ST. JOSEPH RETREAT HOUSE, Dahican, City of Mati, Davao Oriental –27 animators and leaders from the Salesian Houses: Mary Help of Christians Parish – Dacudao, and Sacred Heart of Jesus Parish – Mati participated in the Salesian Leadership Training Camp (SALT Camp) last April 25-28, 2017.
The camp targeted the leaders that have already participated in the previous Camps or those that are candidates for Group/Sodality Animators. The participants were trained to use Don Bosco’s preventive system: Reason, Religion, and Loving Kindness in handling their groups. They were exposed to the different social issues that youth face today such as: poverty, education, dysfunctional families, prostitution, child abuse, and drug addiction, and how to properly address these different realities as Salesian youth leaders.
This year’s SALT Camp was the 3rd leadership camp that the Salesian Youth Movement – South Province organized in the Mindanao district. The four-day camp concluded with celebration as the youth leaders expressed their gratitude for the experience.
