Written by  Emmanuel Emeh - Lagos, Nigeria Tuesday, 21 June 2011 09:22

It’s official! We are more than excited to announce this year’s International Campus Leadership Conference (ICLC)! This year’s event promises to be more exciting and inspiring than the previous two editions.

Our theme for the 2011 ICLC is “Taking it Higher”. For the first time, we
shall be housing all participants in one place! Our venue is the new, state-of-the –art New Era Youth Camp (NEYOCA), located in the serene and emerging Lekki Free Trade Zone at the outskirt of Lagos. NEYOCA is 1.5 mile's walk from Atlantic Ocean’s Akodo Beach.

Participants will enjoy a rare vacation away from the hustle and bustle of city life and pressure of school, while learning tons and building lifelong friendships.The event takes place from Thursday, August 25th – Sunday, 28th 2011.

The program will feature citizenship / leadership capacity building, fun times and community service platforms amongst others. This year’s participants are expected from 35 universities across the Nigeria, including a few from the neighboring Benin Republic, Ghana, Cote d’Ivoire and the United States of America.

The four-day event will feature notable mentors and speakers in spiritual matters, youth, social, health and human resource development who will be teaching the ethics and driving force required to take it higher in key areas of our lives.

The students will also be giving back to the society as we partner with the Ibeju-Lekki Local Government Council in a grand community service effort.

On the fun part, an elaborate and creative dinner party will hold on Saturday 27th presided by Beach Party and Burn fire on Friday night. Lots of sporting activities have been planned, including camel and house back riding, early morning physical exercises, aerobics, treasure hunt, fishing and more!

Limited slots have been reserved for some mature teens, students in Senior Secondary schools, NYSC members and “JAMBites”.

All these will cost a ridiculously subsidized fee of N5,000 ($50) per participant! Note that this subsidy is made possible by generous donations of kind-hearted individuals, the Lagos Church Office and corporate sponsors.

Registration will close on Sunday, 31st of July 2011. Please pay early as capacity is limited.
