Here are some of the comments from participants from last year.

My world has been broadened through my experiences on this camp. I no longer focus on what I have or what I have done. I now recognize how spoilt and weak I am. What a spoilt environment I live in. I have wasted my time although I have enough time to do many things .This camp has been an eye opener to me and has changed my attitude towards my entire life.

My experiences from this camp has made me more aware of what is going on this world.
