SALT CAMP-Mindanao 2019

May 31 to June 2, 2019 saw another successful and fruitful SALT Camp in Mindanao at Don Bosco Training Center – Dahican, Mati City, Davao Oriental. 65 Salesian Youth Leaders participated in the camp. They are representatives from two Salesian settings: Don Bosco Training Center- Mati and Mary Help of Christians Parish – Don Bosco Dacudao. The Camp was facilitated by some of the SYM-FIS Core Group: Kuya Emman Barwado, Ate Jayriel Cui, Kuya Eduardo Empelis Jr. and Fr. Vince Michael Sabal, SDB.

The Youth Leaders listened and participated in the given inputs and also showcased their talents. Participants learned the dynamics of group life, planning and evaluation of activities, and animating youthful prayer experiences like the Taize, Eucharistic Adoration, and the Rosary. Some of the participants were given opportunities to share our experiences and reflections through the Good Day and Good Night Talks. This experience equips the participants with leadership skills in their service of fellow youth.
