On the 30th of January, a group of 16 individuals started their Basic Facilitator Course (BFC) 21 journey, all the way till the 3rd of February. For 5 days, this group of strangers bonded over the challenges they faced and made their way through self discovery, laughter, overcoming various obstacles in the spirit of team work.

BFC is scheduled to fit in as many FOCUS Adventure activities as possible for the participants to go through and understand FOCUS’s methodology on experiential learning. The course is an assessment to identify suitable individuals who aspired to be a FOCUS Facilitator and is also opened to any Company’s personnel such as Human Resource Managers, Trainers who want to benefit and learn relevant facilitation skills.

As each of the activities is customized to emphasize the various elements of teambuilding, the experiences ranged from encouraging and supporting each other through physical and mental activities to understanding each other better by using profiling tools as a foundation; resulting in higher tolerance and respect.

Another objective, unique for BFC participants was the preparation and facilitation of activities which was showcased on the last day of the course. As most of the participants were new to FOCUS Adventure, the feelings were mixed with anticipation, excitement as well as not knowing what to expect, but they all went in with a good attitude and ready to step out of their comfort zone. The high number of activities being carried through 5 consecutive days, tied the diverse group together as if they had known each other for a much longer time.

Throughout the course, each participant had his/her personal learning points and achievements. BFC is a course which can unleash great potential, it’s up to each participant how much take away they will gain at the end of the course.

That’s how amazing going through “Where every moment is a challenge” with an open mind is and readiness to encourage and support your team mates can do. Especially in an environment where experienced facilitators can guide you to extract how you can best contribute and incorporate the take away into your daily lif

Round Singapore Paddle 27 30 August 2021




Early in the morning it is 0730hrs, launching off from Pasir Ris Park. The SeaOPS one star SUPers venture towards Pulau Ubin! We were rewarded with a vast length of greenery as it was low tide and the beach was filled with fresh seaweed swept onto shore.

At 0830hrs, we were off! First check point was towards Sungei Jelutong. Everything was great, cloudy weather, nice slow southwestern winds, and the seas were nice and calm. As we crossed the channel, we were met with some rain and dark clouds but that was not enough to darken our mood!

We paddled deeper into the rich mangrove swamp. We were greeted with the beautiful chirping of the blue jacket kingfisher and the environment was so nice and serene. It was low tide hence we were grounded due to not enough area to paddled, but we turned it into a good opportunity to have some light snacks before continuing on to Sungei Besar. The current was against us but fret not for we managed to pull through navigating our way in the best way possible. We enjoyed ourselves and we were glad everyone was safe and sound, that includes following strict SMM measures!

We have completed a total of 16km journey and we are thankful for all who had the opportunity to join us in joy and laughter while enjoying what the environment has to offer! On behalf of SeaOPS, FOCUS Adventure, we definitely look forward to the next expedition and we look forward to having you join us as well! Wait no longer, click on the link to join us for our next trip or look us up on Outdoor Adventures on Klook and Meetup for our other awesome adventures!

FOCUS Adventure celebrates Children’s Day with MINDS students at Universal Studio Singapore

As part of its corporate social responsibility efforts to support children and youths with special needs, FOCUS Adventure hopes to be a catalyst for growth, development and change for the students.

In collaboration with Towner Gardens School, one of the four special education schools run by the Movement for the Intellectually Disabled of Singapore (MINDS), FOCUS Adventure brought 20 students to Universal Studios Singapore (USS) on 1st October 2014.

Unlike conventional excursions where companies solely bring the children on tours to various Singapore’s attractions, FOCUS Adventure taps on its expertise in experiential learning to unleash the students’ potential through team challenges (attempting the rides as a group) and photo quizzes, leading to greater self-awareness and self-confidence.

With this project, FOCUS Adventure hopes that it can play a small but significant part to create awareness about Persons With Disability (PWDs); thereby ensuring a greater chance for the students to maximise their potential and become independent individuals who can integrate into the society successfully.

Testimonials from Towner Garden School

Thank you very much for the kind sponsorship.  Our students have a terrific time.  It has been a hot day and it was really hard on you all to see to their needs.  Really appreciate all the lovely goodies bestowed on them.

Our heartfelt thanks to all of u out there!
– Ms Loke, Principal

Our hearfelt thanks for a wondeful day out yesterday. The kids truly enjoyed themselves and also benefitted from learning about teamwork, responsibility as well as navigation. For some of them who have not yet gone to a theme park, just going on the rides was a fun learning experience for them. Thank you so much for giving them this unforgettable opportunity.

Your attention to our safety as well the comfort of the students did not go unoticed by our teachers. In addition you still showered them with gifts (caps, lunch, goodie bags) from your own pockets.

Thanks for making a difference in their lives. Hope you all had as much fun as the students and teachers did yesterday.

On behalf of Michelle and Learning Journey Committee, thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
– Lisa, Teacher

Officers of the various units (Logistics, Safety, R&D, Business Development, SeaOPS etc.) hold leadership and management positions with the company. It is the start of the journey of a career that will take you to “places you have never been before”; the beginning of an exciting and meaningful career that will Challenge and Stretch your own limits to a whole new level.

However, passing the BOC is mandatory as the Associate Officers will carry the same leadership and responsibilities based on rank as the full time counterpart.

Here’s what our BOC graduates have to say about their experience:

Name: Gladys TAN

BOC 23 was indeed an experience for me. I was never afraid of heights however when I was attempting the High Elements as well as the Team Challenge Pyramid I realized the feeling was totally different. The element of fear was present because there was no support given, the only two support I relied on was my team members who were there to ensure my safety as well as the safety gears provided. I’ve learnt to trust my team members more and also the safety equipment provided. It was through constant encouragement and support from them which allowed me to push myself to complete the obstacles. Through this course, I am able to experience and understand what participants are going through when they attempt to complete the challenges. It was really sweet to see how everyone was kind to one another and how some of us have bonded really well after this course.

I definitely do not regret attending this course in fact I really appreciate how this course has allowed me to better understand my strengths and weaknesses. BOC 23 has given another perspective to FOCUS Programmes; it is impactful and meaningful. Lastly, I am thankful for having great team members as well as a great facilitator conducting the entire course, it is truly a wonderful experience!

Name: Jeff TAN

It is definitely interesting and at the same time fulfilling experience for me as I have been looking forward to attending this program. Going through the different activities ranging from the energizers, mobile adventure programs and low elements not only allow me to learn the important points of conducting and debriefing the activities, it also provided me the opportunity to feel how the clients feels. This allows me to better pace the experience of the clients during the facilitation. As it does to the client’s company, it too built the relationship between me and my fellow colleagues.

The high elements pushed me to challenge myself while the 25 metres Team Challenge Pyramid got me to understand more about my-self being a leader. The self-discovery of how encouraging I am towards my team mates, how determine I am to challenge my-self and how much patience I have while leading got me to reflect on areas of improvements for my-self. There’s a saying, how you play your game is a reflection of life. In a team, it’s never about one person and an individual can never be a leader when there is no one to lead.
In overall, I enjoyed the self-discovery and the moments where all of us got to seat down, chat and laugh about the common moments over a meal.

Name: Liping NAH

It’s truly an unforgettable lifetime experience that I have gained from BOC 23!  By going through the High Element and Team Challenge Pyramid (TCP), I have taken a step further to understand the importance of TEAMWORK.

The Pamper’s Pole left me with the deepest impression throughout the 2 days course! I can only hear endless words of encouragement from all my fellow colleagues when I’m up on the Pamper’s Pole.

Personally, I felt that BOC has given us opportunity to indentify our individual strength and weakness which we simply ignore on our daily life.

Overall experience in two words “Epically Awesome”

Name: Dianne TAN

BOC 23 was truly an experience! I had previous experience doing High Elements, (although it was years ago) but I thought that would be a walk in the park for me. However, the moment I stood on the ‘Balancing Beam’ and looked down to my team mates, I felt the real terror of the High Elements – 15m in height! And I am glad I made it through.

Team Challenge Pyramid was something I always looked forward to complete and I was given the chance to do so in BOC 23. Although we took a slightly longer time to complete as compared to the other time, I was glad that my team made it through together and none of us gave up no matter how much tears was shed!

BOC 23 was certainly memorable and I appreciate that the course had all of us bonded. The course also made me realised my strengths and how perceived fears will always be there, but if we take that one step, to inch forward, we will definitely overcome and achieve the ultimate goal!

“The True Test Of A Champion Is Not Whether He Can Triumph, But Whether He Can Overcome Obstacles!”

Name: Yongjun FOO

The Basic Officer Course (BOC) was definitely a great experience for me, being given the chance to stand in a participant’s perspective and actively participate in the wide variety of programs and activities conducted for us.

The most memorable activity for me has to be the Team Challenge Pyramid (TCP) located in Bintan, where it pushed my limits as well as put the team’s camaraderie to test. Standing 25m above the ground, the first thing I had to do was to control my own fear and brush away all the worried looks on my face, so that it can be a form of confidence booster and assurance for the rest of my team. Saying that, it was not an easy feat for me either, even though I love rock climbing and did bungee jumping before, my legs were trembling a little while going through certain parts of the course!

The skies were turning dark and I think the fact that the whole team is dependent on an individual’s performance helped to push us on. At the end of it, I am very heartened that the whole team managed to complete it together.

In overall, the whole course was truly enjoyable and fruitful for everyone.



On 31 July, participants from Singapore Institute of Management (SIM) Global Education came together for a meaningful afternoon of teambuilding activities with a special element of community service in it.

The programme was done in collaboration between SIM and the chosen beneficiaries – Viriya Family Service Center and Whispering Hearts Family Service Center; both charitable organizations which provide community and social services to low-income families in Singapore. There were a total of 65 children and youths of different ages, races and gender who turned up at the programme.

Prior to the arrival of the children and youths, the participants from SIM were split into teams and tasked to design and create welcome gifts for the children. The teams showcased their creativity and craftsmanship by making DIY stationary cases as well as building nanoblock figurines, which were presented to the children and youths upon their arrival, instantly brightening their faces.

The participants then accompanied the children through The S.E.A Aquarium Challenge! where they were given a colourful race booklet,  and tasked to search for the answers within the Aquarium. During the race, the participants were able to interact closely with the children, and at the same time, the children were able to enjoy the interaction with the marine animals in the Aquarium, an experience that may not come by easily.

At the end of the programme, the efforts and hard work were all worth it with the sight of the wide smiles on the children’s faces and the knowledge that they have truly enjoyed the whole session.


Everything was done so well that I’m sure we will engage FOCUS again in the future
– Tiurma

Thank you for supporting us and making the programme a memorable experience for our colleagues and the children. Our colleagues shared that the programme was very meaningful and they really enjoyed it.

Like what I have told you, our team is very impressed with your Facilitators and they have done a great job in keeping our staff engaged! Do pass our compliments to them. Last but not least, thank you for being so prompt and responsive to our requests. Really a joy to work with you
