One Day to Go Before Leaving for Camp

After tonight, it’s one more day to go and I am off to Mt. Peniel Camp Site, Capas, Tarlac for the summer youth camp we organized. I must make sure that I pack my things before anything else, making sure that I bring everything I’ll need (toiletries, comfortable clothes and not breeches, my MSI EX400, Bible and some pocket money).

This is the eighth year I have been involved in organizing summer youth camps with participants of about 600-1,200 per week. Yes, there are summers when we hold 2-week camps (1 batch per week), but this year, we settled to just one week and set 800 as our goal. Right now, we have exceeded our goal and hope to just keep it at 900 participants.

Early Monday morning, I will be traveling with an advance team of 54 people composed of different committees that will make the necessary on-site preparations for the youth camp that is entitled “Call of Duty: World at War” (Ephesians 6:1-20) and will be held from April 21-24, 2009. This summer youth camp was organized by churches from different areas of Metro Manila and Rizal known as Camp Kabataan, in cooperation with Breaking Point Foundation Philippines.
