APPRECIATING LIFE
Once a person has taken a good look into his/her own person and has appreciated his own person in a more optimistic manner, the stage is now set for taking a peek at what’s outside. A person can now appreciate his life in the context of God’s creation. In this session, the campers are instructed to enjoin themselves into a prayerful mood. One can only appreciate life as God’s gift when one seriously reflects and meditates on it. Unquestionably, God has given us all the wonderful gift of life. Hence, there is a great need to give thanks to God of the Father for having created us. One must celebrate because of God’s giving you life.

CITIZENSHIP IN THE WORLD

This word is tantamount to immersing one’s own person in his very own context. As an example, for one to become truly knowledgeable and appreciative of his Filipino roots, he/she must stay in own birth place and get to know who and what are those involved in your local society. A person who wants to be  a leader of a society; if he wants truly lead the people , one must totally immersed in the said society where he plans to belong to.

RESPONSIBLE SERVICE
One can be able to say he/she is responsible and capable of serving others only when he/she has fully undergone the first five (5) formative sessions (FACTO). Responsible Service is already a summation of how one understands and appreciates his/her own person in terms of strengths, potentials and weaknesses, his/her life as a gift from God, his/her own context, and his/her role and function.
