It was thrilling moments for the over 340 Pre-teens and teenagers, 80 counselors and officials who gathered at this year Youth Camp held at the serene Foursquare Camp, along the Lagos – Ibadan Highway, Ajebo Ogun State.
This year’s camp, which
was the Lagos 30th Anniversary edition, was spiced with the rich presence
of 7 campers from Liberia and 6 from Ghana.
There was a sad news of
kidnapping around the camp venue which almost threw us off balance, but against
all odds we took the step of FAITH and God took charge and everything went well.
The theme of this year’s
camp is “LIVE” (in Philippians 1:21, Paul declares that’’ for me to live is
Christ and to die is gain’’) in line with Lagos 30th Anniversary. In
a 7 days of exciting and adventurous experience our campers were taught from
the Bible to:
Live for Christ
Live for Excellence
Live in Obedience
Live in Purity
Live with Gratitude.
The campers played
different competitive games and winners emerged from the different categories, Challenging
games with interesting consequences for losers were player as well and they had
lots of fun.
Highlight was the ring of honor
where campers’ boys and girls separately appreciated each other for the impact
made within the short time in each other’s lives, and the grateful devotional
with tears in everyone’s eyes appreciating God for all He is doing in their daily
The campers also had
Ultimate search (searching for Thanos’ gauntlet) on Friday afternoon, another
challenging game and ended the day with a dinner tagged ‘’JEANKARA NIGHT’’ (A
dress of jeans and Ankara combination)
We thank God for his protections throughout our stay at
the camp and for the resounding success of the 2019 ICOCN Youth Camp and pray
it helps build the spiritual values and integrity of our children even as they
continue to LIVE FOR CHRIST!
We look forward to 2020
ICOC Nigeria Youth Camp with eye of hope and greater things that God will do.
To Him alone be all the Glory.
