Girl Scout of Korea, 12th International Camp

The Girl Scouts of Korea (GSK) had successfully organized the 12th International Camp from 5 to 11 August 2009. The camp was held at Incheon Grand Park, Incheon, Korea. The Asia Pacific Region, WAGGGS is one of the sponsors of this camp. Participants from all around the world gathered for the magnificent activities, shared their thoughs and enjoyed their friendship together in a week and more.

I joined other students from Argentina, Indonesia, Afghanistan, Vietnam, China, Bangladesh, The Philippines, Germany, Mozambique and ect as the international volunteering staffs in the camp. We normally start to set up our countries' booth in the morning and waiting for the campers. What we do were to introduce our home country's culture, dance, games and any other traditional elements to the campers. The campers were from all over the world, of course with majority local Korean kids and children. The were so cute and we had a wonderful week together.

My booth consist of Malaysia, Kazakstan, Sri Lanka and Taiwan. I got to meet the friendly girl scoutss from Thailand, Myanmar, The Philippines, , Japan, Maldives, , Poland, Germany, Fiji, Taiwan and HongKong too. On the other hand, i was once ignored by those from USA, England and Australia. Perhaps they thought i was just an English learner who simply wanna practice my English with them. Or have they heard too much of the bad things about Malaysia? Very good, our racist government had not been doing any good. Some international pressure is needed.

Hey, what am i writing here? Scouting should be promoting friendship and peace, yet i'm criticising our friends here. Will try to look for the sincere and polite group of our friend to correct my pre-occuppied thought. All and all, i enjoyed the camp very much with the air-cond toilet, open-group-bathroom, delicious food and the soft sleeping bag. ^^
