Camp REConnection 2015

Camp REConnection 2015

Camp REConnection is a project initiative started in 2014 by Ren Ci Hospital, targeted at pre-university students. NUS USP [National University of Singapore (University Scholars Programme)], in collaboration with Ren Ci Hospital will be organizing a 4-day camp with the objective of reconnecting the elderly and youths of today.

The theme this year is 暖 – a Chinese word that means Warmth, and is made of 爱 (love) and 日 (day). The aim is to spread love in the day, in this case to bring warmth to the elderly and participants.

Aimed at youth participants between 16 and 19 years old, the camp organisers hope to raise awareness of the problems that beleaguer the elderly sector in Singapore, particularly those who require long-term care. The 4-day camp shall comprise a combination of theoretical and practical activities, including experiential learning and role-playing!

Through exposing the youths to the difficulties faced by the elderly in their daily lives, the camp organisers hope to stimulate their thought and compassion, thereby 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, as well as interaction time with the elderly residents at Ren Ci Nursing Home.

CIP hours will also be awarded to participants in appreciation of their time spent interacting with the elderly residents.
