Volunteer for Camp Reconnection!

Camp Reconnection

Camp Reconnection is a project initiative by Ren Ci Hospital, targeted at pre-university students.  NUS USP [National University of Singapore (University Scholars Programme)] is enlisted by Ren Ci Hospital to organise a 4-day camp with the objective of reconnecting the elderly and youths of today.

Aimed at youth participants between 16 and 18 years old, they hope to raise awareness of the problems that beleaguer the elderly sector of Singapore, particularly on the elderly who require long-term care. The 4-day camp shall comprise a combination of theoretical and practical activities, culminating in an outdoor field activity with the elderly. Through exposing the youths to the difficulties faced by the elderly in their daily lives, they hope to stimulate their thought and compassion, helping them to better empathise with the older generation. Participants can look forward to an enriching line-up of programmes, including dialect lessons, sharing sessions, amazing race, obstacle courses as well as an attachment at Ren Ci Nursing Home for participants to have a first-hand experience in interacting with the elderly residents.
