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. (FOR STUDENT CIP CLUBS ONLY: On behalf of NUS USP, we are writing to seek your assistance in publicising Ren Ci Hospital and NUS USP’s camp collaboration.) The theme this year is 暖 - a Chinese word that means Warmth, and is made of 爱 (love) and 日 (day). Essentially, our aim is to spread love in the day, in this case to bring warmth to our elderly and participants.

Aimed at youth participants between 16 and 19 years old, we 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, we 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.

For our first collaboration, we have received positive feedback from our participants. Many reflect-ed that they gained a better understanding of the needs and difficulties of the elderly, and were al-so able to communicate with the elderly more effectively.

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

Date                   : 28th to 31th Dec 2015

Time                   : 9 am to 6 pm from 28th- 30th Dec, 9 am to 2.30pm on 31st Dec
