Kaoem Telapak organized Kemping Seru, after being delayed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Kemping Seru held for three days and two nights, Friday – Sunday, 9 – 11 September 2022.
Kemping Seru is a meeting between member of the Kaoem Telapak Association and the association’s administrators. For this year, members who live outside Bogor can take part online.
This year, the camp was located in Sagafarm, Ciampea, Bogor Regency. Sagafarm is an organic farm owned by Putro Santoso Kurniawan, who is also member of Kaoem Telapak. The participants who attended camping will take an hour and a half from Bogor City to get to Sagafarm via Aten Sandjaya Street. From the Aten Sandjaya main road, the road to the location will get narrower.
Sagafarm gardens are located in a valley. Cars that enter the road must be careful because of the narrow size of the road. The flag of Sagafarm is stuck in the hut near the basil garden, a sign that cars can be parked there. Next, the participants had to walk down the ground steps past the basil, kale, and cassava to get to the campsite.
The initial agenda was the presentation of Kaoem Telapak’s activities over the past year. The President of Kaoem Telapak, Mardi Minangsari, and Vice President of Kaoem Telapak, Wisnu Tirta delivered this presentation.
After the presentation, the free program began. Some played the guitar and sang, and some just chatted casually.
On Sunday, September 11, 2022, the members carried out Tabur Kaoem by planting lime seedlings in the Sagafarm garden. Tabur Kaoem is a program that instructs its members to plant trees.
Ten lime trees were planted in Sagafarm’s garden. After planting, the campers took a group photo, indicating the end of the event.
