In Cambodia, the Sisters gathered four hundred youth from three different Salesian schools in the province for a youth camp.  Don Bosco School Teuk Thla, in the capital city of Phnom Penh, welcomed the students to its campus to stay overnight for two days of a truly Salesian experience of eating, learning, and playing. 

The first day of the camp the students collaborated, many using the vocational skills taught to them at the Sisters’ schools, to cook dinner in their assigned groups for a camp wide food competition. 


Later that night, the camp congregated for a bonfire and display of the students’ dramatic talents. Gathered in darkness around the bonfire, the students experienced God as the guiding light of life. The evening ended with a traditional Don Bosco goodnight from the superior of the Teuk Thla community. The second day of the camp started with early morning mass and the Gospel of the prodigal son declaring God’s mercy and compassion. After mass, the sisters testified to the Gospel providing six talks on various topics such as the life of Don Bosco, the history of the Sisters’ mission in Cambodia, and the lives of the saints. 

Don Bosco School Teuk Thla became a playground that afternoon when the students teamed up in their groups to compete in outdoor games. The camp closed with prizes for the winning groups and thanksgiving to the Sisters for their efforts in organizing the camp. Youth camp 2017, in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, was a display of the Salesian oratorian heart that brings the joy of the Gospel to life for young people.
