BEaching with the BE
Rayong is a province in Thailand which has a lot of tourist attractions such as beautiful beaches and nature reserves. With those reasons, BE students decided to do the camp and volunteering activities in Rayong which occurred on 2-3 November 2019. We arrived at the first place mentioned on our itinerary: Rak Samae Bridge, Klaeng District. We walked across wooden bridges to do some sightseeing throughout the mangrove forest. In addition, BE students participated in returning caged Samae crabs back into the waters. In the afternoon, we had many activities along the beach which helped build good relationships between seniors and juniors. One of the activities students thought as being fun and useful, was brainstorming humanitarian projects. The last activity we did in the afternoon was a volunteering activity. We collected garbage around the beach.
After dinner time, the beach night party started. The venue for the night party was beautifully arranged by year 3 students. Aside from the fun games and other exciting activities, year 2 and 3 students shared helpful advice to us their juniors. At the end of the night party, the atmosphere was warm and fun – we grilled seafood by the beach and danced the night away.
Through the trip, BE students were able to acquire happy memories and build new friendships. They hope that STIC will always support them and all other students to conduct productive camps in order to gain new experiences, and opportunities.
