To God be the glory, the 7-day 2015 edition of Activate Youth Camp finally comes to an end. The journey through this period has been totally impactful, as young minds have been equipped, empowered and encouraged to get the best from life. This can be proven going by the testimony of the campers.
There was a photo session for virtually all campers, and mentors inclusive. The atmosphere during the photo shooting was so bright and colourful. Mentors used the opportunity to further interact and take photographs with the campers. It was really fun-filled.
However, Mrs. Kikelomo Omooba, Convener of AYC '15, took her time to admonish the campers to be good ambassadors by always thinking right, acting right, living right, and putting God first in their endeavours. Campers who proved to be outstanding in one area or the other during the camp experience were rewarded with gifts with a view to further encourage and challenge them and their peers.
Then came the torrents of emotions, as parents started trickling in for their children. Undoubtedly, these children have had one of the best times of their lives in the past 7 days of AYC '15. Many of them could not hold it together, as they busted into tears.
After the campers had departed, the convener had a brief meeting with the mentors to appraise and evaluate the success of AYC '15. The mentors and volunteers were commended for contributing their time, skills and expertise towards a better life for the coming generation and encouraged to be a part of AYC 2016.
More photographs were taken, and contact details were exchanged. Indeed, it's been a memorable experience for all.
