Youths of Hope - Indeed!!
As a follow up to the last report, the time came for our 40 young leaders to put all their plans to work and to make the camps a memorable time for all.
The Theme of the Camps was "Youths of Hope", which were tailored so that campers would be encouraged and empowered to rise above difficult situations and be a beacon of light and hope to those around them, especially their peers.
There were altogether 2 camps running concurrently, one for the boys and another for the girls. Activities that had been planned for the 230 campers were wholistic in nature, which included station games for team building purposes, fun along the beaches, quizzes and life-skills like learning English the fun way through songs, first-aid skills, new skipping steps, etc..
Campers who came from different centres and provinces, got to "gel" with each other very quickly and effortlessly because the young leaders played their roles of facilitators well,and helped to make campers feel at home and belonged.
Nu, a camper said, "I really enjoyed this camp. At first I was rather apprehensive because I did not have many friends here, but now I have lots of new friends!"
Mink, a young leader reflected, "When I realised that there were so many campers that we leaders were in-charge of, I felt a little overwhelmed, but, then I learnt that if we delegate our duties well and are responsible in fulfilling them, we would accomplish much! Team work is so important"
Truly, the team of young people, together with the campers has proven that in Thailand, there are Youths of Hope - Indeed !
