It is quite a good opportunity for us to visit Denmark and participate in both FDF National Camp (Landslejr), held from 7th to 15th July and Wonderful Days Camp, held from 6th to 10th July. 13 participants from Myanmar were invited to participate in these programs. 5 of us went to Wonderful Days camp and the rest joined FDF National Camp (Landslejr). We would like to share some of our experiences from the National Camp.
National Camp took place in Sletten from 7th to 15th July, 2016. There were 12,000 participants including international participants at the camp which we had never imagined before. All the activities and games were fantastic and well organized. For example: the performances they presented at the big camp fire were linked to one another beautifully and attractively. Moreover, games were very adventurous and letting people engaged in team building.
There were about 12,000 colourful people participating in the camp. We eight people from Myanmar had to live together with Gl. Rye. They were all friendly, lovely and kind even kids. We were treated as the members of their family. When we got sick, the elders of Gl. Rye looked after us with love and patient. In addition, we could sleep soundly every single night because they built us a cozy tent and gave us warm sleeping bed.
As Asians, the foods are very different from us. In the beginning, it was very difficult for us to eat. But later, we got used to it and it has become delicious for us.
We all had a great experience at the camp together with Gl. Rye family. We played, ate, laughed, sang and shared what we have got together with them. Furthermore, we participated in Minglabar Myanmar activities enthusiastically. We played one of Myanmar traditional sports called Chinlone together with some participants at the camp.
Last but not the least, every moment we spent at the camp was amazing and we learned a lot of valuable things. Moreover, we got to see the impressive management and leadership which helped the whole event run successfully. We believe that we will be able to contribute what we learned from the camp in our country with our content.
