Outreach programs in the Provincial Jail, Orphanage, Half-way Home, Community Integration areas, and Eco-farming were were part of the 3-day affair. The “Search for Mr. and Ms. BACS 2017” and the election of Youth Officers served as highlights for the event as well.
Dominic Abracosa, a participant, said, “It’s a great experience for [each] of us [to] be able to interact with other students and share our own stories with one another, while giving [importance] to our faith which bonds us together.”
The Catholic Educational Association of Virac will host the next Youth Camp in 2018.
