Back to coaching with AKLTG. Did two camps so far, St Patrick's School and Changkat Changi Secondary school.
Both camps are of a new theme, stadium, where the campers would have to walk like hell for the second day.
For my first camp, ST pat's. We set off on the second day at 5.30 am and started walking.
Walked from Campsite ( jalan Lekar ) to Bollywood vegies which was a good 12km away, walked for 2 and a half hours with hardly any break.
The Original route was
4.Kranji War Memorial
5.Ten Mile Junction
7.Bukit Timah Hill Carpark
9. Xiao Guilin
10. CCK Stadium
however, we werent able to make it in time as it was a good 70 km route. So we skiped xiao guilin, and reached campsite around 12am.
Next camp ChangKat Changi, i would say this is my smallest camp i've done so far. Only 6 participants per group, a stark contrast to the norm of 20 per group. Moreover, i had an A.coach attached to me ! Haha, feels like so long since i had an A.coach, but i realised that i had an A.coach for the last camp last season, the camp before st.pats
Yep, an a coach certainly lightens the load. Most importantly, there's someone to discuss with about the camper, and steps to take to help the camper stretch himself/herself, or the personality of campers and what style to take to handle them.
Am personally quite happy with the arrangement of having smaller group although i understand that this would put a strain on the company's budget. Having a smaller group allows us to understand each camper better, forge closer bonds and notice the small things that the silent worker does that would other passed unnoticed.
