Camarines Sur – WYA Asia Pacific Track A Summer Camp

It is with great delight that I invite you to join our annual World Youth Alliance Summer Camp –where young leaders, will learn about Human Dignity and be given the training and accreditation necessary to represent the World Youth Alliance locally and internationally.


The Summer Camp was first conceptualized last year (2007) and held at Puerto Galera, Mindoro Occidental. Its aim is to have WYAAP (World Youth Alliance Asia Pacific) members and young leaders train and finish the Certified Training Program (Track A) within a week of fun under the sun. This year it will be held at San Jose, Camarines Sur on May 12-18 and it would be our pleasure to have you there.


This summer camp aims to train young leaders from different fields of study/interest, from across Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao, to communicate articulately in the discourse of the dignity of the human person and develop a vocabulary with which to engage the international and local communities on issues that impact policy and culture. Through this lived experience of the dignity of the person, all of us will be able to affirm life at all levels of society. Through various camp activities, we look forward to creating a very dynamic and long-lasting bond and friendship among the participants.


Some activities lined up during the camp are:


    * Interaction with other participants and members of WYA
    * Discussions of various articles and books by the beach
    * Group Activities to enhance leadership skills
    * Day-trip to Atulayan island
    * Tour around the Partido Area – Cagaycay River, Mount Isarog, Consocep Falls
    * Friendly visit and build at a nearby Gawad Kalinga site
