DBYC-Lawaan: Camp Agape
by: Louella Pacada
After two years of conducting activities that does not need much face to face interaction, the Don Bosco Youth Center- Lawaan, has organized the member’s camp last July 15-17, 2022 – Camp Agape. It was held in the grounds of Don Bosco Formation Center-Lawaan. The camp was themed “Love each other, as I have loved you” (John 15:12) and was facilitated by the DBYC-Lawaan Core Group.
There were more than 60 participants ranging from 10-20 years old. They were divided into 10 groups with youth leaders guiding each team. The camp aimed to foster personal growth and development of the participants. Creative and fun-filled games, and team building activities were also given to foster a sense of belongingness for each member. In addition to the games, there were also inputs and talks about the Salesian Youth Spirituality that were given by the facilitators.
The general feel of the camp was one of joy, excitement, and a renewed sense of commitment to their DBYC groups.
