Forest Camp is a programme that must be carried out by all students in the School of International Tropical Forestry. This camp should be undertaken by students in year 2 (semester 2).

This camp is a part of the requirements for my graduation which is embodied in the Industrial Training modules. Industrial training is divided into two types, the forest camp itself and the other one; field-training in certain agencies, whether in government or non-governmental bodies. It will be taken by students in their final year (year 3) of the beginning of the end of the semester break. These assessments represent 70% and the other 30% is the assessment carried out during the Forest Camp.
This year, The 10th Forest Camp will be held officially for 14 days, starting from June 26 to July 10, 2010.

The location is at the camp-site of Kawang Forest Reserves, Papar. At the end of the camping, students are expected to gain experiences and knowledge as maximum as possible.During the program is running, students have been exposed to variety of useful knowledge and experience in forestry, such as Public Speaking, Survival, Forest Inventory, Dendrology, Evaluation of Recreation Potential, Community Forestry, Forest Resources and Non-Wood Forest Products (Tongkat Ali), Wildlife Census (Bird and river wildlife), Hydrology, Camp motivation lectured by our Dean himself... and Group Camping.

During this camp, participants stay on "ready-to-use" camp-sites and cook
according to our respective group on the kitchen ground-plot that being given. Each day, many activity will be carried out & on night, there will be an assessment by the lecturer that conduct each of modules. Striving to enhance soft-skills and characteristics of students to become a versatile forester, The Forest Camp Steering Committee has set the objective of the Forestry Camp on this Troop.

Cheer up a lil' bit....hehe...

Forest Camp Programme is intended to implement the spirit and characteristics of forester to students or prospective graduates of SITF.
There are five (5) of the specific objectives as follows:

1) Cultivating the wilderness instinct in the life of each student as a true forester.
2) To train students in terms of mental and physical endurance.
3) To expose students to the basic science and practice of the forestry sector in terms of theory and practical.
4) Fostering and strengthening of soft skills through science expedition and filling activity in the camp.
5) Strengthening the sense of caring and cooperation among the participants of the camp.

Indeed, The 10th Forest Camp for the 2009/2010 session has give me, myself & I; a variety of sweet and bitter experience especially to our group, 100 PLUS, over the past 2 weeks in the Kawang forest.
This is where the most beautiful memories rise among our group members, & even among groups within this 2nd Troop, foster fondness and cooperation as well as achieving the main objectives of the participants which is studying forestry in more depth knowledge.
Various activities are carried out with fatigue, regardless of the challenges that face forward, to complete the task, eating and drinking, complete the kitchens, tent, camp, bonfire, and so forth.
All the experiences and stories shared together by individuals through public speaking in front of all the friends and staff even lecturer who saw it. Yeahh, somehow it can explain how the nature of work in an organization can really achieve a goal.

The climax of the camp was on the 9th July which the title of "Rimbawan" & "Rimbawati" was given to the student with the most highly survival skill, endurance, spirit & highly motivated throughout the camp. They being chosen by The Forest Camp Steering Committee. The title goes to Davis (Rimbawan) & Sapphira (Rimbawati), my tent-mate, & my team-mate (at least i'm closed related to them...hahaha)...~~lol...
