“You can design and create, and build the most wonderful place in the world. But it takes people to make the dream a reality”. – Walt Disney.

Employee engagement is an important driver of organizational success. When employees are engaged with their work, they’re more fulfilled, more productive and more motivated to create satisfied and loyal customers.

Measuring employee engagement and executing engagement programs can appear to be a daunting process. FOCUS Adventure can assist in finding out the needs of the employees and crafting out a suitable engagement program to keep their motivation and drive high.

Using the G.E.M. model, we create a customized survey to Gather feedbacks and results on the type of engagement program that entices them. With the feedbacks and findings, we proceed to a facilitated session to Evaluate and narrow down the results to Mould the perfect engagement program for the employees.

Our engagement programs include but not limited to:

–      Recreational certification programs. (Sailing Competent Crew Course, PPCDL powerboat licence, kayaking certification course)

–      Dinner & Dance. (Venue, customised planning, emcee and overall execution)

–      Family Bonding Day. (Venue, planning, emcee and overall execution of a customised family bonding day)

–      Lunch time workouts. (Yoga, Zumba, Pound, etc.)

The Basic Officer Course (BOC) is a specially designed 5 day course which allows every participant to experience 5 days worth of a range of activities that FOCUS Adventure, CAMP CHALLENGE, OUTDOOR Adventures & SeaOPS (FACCOASO) provides. It is not only an initiation for anyone who would like to pursue a career with FOCUS Adventure; it also allows them the opportunity to realise if this job is the right fit for them. A major part of the course also allows the Lead FAcilitators to manage the course objectives, to observe the participants behaviours and identify those who demonstrate the greatest Leadership potential.


The BOC focuses on participants of all Officer levels; from Assistant Manager  to Director levels . Officers of the various units (Business Development, SeaOPS, CSR, Logistics, Safety, R&D etc.) hold leadership and management positions within the company. It is the start of the journey of a career that will take them to “places that they had never been before”; the beginning of an exciting and meaningful career that will Challenge and Stretch their own limits to a whole new level.

The BOC includes a session related to the vision, mission and all other methodology upon which FOCUS Adventure is based upon, plus a profiling session and The Leadership Challenge (TLC) session for participants to better understand themselves and their Leadership styles. It also gives participants an opportunity to learn and understand the debrief processes used in FOCUS Adventure, and a chance to experience the various activities, facilities and resources that FOCUS Adventure has, including our Sentosa, Sembawang and Raffles Marina sites using our own sailboats.

During the 5 days course, participants are constantly challenged at a mental, physical and emotional level. Participants must demonstrate Leadership, Teamwork and the ability to Adapt and Innovate and make sound decisions on the ground.

The BOC is a course that cannot be compared to anything else in the market and it definitely takes “Challenge” to a whole new level. The course is open to Corporates and Individuals  as well for a  fee and will certainly allow anyone who attends it, a glimpse into the exciting career of a FAcilitator or Project Manager at FOCUS Adventure!

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

Name: Cheryl

BOC 27 was an enriching experience. Throughout the 5D4N, we were challenged both physically and mentally. Going through this process with the team enabled me to not only get to know them better, but also how my working style affects them.

An activity that stood out to me was ‘End of Line’. It resonated with me as it provided me with a better understanding on how the different roles in an organisation influence the dynamics of the staff. Having the sense of sight and verbal communication taken away, I learnt the importance of trust; be it in the people or the system in order to keep the team going.

My key takeaways include collaboration, trust and taking risks. All of these culminated towards the end where all of us ascended the TEAM CHALLENGE HOURGLASS. There were many opportunities to rely on and provide support to our teammates. These enabled us to forge bonds that will last past our BOC experience and into the working environment. I am very thankful to the FAcilitators and participants who made BOC 27 a positive and memorable experience!

Name: Panir

BOC was an intriguing programme, planned for all new partners of FOCUS Adventure (FA), CAMP CHALLENGE (CC), Outdoor Adventures (OA) & SeaOPS (SO). Together we went through a series of activities to have an overview as an InstructorFAcilitator and Project Manager.

Some activities were challenging which allowed us to know our fellow partners more in depth. Along with physically demanding activities, these moments opened us up to be more compassionate among each other throughout the course.

BOC batch mate’s endurance was tested throughout the programme, and also made some of my course mates overcome their fear. As a result, this created positive communication among us and levelled up our confidence to achieve greater heights together as an organisation.

Coming in with the background as an Outdoor Educator, this BOC was more of managing my course mates’ expectations, emotions and encouraging them to come out of their comfort zone to achieve greater heights. Those 5 days gave me an insight of what my appointment entails, what is expected out of me moving forward in FOCUS Adventure and my purpose of me given this opportunity.

Name: Ali

BOC 27 has been quite a rollercoaster ride for me.

We had a clearer understanding on all the different abbreviations that matters in the organisation and also gain insights on the systems in the organisation.

We had many activities that made the course so fun such as the High Elements, Team Challenge Hourglass, Sailing, Low Elements and also Kayaking!

I also deeply appreciated the DISC PROFILING portion where I got to better understand myself and my working style, it opened up my blind spots as an individual too.

All in all I feel that it was a great course which helped individuals to push beyond their limits and understand themselves better.

I definitely did not regret attending and if were to be given a chance, I would want to be part of the organising team to push myself to the limit, to give the future batch of participants a good experience.

Name: Gavin

BOC was certainly a fulfilling experience for me and my fellow peers. With the various activities prepared for us, we were well equipped with the knowledge about the structure of FACCOASO, how it runs, the values and culture we have, knowledge about activities, and most importantly being pushed out of our comfort zone. The best opportunity that I really enjoyed was that all of us had the chance to conduct different energisers every day. Not only was our confidence boosted, it gave us a chance to try out something new amongst our circle.

There were moments in certain activities where our fears were revealed, and this led us to realise and understand more about each other. Speaking of understanding each other, the DISC portion was apt for us, as we got to understand how each others’ working style is. The fact that we will be working with one another closely was vital that we learnt how to work together effectively and efficiently.

As much as we have learnt through the activities, the one thing I really enjoyed was the simple things like morning exercises, pre-meal appreciation, meals together and even supper together. These simple things really showed our close-knitted relationship together out of work, and that simple things like these can bring out camaraderie as well. This was evident when we wanted to rope everyone to join, or we ourselves want to be part of this circle, due to the fear of missing out.

“A circle represents that there are no loose ends”. A circle can remain in its shape; a circle can grow and be even bigger. Ultimately, it takes everyone to maintain the circle, and to grow it as well.

In conclusion, my BOC experience together with my peers and the FAcilitators was enriching and heartfelt. I would like to thank everyone for this experience.

Name: Jasmin

Basic Officer Course 27 (BOC) was truly a fun and enriching experience for me. The programme was well planned and it broke me out of my comfort zone which proved to me that I am capable of achieving more than I thought was possible.

Team Challenge Hourglass was the activity that left the deepest impression on me. Standing at 24m tall, this majestic tower definitely brought out the best in every single individual in the team.

Moving forward, I have more confidence in stepping out of my comfort zone and proving to myself again and again of what I am really capable of. A big thank you once again to my amazing team members as well as all the FOCUS FAcilitators that was involved from the planning to execution of the programme.

Name: Amanda

BOC 27 was indeed an eye opening experience for me. Being able to experience the different activities allowed me to better understand the perspectives of our participants. These include safety, level of engagement etc.

The segment which was most meaningful to me was the Team Challenge Hourglass, where I was provided the opportunity to be at the front. Being in a team with members who were extremely afraid of heights, it allowed me to constantly check on their progress and safety. This is highly relatable to working in an organisation, where it is crucial for all to be well aligned with the goals of the company. It’s not about going fast alone, but going the mile together. The Pampers Pole had also left me a deep impression, whereby we were required to take a leap of faith, it left me with no regrets.

Lastly, the whole course would not have been enjoyable without a sporting team. The FAcilitators and participants actively contributed and engaged us throughout the 5D4N session. It has definitely left me with sweet and impactful memories, making it a remarkable milestone through my FOCUS Adventure journey.

Name: Christina

It has been an enriching experience attending BOC. It gave me an opportunity to experience the various activities that FOCUS Adventure provides. I also learnt and understood the rationale of each activity and how they relate to our daily life.

I’m glad that I get to know my fellow colleagues better and building strong bonds between each other.

I would like to express my heart-felt thanks to everyone who made this BOC 27 a memorable one!

Name: Joey

BOC 27 was indeed an unforgettable experience in my life. By going through all the activities including High Elements and Team Challenge Hourglass together as a team, I have realised that nothing is impossible and we should always push ourselves out of our comfort zone. I have learnt to accept differences from everyone and at the same time explore more about myself. I became stronger and better during the course. It was a memorable and the most fun course I’ve ever attended.

Thank you to the team on FAcilitating the entire course while ensuring everyone’s safety.

Name: Mark

I really enjoyed BOC 27 as I became more aware of myself and learnt to relate to my colleagues better in a circle of openness.

I realised how real my fear of heights was on the high elements as I needed more time to complete the activities like Balancing Beam and Pampers Pole.

My teammates were very patient with me and cheered me on even though it meant delaying their lunch time because I took almost triple the time to complete the activities above as compared to them.

But it didn’t occur to me how much I needed to rely on my team until I was on the TCH. I stopped a 1/4 short of completing the tower due to dehydration and exhaustion and that was then I understood the limits of my body. I know now that I have to train my body better. Due to my fear of heights, I was reluctant to perform the Flight Line as well.

Looking back, I would like to try the TCH again in future.

The lesson I learnt was that in a department, it’s not a competition, but a co-operative effort where I needed to rely on the strengths of others and also be sensitive to their weaknesses.

Heights may be a problem and a real thing to me but others around me may have different fears that are real to them that I need to be sensitive and be empathetic towards their fears too.

Name: Belle

Attending the BOC 27 was an unforgettable experience for me. It showed me how teamwork can boost my personal confidence which made me complete the entire programme; which I would have never thought I could. The TCH taught us to trust our team members when the challenges seemed tough. My teammates always kept a lookout for one another. We encouraged each other to push on to reach the final objective. I am proud to be part of the BOC 27 as I truly enjoyed the programme and learnt a lot from each and every one.

The sharing of personal experience during the night has also let us knit closer to each other as we understood what he/she had gone through earlier in their life. I also appreciated being able to share my experiences which helped me broke the barrier I had prior to the course with my colleagues.

Other than high elements, I really enjoyed the low element teamwork activities and especially loved the water-based activities like Kayaking and Sailing. I’m really keen on participating in SeaOPS activities in future.

Above all, the greatest highlight would be the little quality times I had with my teammates and going through activities where we got to know each other on a deeper level like in DISC profiling, Lego Serious Play and in sharing our Life Journeys.

Hearing about the life others and given the opportunity to share my own has forged within our circle a place of safety and love for each other that will uphold us through tough times as co-workers in our time in FOCUS Adventure.

My many thanks go to the FAcilitators who tirelessly braved through short nights by planning and providing for us through the 5D4N.

I look forward to going the distance in building the vision of FOCUS Adventures with my teammates after this BOC experience.

In short, I am extremely fortunate to be part of BOC 27 and am proud to say that I have completed the challenges posted to me. Last but not least, it’s great to be part of the FA family!

Selamat Hari Raya from the CSR team! Even though we are all unable to go out to meet our relatives and friends during this time, Hari Raya is still worth celebrating. It is not easy for the malaysians who are stuck in Singapore as most of them cannot afford to go back home due to the current situation that requires 14 days quanrantine in both Singapore and Malaysia. As such, they are unable to celebrate Hari Raya with their families. To lift their moods during this period, we have managed to raise over $900 to do something for them and food was prepared by Free food for all (FFFA).

The CSR team along with some amazing volunteers helped with this event. We started early to prepare and also ensured that social distancing markings were up. They were really happy and surprised by our lunch arrangement! Following that, we continued donating the food to low income families residing in rental flats. It was not easy for our volunteers but we really appreciate everybody who helped in making a difference to those who are less priviledged. The mission is never over and we will continue to fight on! We successfully delivered 350 packets of food to those who really need it by the end of the day. Thank you to everyone who made this possible!



Client’s day was a refreshing experience for both the clients and FOCUS Adventure! The event was organised in conjunction with the FOCUS Adventure’s partnership with Resorts World Sentosa.

The event introduced the clients on two of the newest activities, The Millionaire Challenge! and The SEA Aquarium Challenge! FOCUS Adventure will offer these activities in Resorts World Sentosa.

The two new introduced programmes saw a very favourable response from the audience. The event also sparked quite a number of curious questions about these and other programmes that were showcased. The event was concluded with a lucky draw, sending 5 lucky attendees home with attractive prizes. The half-day-long client’s day was a successful event for our clients, our partners from RWS as well as ourselves at FOCUS Adventure.

Our Clients Day 2019 was a HUGE success with about hundred of our clients turning up on the day to give us the support!

This year the Clients’ Day was at Dream Cruises and it was a great adventure onboard the beautiful Dream Cruises ship.

Participants started off with a welcome speech from Dream Cruises where new offerings were shared with attendees together with some really great promotions that could only be heard for those behind the closed doors!

Right after, the attendees started off their adventure by mixing into teams and meeting new people to go around the Dream Cruises ship to do the various activities. They did a rotation of The XR Challenge!, The Xcape Room!, The Mobile Adventure programme! And The Race Kart Challenge!

The attendees solved puzzles, wore the Oculus Go VR headset to diffuse a bomb and put random pipes together to form an almost legit F1 Car!
Just before the day ended they were brought into a beautiful top deck where they had almost 360 view and had great tea together with the opportunity to network with others. The day ended with lucky draw prizes both from Dream Cruises and FOCUS Adventure!

The participants left the ship with a heavy heart as it ended too soon, but a big smile!
We would like to thank all our clients who attended this Clients’ Day and making it a success! This day was for you and we look forward to having you with us for more exciting Clients’ Day!

Let us know what you would like us to do for our next Clients’ Day! Drop us a feedback at info@FOCUSAdventure.com!




It was an intensive and an enriching 3 Days and 2 Nights Sailing Expedition that the 37 participants from MOE Changi Coast Outdoor Adventure Learning Centre (OALC) took charge of from 14- 16 October 2019. Over the course of these 3 days, the OALC participants & the SeaOPS team completed a long and fruitful journey to four islands to learn about them, namely; Pulau Sudong, Pulau Pawai, Pulau Senang & Pulau Satumu.

For Day 1, the Sailing Expedition started off with the participants arriving at Raffles Marina (RM) to get ready and to board the boats. After a recap on the safety briefing, the sailing terminologies, wind direction, furling and unfurling of the sails and understanding of the boats from the four skippers, the team set sail with the four accompanying sailboats; P Power, Maybritt, Zig Zag Wanderer and Latitude. As the team came for a 3 day Competent Crew Course (CCC) from the previous week, their skills and knowledge were more polished and enhanced after the recap.

The team was all set to set sail for their expedition after this recap. Participants were assigned roles and responsibilities and took turns to helm the boat, bring out the different sails and to sail effectively and efficiently, considering the wind directions and current. Despite the strong wind conditions and current against the boats, participants safely and skilfully sailed towards and berthed at Pulau Hantu for an overnight stay using their tents for the full outdoor experience.

On Day 2, the sailboats set sail towards Raffles Lighthouse at Pulau Satumu, passing by Pulau Pawai, Pulau Senang and Pulau Sudong. Participants got to learn about the history and culture using the AR app and their phone without getting off the sailboat. At the same time while passing by these islands, participants managed to catch a glimpse of the reefs as the water was shallow that morning, some even managed to see a sea turtle surfacing.

Finally, they sailed towards and berthed at Lazarus Island in the afternoon. Thereafter, participants made their way by foot to Sister’s Island, just directly opposite Lazarus island. With the guidance of a marine biologist, they went to explore the marine conservation park, looking for interesting species to learn about. Once this was done, they stayed the night at Lazarus island.

On Day 3, participants sailed back to RM. Although some of them were feeling tired, the energy level was high and everyone helped and supported each other at every turn. No man or woman was left behind. Everyone made it back to RM safely in one piece, with a smile on their faces and their hearts filled with joy and contentment.

This was indeed an enriching and positive experience for all and the whole expedition ended with a certificate presentation. What an end to the 3 days and definitely a great sense of accomplishment for all in attendance.




The main concept in “The Pixel Challenge” is for teams to realize that an organization/company is not merely made up of a sum of all its parts, but as one unit, one team, in order to achieve success that exceeds expectations. A paradigm shift is necessary to pull individuals/groups away from the silo mentality or competitive mindset, and set their sights on the bigger picture and the common goal, “The Pixel Challenge” can provide the platform needed for this shift. Teams will be given a picture which they must replicate by painting it onto canvas sheets with materials that must be earned. The setting of the challenge will mirror that of the real working environment, where resources may seem to be scarce until teams decide to share these resources. In doing so, they will soon realize that the picture that they have been assigned to paint is merely part of a bigger picture that the entire team has been tasked to complete. Since only the primary colours are provided, teams will have to find a way to make sure the entire picture is painted with coherence to ensure a beautiful big picture is attained at the end.
