A chapter was closed on last Sunday, as Hangqi and Mabel pass the baton over to Kaiwen and Chenxin, to welcome the new Camp Master and Camp Mistress for Camp Ehi-Passiko 2009 in its 12th year. As we proceed on with the year, lets reminisce some good moments of the past camps within the last 11 years and all the laughters and tears we have had for this Camp and for this group. What is the reason for organising Camp Ehi-Passiko? Many of you will ask. But I believe that answer takes root differently within the hearts of everyone. Camp Ehi-Passiko is definitely a BUDDHIST CAMP, where we want to introduce basic Buddhism to young people messed up with the mass media and the rat race. We know that we do not go in depth into the Buddhist teaching, but then this camp is a youth camp and not a retreat. We hope we can plant a Dhamma seed in everyone of you and when the conditions are right, may it bloom and flower into an inspiration for your lives.
Of course, Camp Ehi-Passiko is also a celebration of friendship. The Buddha told Ananda that spiritual friendship is the whole of spirtuality and rightly so. Sometimes we may have petty quarrels with our friends, but it is only natural for we and our unenlightened minds are still learning to become perfect but are not perfect ourselves. Camp Ehi-Passiko thus gives us a reason to come together with ou dearest dhamma friends and to work for a camp that propagates the beauty of the Buddha-Dhamma. Together in spirit, we hope that we are able to create a positive energy within ourselves as we strive on with our lives as friends, brothers and sisters. So learn to be patient with one another, take a step back and accept each other for who they are. Ultimately, learn to guide each other on the right path, the Buddhist path.

Organisers behind the first Camp Ehi-Passiko back in 1997! It was also the camp where I got to know Zeming, Anglee, Kaiyi and co and of course, Camp Ehi-Passiko has lasted for 11 good years!
Friends, if you identify with a specific camp, especially your first, please let me know so I can update it here. Do also check thru' if there are any errors as there are so many camps and I reckon I could have probably made a mistake.
To many more good years of Camp Ehi-Passiko and building a vibrant, faithful and wise youth Buddhist community in Singapore!
