brought together about 260 participants from various walks of life. The event was held on the grounds of S.S. Peter and Paul Major Seminary in Bodija, Ibadan from August 27th-29th, 2013. We had special speakers, a Gospel message, dancing competition, a talent show, swimming , games and more. Some of the games that we had were a 3-legged race, sack race, table tennis, water games, volleyball, trampoline, bouncy castle and parachute. Not only did the children have a lot of fun, but so did the adults. We had a 3-legged race and sack race for some of the caregivers and volunteers; it was a lot of fun. There was also some running races with the adults, and the children had fun cheering them on. Everyone enjoyed the water fights we had and most people were soaked! The water gun fights was the highlight of the games. Individuals were chased around, and some dunked in the swimming pool. Almost everyone was wet, but we all had a lot of fun. Everyone in attendance enjoyed a daily snack pack, drinks and a hot meal. On the final day, every child went home with a gift suited to their age group. Medical teams and doctors from University College Hospital were in attendance as emergency personnel.
In attendance was the Commissioner of Information, Honourable Taiwo Otegbeye and some other dignitaries. We would like to say a special thank you to all those that donated to this year’s camp –S.S.
