Sojourn 2018: Genesis

Sojourn is our annual freshers orientation camp that is conducted in Singapore, before we head to London to start the academic year. This year, the theme of the camp is Genesis – which refers to the origin.

The camp was held from 17th to 19th August 2018, at various places such as Sentosa, Changi Beach and the Central Business District.

The freshers had a day in the sun on the first day. Beach day started off with stormy weathers but soon cleared up, and everyone had a great time playing in the sand.

This year, as per every year, there were 6 orientation groups, namely: Monsieur Flamingo, Colonel Mustard, Professor Bluestar, Nurse Black, Ms Scarlet and Reverend Green.These are the characters from the boardgame – Cluedo. Why these characters? This year, there has been an introduction of a storyline to the camp – a murder mystery.

Before the night games, suspects to the murder mystery were introduced and freshers had to complete intensely during the night games to earn the chance to have an advantage during the day 2 amazing race.

On day 2, the freshers embarked on the amazing race, which was conducted in the Central Business District. Freshers had to rush to various locations to obtain clues and evidence that will aid them in solving the murder mystery.

With the collected evidence, freshers had to create a skit to present their perspective of the order of events of the murder. The skit was presented during campfire night.

It was a chance for everyone to fight for their orientation group’s flags with the help of “infinity stones” that gave each group different advantages. The camp was concluded with the same weather it started with – gloomy and raining; but all the freshers left happy, contented and definitely tired.
