The 2nd edition of the Martial House APEX Camp has come to an end! Through the 4-day camp, campers participated in a wide range of fun and interactive activities to acquire Wushu knowledge and to hone their leadership and communication skills. One of the highlights during the camp was the 7km trekking experience at the Central Catchment Nature Reserve (MacRitchie) – TreeTop Walk. It was definitely a challenging task for the young campers but they managed to persevere and motivate each other to complete the trail! Pek Yu Hao, the youngest camper recalled, “The walk was tiring but we completed (the trail) as a team! The view from bridge was so nice! We don’t get to see this everyday!” After last year’s APEX Camp, many students feedback and suggested to include a night walk activity for the next camp. Hence, during the planning of the camp, the organizing team took the suggestion into consideration and eventually, made Confidence Night Walk into a reality! Upon the completion of the night walk, camper Tristan Yeo said, “It was scary to walk in the dark especially when a frog suddenly jumped out in the forest! Thankfully, my buddy was there to accompany me. It was a fun experience though!” During the last night on 11 December 2015, parents were invited to attend the Finale Night. Certificates were presented to campers for their active participation throughout the camp. Three campers were also presented with special awards. They are: 1. Outstanding Buddy Award – Isaac Ang 2. Outstanding Leader Award – Tristan Yeo 3. Outstanding Camper Award – Brayden Lew Martial House would like to thank the campers for your active participation and to parents for entrusting your children to the Martial House team. Not forgetting the coaches and helpers, Martial House would like to thank you for your selfless efforts and utmost dedication to make APEX Camp 2015 a success.

From 16 to 19 December 2014, Martial House conducted its first ever APEX Camp! With the objective of inculcating independence, teamwork, social networking skills and moral values in students, the team of coaches from Martial House has planned a series of action-packed and fun-filled activities for the young student campers throughout the 4 days! Four outstanding Martial House students – Seow Wei Kai, Tan Kairui, Cheong Neville and Loh Yan Ping, were shortlisted to be student leaders for the camp. It was a test of their leadership and communication skills as the student leaders had to lead the young campers throughout the entire camp! It was definitely a challenging task for the leaders as most the campers were hyperactive and playful! Even though it was tough and tiring, the leaders felt that the camp experience was a fruitful and memorable one! On behalf of Martial House, I would like to thank the student leaders for all their hard work, commitment and dedication! One of the camp highlights was the rock climbing and high elements challenge, whereby the campers had to overcome their fear of heights while completing the various obstacles. It was heartwarming and encouraging to see fellow campers cheering each other on when the campers were attempting to overcome each obstacle. During the rock climbing challenge, Ryane Lim was the only one who managed to reach the top of the 25m sport climbing wall – the tallest free-standing wall in Southeast Asia! None of the other campers, student leaders, or even the coaches managed to complete the climb. What’s even more impressive is that Ryane successfully reached the top not only once, but twice! Besides the regular training and outdoor activities, theory lessons were conducted for campers to better understand and appreciate the cultural values of the traditional Chinese martial art. On 19 December 2014, during the last night of the camp, family and friends were invited to watch a series of performances, specially prepared by the campers. The performances were filled with so much creativity and humour that the audiences kept laughing and smiling throughout the night! Each camper was presented with a Certificate of Completion for successfully completing the 4-day APEX Camp. Outstanding campers were also awarded with Certificates of Excellence. In no particular order of merit, the awardees for the Certificate of Excellence – Outstanding Camper Award are: 1. Wong Yin Hoi Zachary 2. Ryane Lim Yi Ren 3. Lee Fong Khin Jonas 4. Chia Kai Ming Team Dynamite was also awarded the Certificate of Excellence – Outstanding Team Award. The members include: a. Seow Wei Kai b. Shaun Teo c. Lam Jun Long Javis d. Lam Zhi Yu Mavise e. Lee Fong Khin Jonas Congratulations to all award winners! With this, Martial House APEX Camp 2014 has officially came to an end. On behalf of Martial House, I would like to thank the campers and parents for attending the camp and for giving their never-ending support. To the coaches, student leaders and helpers, Martial House Apex Camp 2014 would not have happen without you. Thank you. Below is a video montage of the camp.
