The annual Salesian summer camps held at Savio College were this year described as an “extraordinary success”, attracting 382 boys and girls for five weeks of non-stop activity.

The aim, the Salesians say, is to offer holistic formation during the summer months for boys and girls from all over the island. The activities offer spaces for prayer, formation and recreation in a typical Salesian environment.

A wonderful experience for the participating adolescents

The camps remain focused on giving participants a personal and spiritual journey.

Holy Mass, formation sessions and moments of reflection and prayer featured daily, a spokes-man noted.

Guided by the Salesian vocation promoter in Malta, Fr Louis Grech, and Br Clint Rizzo, 62 young Salesian animators generously offered five weeks of their summer to provide “a wonderful experience” for the participating adolescents.

“In a contemporary culture which mostly promotes individualism and materialism, it is truly amazing to see so many young people ready to freely offer their energy to be of service to other young people,” the spokesman remarked.
