Youth camps help bring young people together and build their self esteem.

This was how two sisters, Lesieli Tuilauta and Halita Tuilauta from Tonga felt being part of the Pacific Youth Camp at the Davuilevu Theological College.

With the theme as ‘Our God is Powerful’, the camp has more than 1000 youths from around the Pacific.

They are part of a Youth Camp which is organised by the Fiji Young People’s Department of the Methodist Church in Fiji.

“This is our first time in Fiji and we love it. The people are very friendly and the environment is cheerful,” Lesieli Tuilauta said.

“The issues discussed here is very relevant to what we youths face and it has helped us to develop our knowledge in encountering it.”

Alivereti Koroisivoiduadua from Kadavu also felt the same way.

“We had to pay $170 but I think it was worth it because we have learned a lot of new things which we will take back with us,” Mr Koroisivoiduadua said.

Reverend Joeli Mawi said the camp included various speakers from different religions and different programmes set up for the week-long camp.

“The main purpose of this camp is to encourage youths that no matter what circumstance they go through, our God is still in control,” Rev Mawi said.

“We have different activities and programmes lined up which includes a Youth Expo on Saturday and a carol night with choirs from Tonga and Samoa.”
