Representatives of the SYM (Salesian Youth Movement) of St. Louis School Don-Bosco (SLS-DB) Dumaguete City were hand-picked to join the 3 days Kool Adventure Camp (KAC) in Balamban, Cebu.
What is SYM?
In every St. John Bosco school all over the world, the SYM is in charge in building clubs and groups to help the young in growing their Christianity and faith. Some examples of these clubs includes: Savio Friends Club, Friends of Laura Vicuña Club, Auxilium Club, Lilies of the Altar, Knights of the Altar, and Biblos Club.
Kool Adventure Camp
The Kool Adventure Camp (KAC) is a program wherein team-building and leadership training are being enhanced. For decades, The KAC has provided the perfect place to mold a servant-leader and a better individual. Strenuous activities such as wall climbing and rope courses are some of the activities taken by the campers in order to conquer the true meaning of team-work and unity.
The adventure of the campers
St. Louis School Don-Bosco had the privileged of joining this camping adventure. Three of the student representatives of SLS-DB and two animators of the SYM office were able to join this Kool Adventure Camp in Cebu.
The journey started late in the evening of February 1 as these representatives rode their boat going to Cebu. After arriving early morning of February 2 in Cebu, the DBTC (Don Bosco Technology Center) SYM administrator of Cebu picked the representatives from the sea port. An orientation was held at the Lourdes Parish-Don Bosco Youth Center around 2 pm along with other fellow “Bosconian” (called to a person part of the Bosco school/center) SYM members and leaders in order to follow the rules of KAC.
The first batch of SYM leaders to join the KAC were from Don Bosco Mambukal, Don Bosco Pasil, Don Bosco Dumaguete, Don Bosco Technology Center, and Don Bosco Victoria’s in Bacolod. These representatives of the Kool Adventure Camp summed up to 32 members.
After three days of adventure, reflection, and application, all the representatives went back to their centers and school in order to begin the new start of good leadership to their own SYM community.
