the afternoon portion, the children were given a hands on experience on kayaking and rafting. Guided and led by their student Facilitators, the children worked as a TEAM to paddle their kayaks or rafts and move forward on the sea. It was definitely a good experience for many of them, on top of that a rare opportunity where they are able to experience such water sports.
