BIBD kicked of its “Camp Generation Y” yesterday afternoon at Taman Rekreasi Kg Parit and judging from the pics, the response has been AWESOME! The youth camp targeted at teenagers between the ages of 12 to 16 years is the first of its kind in Brunei where camp participants will build strong teamwork, develop leadership traits. The camp, which will be held until Sunday, is part of BIBD’s CSR main initiatives in nurturing future leaders.
As an outreach programme for the youth, ‘BIBD Camp Generation Y’ aims to encourage Bruneian youth to test their ability in developing leadership, teamwork, competence and endurance skills upon completing each task arranged for the camp participants. It is also a platform for BIBD to instill and nurture high values among the younger youths thus providing them with proper guidance for their future.
Most of the activities arranged will be focused on harnessing the youths’ leadership and teambuilding skills. The camp activities will concentrate primarily on the five important pillars of the camp which is Economy, Education, Information Technology, Environment and Leadership.
Other exciting activities have also been lined up for the camp participants throughout the three days such as team building workshops, dialogues on self improvement, endurance games, an Awards Night as well as a treat to camp participants – with a special appearance of a Youth Icon, which BIBD wish to make it a surprise.
‘BIBD Camp Generation Y’ is organized by BIBD and supported by two independent organizations – KatakIjau Humanitarian Relief Support Group, a voluntary group which undertakes humanitarian works and voluntary relief projects and ISMS (Islamic Management & Services Sdn Bhd) a company that provides advisory services.
