As 2019 launched Activate Youth Camp into its 7th year, the number resonates with us as the year of perfection and  the theme Convergence becomes perfect to bring it all together.Our third day started with our early morning drills after which campers headed out to breakfast.

The next on our agenda was flash light where we reflected on the lessons learned from the second day and how to be in a better shape for today.

Today’s adventure opened our eyes to understand it was in times past that curiosity killed cat. Now, curiosity with direction and focus saves the cat and makes the cat exceptional and we were challenged to always want to know more and be more than what we are now. We moved on from adventure to general training facilitated by Ruth Goma.

In the general training, Champ Ruth Goma guided us into reflecting on the themes of Activate Youth Camp from the first year from “I Have It In Me” to our theme for this year “Convergence”. In this process, we reflected on the impact of AYC on campers who had attended before and they shared their impact stories which led them to return to AYC and how they want to use this impact to change the lives of others. 

The outcome of our learning today was the development of creeds along the themes of AYC over the years and a formular for success which is listening + understanding ÷ hardwork = success.

The skills sessions are beginning to take shape as we began to see the first finished prototypes from all of our skills session today.

The spotlight of tonight was dance. 

With pumped up adrenalin and dancing shoes, our campers displayed creative moves and showed who the boss on the dance is before our celebrity guest; award winning dancer, choreographer and director Segun Lawal of the Spirit if David Dance Group.

Before leaving, Segun Lawal noted that “being at Activate Youth Camp, you have the opportunity to let your creativity change you and your environment for better” before reiterating his commitment to the vision of Activate Youth Camp over the past 7 years and the next 100 years.
