June Camp 2014
Hi everyone! Heralds’15 brings to you a fabulous blog post on June Camp 2014 :]
Held from 23-25 June 2014, the camp theme was “Strength, Courage, Faith”, the theme verse being 1 Corinthians 16:13 - “Be on your guard, stand firm in the faith, be courageous, be strong”. Though this was a training and discipline camp, we did forge closer bonds as a company through the 3 days :)
Day 1 (23 June, Monday)
At 7am, 45th reported at the school foyer for roll call, in our neat full uniforms and shiny bling-bling polished boots. After the Captain’s opening address, we had a time of extremely fun icebreakers, which involved us forming human chains!
And losers were ‘treated’ to the forfeit of “Monkey Gorilla Chimpanzeeee”.
The highlight of day 1 was the outdoor activity! Groups went around to different shopping centres in Orchard on a treasure hunt. At each station, after completing a small task, they would be given materials for them to build a house with. The groups would then compete to build the best house, able to withstand wind and rain.
But first… Let us take a SELFIE! Cygnus clearly enjoying themselves while building their house

Aquilla’s house complete with a garden!
Following outdoor activity was outdoor cooking. The groups had an enjoyable time using mess tins to cook their mouthwatering instant noodles with a wide variety of canned food. Of course not to forget the refreshing and juicy slices of watermelon, hand prepared by our fruit ninja: Mrs Lee— YUM!
As the sun set to make way for the moon and stars, groups were blindfolded and led round the school during Spiritual Activity to remind them to be brave. Then, groups had their legs tied together to remind us how we must always support one another during times of adversity because 45th is an ohana, ohana means family and family means no one gets left behind. <3

Day 2 (24 June, Tuesday)
Early in the morning, several early birds took the chance to get an extra nap before roll call and morning exercise. #kiasumuch
Zombies on the court? Nope, just exhausted GB sheepies
A FUN amazing race was then conducted in school, as groups raced around to the different stations to play games in hope of garnering points for their group and win fabulous attractive prizes that include chocolates and chips! (Side note: the failed attempts were indeed amusing for the station mistresses)
Groups have fun performing their cheers
In one of the stations, groups had to take a photo with a pigeon (spot the pigeon behind Columba)
Last but definitely not least was the much-anticipated Night Surprise, which was based on the theme of an opera. Groups travelled back in time as they went around to the different rooms to get clues to help them solve the mystery! It was definitely an exciting time for both the actresses and the detectives (:
Yellow Room so STEP <3
After: why is qtCheryl the only one smiling while everyone’s looking emo?
Day 3 (25 June, Wednesday)
On the last day of camp, we mainly did clean-ups to ensure that all the areas we used were sparkling clean *-* Afterwhich, it was the long-awaited dismissal!! After Vespers, 45th (with the exception of batch’15) headed home to get some well-deserved rest.

June camp was undoubtedly a memorable experience for all, as we learnt so much more about being on our guard, standing firm in the faith, being courageous and being strong! :)
