SPC Youth Camp 2015

19 December 2015

Last Advent, SPC Youth Camp was organized for the first time. There were about 20 young attendants turned upYouth Camp 2015 for 2 days 19-20/12/2015. It had created a great efford for the Sisters as well as the young people. With the help of two young leaders from Vietnamese Community, there was a big fun in activities for the young people to enjoy and make friend to each other. The spiritual and vocational sharing of Fathers and Sisters who had made a marvellous choice to step on the "narrow path" to follow Jesus enkindled in the young fellows the zeal and beauty of Consecrated life. 

This are words of Paul - one of the youth leaders from Vietnamese Community who had generously and zealously helped the Sisters in this event: "As I look back on my time at the camp I will definitely remember this camp to be one of my favourite. My personal experiences from the SPC youth group were quite positive. The Sister's put in a lot of effort to ensure the youth were able to have the opportunity to listen and experience Youth Camp 2015the calling of God through those currently living a religious or ordained life. The guest speakers were exactly the right kind of people that can influence and reach out to our youths. Other positives included giving the youths an opportunity to bring joy to the elderly residents, something I’m sure they will never forget!

Something I would of liked to have seen implemented into the camp was a night activity; such as a holy fire or a walk of faith in the darkness. This may give the youths an opportunity to connect with our Creator or reflect on what God has done for them in their lives.
Overall, the camp had many highlights, moments of silence and reflection, times of joy, happiness and laughter… memories that will always stay in my heart.
