Petaling Chapter Youth Leaders' Camp 2012

          The Youth Leaders' Camp was successfully held at Komplex Uniti, Port Dickson on 28th-30th of September. A total of 44 people consisting of 8 organising committee members, 3 helpers, 3 Territorial Army members and 30 participants were able to be part of the first of many other camps that are and will be designed specially for youths leaders.

          The purpose of this camp is to expose the youth leaders to authentic camp experiences as well as to drill them in different aspects so that they can be good leaders in the future. Besides that, the Territorial Army members served as Drill Instructors to prepare the participants for their marching exam which if passed, will earn the participants their Marching Proficiency Badge. This camp also provided the participants basic camping craft skills which will allow them to earn the Camp Craft Proficiency Badge.

          Last of all, a a big THANK YOU to the organising committee and the helpers who worked so hard to make the camp possible, the participants for being cooperative and fully participating in the activities, the Army members for their willingness to share their knowledge and serve as night sentries and to our OC Training, Pn Suzana for being the examiner for the marching exam.
