Youth Summer Peace Camp 2018

Roughly 80 young minds coming from the different partnered secondary schools of Peace Advocates Zamboanga (PAZ) underwent training on healing during the annual Youth Summer Peace Camp which runs from April 22-24 at Our Lady of the Pilar Retreat House and Lay Formation Center, at Mercedes, this city with the theme “Sustaining the Journey for Peace”.

“In our society now there are historical injustices and marginalized,” Fr. Angel C. Calvo, CMF, president of PAZ said to the young audience which ages ranging from 15 to 20 years old. The three day peace camp was jam-packed with in-door and out-doors activities which geared to widen and to enhance their perspective on peace and peacemaking, and most especially to learn healing.

“In our community there are many ethno-linguistic groups which sometime cause’s conflicts,” Fr. Calvo said. “Basically that is our concerns, the social cohesions,” he added. To further enhance the skills and talents of the participants, they were grouped in accordance to their interest such as the: Theater dance, music, visual arts, arts and crafts, and journalism. Each of the groups has facilitators who came from the Youth Solidarity for Peace (YSP), the youth arm group of PAZ.

Fr. Calvo emphasized to them that the solution to this communal problem is through having a respect with the others. “If we want to make a world of peace, we have to respect the different flowers, appreciate each other,” he said.

After the Youth Summer Peace Camp, another batch of campers is expected to undergo the same training but this time it will be for the children on May. (Albert F. Arcilla/ZABIDA)
