The youth were divided into four teams as many of the games were competitive – incentivising the participants to do their best to secure the winning position. After a prayer to the Lord, the fun and games began, with a cooking session where the participants had hands on experience with making their favourite sweet treats including biscuits and designing cupcakes.
