After two years of being kept apart by the COVID-19 pandemic, over 40 youth members from JYC @ Children’s Society (GIG @ JYC) were finally able to come together for Reconnect, a three-day camp at D’Resort in Pasir Ris from Wednesday, 30 November 2022 to Friday, 2 December 2022.

It provided an opportunity for the youth members and staff to bond and rekindle friendships, says Mr Solomon Ng, Counsellor at JYC @ Children’s Society. “Social interaction was hindered during the pandemic, given that many were isolating and there were strict group sizes when hanging out with friends. This gave everyone a chance to reconnect.”

The camp kicked off with icebreakers and group activities to loosen the participants up.

On the second day, they then hit the high seas, pairing off for kayaking, a sport that allowed them to foster teamwork skills and learn about water safety. It also gave them a chance to work up an appetite for a night of barbecue, drinks and music.
