Camp Day One

The Set Stage


As campers arrive, we are good to go. We think right, talk right, and walk right. We have it in us. 
Being Ingenious...
Ingenuity is the ability to solve difficult problems while being ingenious is displaying genius or brilliance. You'll agree with me that our country, Nigeria needs a feel of brilliance in all aspect for growth. Nigeria and the world at large need geniuses to make life better.
We are really excited about this gathering of over 200 teenagers that are on their path to making a huge difference in their homes, communities, schools, states, country and the world at large. It's going to be an awesome 7 days.
Lots of excitement, eagerness and passion was seen in the eyes of the teenagers as well as their parents as they trooped in for this year's Activate Youth Camp and because we are encouraged to improve every passing year with the high rising parents’ and participants’ success stories from the previous camps, no doubt AYC 2018 is going to blow our minds.
The campground was already filled with parents and teenagers at about 2pm with all sorts of beautiful moments to behold.
It was so good to see old participants reunite and new attendees make new friends as well as feeling comfortable with the atmosphere today. And this year, we have the highest number of new attendees yet who are looking forward to having the best week of their lives.

The First Lady of Lagos State, Mrs. Bolanle Ambode was represented by the Chairperson of Yaba LCDA, Mrs. Omiyale who charged the participants to pay attention to all they will be taught during the camp meeting so they can leave better than they came and make an impact in their society.

Following that, we had our first Journey of Guided Learning where the boys and girls where separated
At the female session, the guest speaker, Mrs. Kemi Sowemimo enlightened the girls on ETIQUETTE. She told the girls to always GREET everybody they cross paths with, especially the elders. She mentioned saying PLEASE andTHANK YOU as part of practicing etiquette. 

She talked about giving up seats for adults which aroused different opinions from the girls on whether it is necessary or not but they concluded that GIVING UP SEATS for Elders is just the right thing to do.

The boys were not left out as Barr. Taiwo Akinlami spoke to them on SUNDRY MATTERS, making them realize that people see you before they hear you. He also admonished them to take their body health
seriously and be clean.
There will be lots of morning drills, skills acquisition, games and sports during the course of the week.
We are looking forward to all the great sessions that have been carefully planned to engage and impact the campers making them realize that they are all INGENIOUS and can make a difference.
This year, we are intentional about impacting our champions who we know will make a huge positive difference in Nigeria and in the world!
Welcome to AYC 2018... I AM INGENIOUS; I can make a difference.
