Youth Camp 'ReAlevant' 2023

Updated: Jan 25




Camp Relevant was a transformative gathering for youths seeking to grow in their faith and fellowship. The event, which included 75 participants, took place from 9-11 December at the Centre for Performance Transformation (CPT) campsite. It was a focused time of seeking God communally. Many youths expressed the close connection they felt with God through the powerful and heartfelt worship sessions. Every session was dynamic, freeing the youths to worship God with all their heart and might.


Impactful sharing was given by Jason Wong on the first two days of camp and Ps Daniel Phun on the final day. God used Jason Wong to testify about him being an ordinary boy who was bullied at school, transforming him into a prisons officer. His talk about "second chances" liberated many youths who felt un-noticed and in need of a second chance. Daniel Phun’s compelling message entitled “Finish it!” convicted the hearts of many youths and leaders on God’s wonderful plan for them (Jeremiah 29:11), encouraging them to wake up every day saying, “God, I want your plan!”


The camp was filled with fun and activity planned both for day and night. This included solving mysteries, witnessing some great character portrayal, acting by our youth leaders, teamwork in groups, and informal conversations over delicious home-cooked food and cup noodles. With great activity and food, it is no wonder many feed back that one of their highlights was the fellowship at camp. We extend our heartfelt gratitude to all the amazing helpers, including those from Bartley Christian Church, Faith Sanctuary, and Oasis BRMC Mission, who journeyed with SU through the camp planning and beyond.


Below is a testimony from a camper:



"This year’s camp was meaningful for me. It marked the day when I surrendered myself and accepted Christ as my Lord and Savior. For the past year, I have been actively going to church and also partaking in ITE fellowship. But I have never really accepted God. I was hesitant due to my circumstances. One of which was me being undeserving, to be a child of God because of my sinful past. What really changed my perspective was during the worship session on Day 2 (10th December 2023). The speaker, Jason Wong was talking about his yellow ribbon project; emphasizing  “second chance”.


I just felt God knew my struggle and was speaking to me directly and comforting me. On Day 1, I took the first step and on Day 2 God took the rest of the ninety-nine steps towards me. Honestly it was comforting and reassuring. I felt it deep in my heart, knowing everyone deserves a second chance and that I am no exception.


I had always been struggling and resisting my urge to step up. Something was always holding me back, as though being chained but God freed me. I felt great as I finally let all my emotions out. I have always been doing things on my own, keeping my own emotions to myself. Ultimately I knew I was not strong enough to do this all by myself. But thankfully, I now have God with me, I feel more assured. I am grateful for the church community and everyone who prayed for me. You guys are the reason I have experienced the goodness of God! As I am still new to this community, I will continue to explore and read more of the word of God. Overall, this youth camp was a meaningful one for me. I’ve learnt a lot from it".

I am looking forward to the next SU youth camp!


Finally I'll end with a bible verse;

"For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, 'plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future."

Jeremiah 29:11
