Training Day Camp for chaplaincy volunteers

95

The Training Day Camp for chaplaincy volunteers was smoothly held on August 19, 2012 at Hong Kong Baptist Theological Seminary. The Day Camp was jointly organized by 17 chaplaincy offices with an aim to “gather, motivate and train” volunteers who commit themselves to serve with chaplains in various hospitals. There were around 270 participants and each team introduced themselves with an unique slogan followed by hymn singing. Rev. Joshua W T Tso, President of Hong Kong Baptist Theological Seminary gave a short and encouraging sharing to all volunteers. A 10 minutes film was shown to express appreciation and recognition to volunteers from medical staff and chaplaincy committees. 8 workshops were held in the morning as well as in the afternoon. The Camp was well received by the volunteers and they found it a good gathering and learning opportunity for them.
