Exhausted with the afternoon April heat and bored staring in the four corners of my room, I dragged myself with my cousin son Patrick, to this Kalipi Youth Camp in Villa Virgen Milagrosa Resort. The Youth Camp is an annual activity spearheaded by the Kalipi to welcome new members or just to congratulate the membership for a job well done in a Kalipi sponsored actions. According to Jan, who is going to see Ankor Wat this summer, the youth camp is to give thanks to the PUP students who involved themselves with time and support in PUP student council election held this year.
Through the years, the creative minds of the organizers have perfected tougher and out of this world challenges and activities for the participants to hurdle. Like on this season, I witnessed participants eating cow's eyeball and intestines, siling labuyo salad, farm snails and anything yucky, but edible (still disgusting) dishes.
What I like about the Liberal Youth Camp is that it educate the participants camaraderie, team work, strategies and values not from someone lecturing it but from every activities they underwent. You learn a lot when you are having fun.
Anyway, I had a nice day with them. I had a nice night swimming even I was there as a plain observer and as a liberal comrades.
