The aim of the camp is to unite YCS members in the bond of friendship and to spread awareness on the the issue face by teens in line with the theme of the camp which is “Mass Media and Youths”.

The first day of camp started off with a morning prayer followed by breakfast. Miss Lucy Gumek conducted an expectation and contribution check to help the participants to set goals to achieve during camp. A session on the first part of the YCS methodology, SEE, with the theme was then conducted by Cikgu Jenifer. The participants got to see how the media is used to influence us and to spread information regardless of its accuracy.  The day ended with Taize prayer. Through Taize prayer, the participants were provided with a peaceful environment to reflect on the day’s session.

An outdoor morning prayer started off the second day of camp. After breakfast and animation, guess speaker, Mr. Mervyn Lee, conducted a session on JUDGE. The participants were exposed to the roles of media in the Christian setting. Mass was then preside by Fr. Felix Au. After mass, lunch was consumed and a short animation session was held before Mr. Mervyn continued with the second part of his session where the participants were brought to reflect on their personal use of media. Then, a short praise and worship session was held before the participants were given time to prepare for Solidarity Night. Solidarity Night served as an outlet for the participants to perform and showcase what they have learned from camp. Every group was given the opportunity to perform.

The last segment of the YCS methodology, ACT, was introduced to the participants. The participants were given the opportunity to construct their own action plan to fight media abuse before getting into groups with their schoolmates to construct an action plan to spread media awareness in their own school. A concluding mass was then celebrated by Friar William Lee before lunch. After lunch, a general clean up was held to clean St. Lukas Catholic Center before returning home.

In general, the camp was a great success. The participants got to learn more about the media which surrounds us and to create stronger friendship ties with YCS members of other schools.
