On the 25th of May, a total of 49 participants gathered together at Vinayalaya, Andheri for the CFCI Youth intake camp. The theme of the camp, ‘Faded’, was decided by the 15 team members and formators.
The three-day event began by welcoming all the participants, followed by a small game and the first talk. The participants were very enthusiastic and participated in all the activities willingly. The day ended with a second talk and a night full of fun-filled games.
Day 2 was off to an amazing start with the ‘Faith Walk’ where the participants learned to trust each other and build new bonds. This was followed by the third talk which enlightened the minds of many followed by a time of inner healing. Here the participants were led through a reflection which enabled them to pinpoint areas of hurt and pain in their lives and then surrender them to God in order to experience the fullness of His love and mercy. The day went on with the fourth talk and ended with the ‘Pray-over Session.’ This session was truly an amazing experience for each and everyone participating as well as for those on the team.
Day 3 began with the fifth talk and a Letter writing session in which the participants wrote letters to their parents, not knowing that their parents also had written letters to them. All the participants enjoyed the next event, the Treasure Hunt and showed a lot of enthusiasm for the same.
The ‘Parent-Child Session’ was next, where the participants and their parents exchanged their letters with each other and had a moment of bonding and expressing their love. The day ended with the celebration of the Eucharist.
The camp was truly an enriching and amazing experience. It helped so many people with the many problems that they were facing. All in all, it was a truly memorable experience that everyone will cherish.
