Camp D4G (Destined for Greatness) “eXtraordinary”
Word of Life Camp (Calauan, Laguna)
November 25 – 27, 2015
The Annual Camp D4G (Destined for Greatness) for Grades 7 and 8 students was held last Nov. 25-27 with its theme “EXTRA ORDINARY”. The most awaited event of the students from Grades 7-8 was held at The Word of Life in Calauan, Laguna. There were about 5 buses that brought the 225 passengers (students, teachers and counsellors) to the said venue. The camp lasted for three days and two nights.
The students were grouped into 9 tribes. Each tribe was asked to assign a leader and an assistant leader. The tribes were called: Conquistadores, Sudlaach, Navigantes, Questors, Pirates, Explorers, Vikings, Abernethy, and Betelgeuse. There were variety of exciting activities held during the camp: designed a flag, created a yell and planned their strategies for the competition in the team building activities. Their eagerness to win and the spirit of sportsmanship were very evident in the manner they cheered and supported their tribe. Difficult tasks were accomplished through their tribe’s cooperation and support.
The three day and two night camp would not be complete without the designed activity in teaching the Word of God. Different biblical sessions were prepared for the students. The invited speakers: Mr. Matthews Jubilado (FCS Alumnus-Batch 2010) talked about Man as being God’s Masterpiece and Mr. Dean Pasaba (Campus Director of Every Nation Campus Metro East) ministered about Purpose and Relationship with God. After the last and third session, students and counselors were gathered for the Worship Night. Everyone was enlightened and empowered. This annual camp prepared for the students, was a great opportunity for them to become closer to God and create a family atmosphere among their schoolmates, it helped them to develop their leadership skills and learn the value of teamwork.
