It is a three-day live-in camp usually conducted during thesummer or semester break to officially bring teenagers and/or young adults into YFC. To fully appreciate the value of the Youth Camp and to make the most out of it, it must beseen not just as a three-day experience where the teenagers can have fun, (although this is alsoimportant), but in the light of the overall objectives of the Youth Camp, so that the youth candevelop to be joyful, responsible and fruitful men and women of God. We should realize that thecamp is not an end in itself or an annual diversion for teenagers that will give them something to doduring the summer or semester break, but it is the beginning of what will, hopefully, be a lifetimecommitment to God.It is the place where they will hear the Word of God proclaimed by other young adults likethemselves in an environment of fun and excitement, where they do not experience any form of pressure from adults.It is the place where they can form friendships with one another through sports, games andas they share ideas and experiences, and entertain one another in a wholesome environmentwhere Christian values are talked about and are actively practiced.It is the place where they will be stimulated and encouraged to develop their gifts andpotentials for leadership as they are exposed to other young adults who are actively involved inserving them as speakers, facilitators, sports and games coordinators, and other services that areessential to the life of the Youth Camp. CHALLENGES For the Youth Camp to be successful, it is important for the team to be aware of thechallenges that they will face.1. Many teenagers will come to the camp due to parental pressure encouragement. Many willcome with the idea that the activity will be dull and boring, and that it will be a waste of time. This is reinforced when people refer to the Youth Camp as simply a Life in the Spirit Seminar or LSS which makes it sound too serious and unexciting to the ordinary, normalyoung adult or teenager. Besides, this is really a misnomer because the LSS is just one of the many key elements of the Youth Camp.2. The participants will be meeting a lot of people for the first time. Teenagers act normallyand openly in the company of friends but take a while to warm up to new faces. Having aService Team of friendly and warm young adults at the time when the participants startcoming in will help make them feel at ease and welcome.3. Some of the young adults will be difficult. Some of them may even have serious addictionsto drugs and alcohol. Others will come with a rebellious spirit, while others may beharboring serious resentments towards their parents and other people. For this reason, aresponsible Couple Coordinator need always be present during the Camp.4. Many teenagers will find difficulty in committing to the Lord, to YFC  , and to the whole newway of life that is being offered to them. There will be a real fear of giving up a lot of their attachments to their established set of friends and to the regular activities that theyare accustomed to. This poses a real challenge to the team in as much as making the Youth Camp fun and exciting, and to always manifest a joyful and friendly spirit. The team 4
