Sunshine Youth Camp is a youth ministry strategy developed from the 40 mission issues
in Taiwan Youth Convention. The former Secretary of Youth Ministry Committee, Rev.
Lyim, Hong-Tiong took the advice from youths to hold Sunshine Youth Camp with the
ideas from the camp held by the students from “Tainan Theological College and Seminary”
and youths from Chiayi Presbytery.
PCT Youth Ministry Committee has promoted Sunshine Youth Camp as a brand-positioning
camp since 2001. By carrying out the experiential education pioneer, Dr. John Dewey’s
educational philosophy “Learning by doing”, we expect to cultivate the youths’ lives
Sunshine Youth Camp is a camp incorporated with experiential education and Christian
faith. Through adventure education, life education, morning and evening devotion,
youth nights, commitment nights, and group dynamic activities, the youths would
open their hearts and encounter the Lord during the camp. Adventure education encourages
youths to leap out of their comfort zones, and build up team consciousness. With
the life education during the camp, the participants in each team will have life
dialogues. Those teenagers will also reflect on their lives through the activity
of adventure education, and then, become an individual who cares about others and
Sunshine Youth Camp is divided into three steps.
Step 1：The Youth Ministry Committee will hold the demonstration winter camp on winter
Step 2：PCT Youth Ministry Committee will offer trainings to the summer camp staff
Step 3：PCT Youth Ministry Committee will encourage each presbytery/district to hold
Sunshine Youth Camp with the local context.
