The Jati Diri Youth Camp began yesterday at the Serasa Water Sports Complex.
Organised by the Youth Section of the Youth and Sports Department, Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sports, the camp is expected to go on until March 25.
The camp is aimed at exposing youths to aggressive and challenging activities that require courage, mental toughness and physical strength.
It is also aimed at nurturing their self-confidence while also helping them to enhance cooperation and responsibility among themselves for the community, religion, race and country.
Other objectives include to nurture care towards the environment and to bring them closer and allow them to get to know the flora and fauna while also appreciating and protecting the environment and to fill the youths' free time with positive activities that are challenging.
The camp has 12 youths aged between 16 and 19 years old participating as representatives from each of the four districts.
Religious and patriotic activities, group work, hiking, abseiling, kayaking and beach games are just some of the activities being held as part of the youth camp's programme.
All the participants will be given certificates for participation at the end of the programme on March 25 at the Serasa Water Sports Complex.
