Young Catholic Leader (YCL) 2017 runs from December 11-15 at Highland Home Christian Camp in the beautiful Pohangina Valley in the Manawatu. YCL asks participants to take part in a variety of activities to encourage and form them in Catholic leadership.
The special emphasis of this event is on what it means to be a Catholic leader 24/7, not just at school. Activities focus on prayer, service, collaboration, challenge, and personal commitment.
There are a number of talks given by young adults and outdoor activities such as physical challenges. Beyond the sessions, students participate in group building, Catholic prayer and Mass, and the normal duties associated with being on camp for 4 days – including working in the kitchen. The event is run by the Catholic Diocese of Palmerston North by professional and volunteer staff, and supported by the staff of Highland Home.
The Health and Safety system for the event includes the following documentation:
