Reflecting on Timeless

I made amazing new friends, I learnt heaps about my faith and all the sessions brought me closer so much closer to God.” That was the rapt response of one of 30 young people from year seven and eight who took part in “Timeless” the first Archdiocesan youth camp in Melbourne. 

The “Timeless” school holiday youth camp was an opportunity for young people from all over the Archdiocese to get away from the hustle and bustle of daily life and give time to God and each other. In a few fun-filled days campers were invited to consider the wonder of our timeless God crashing into the normal, everyday here and now as they journeyed through the liturgical calendar.
Starting in Advent and ending in Ordinary time campers unpacked the significance of each liturgical season, and how we are invited to respond in our daily life. Within small groups lead by members of the Melbourne National Evangelisation Team, campers had the opportunity to participate in Mass, Reconciliation, and Adoration.
And it wouldn’t have been a complete school-holiday camp experience without campers trying their hand at archery, experiencing the thrill of the flying fox, having the adrenaline rush of the giant swing, and late-night laugh sessions with new friends.
Many of the campers’ parents and family members joined the “Timeless” gang for the final Mass together before campers headed home exhausted but looking forward to participating in the youth camp again in 2016. 
The AOY looks forward to running another Youth Camp in the September school holidays of 2016!
