Important Training Camp Administration Tasks and Reminders

March 26, 2019

Mến chào quý Liên Đoàn Trưởng, quý Trưởng Ban Tổ Chức các sa mạc, quý Sa Mạc Trưởng và Sa Mạc Phó:

Mùa huấn luyện sa mạc của chúng ta đã bắt đầu, xin thay mặt Ban Chấp Hành Trung Ương gởi đến quý Trưởng những đơn và thủ tục để hoàn tất phần phúc trình sa mạc. Thêm vào đó, để bảo vệ chúng ta và tránh những trường hợp dính liếu đến luật pháp, xin quý Trưởng lưu ý đến những điều sau:

BEFORE CAMP (Ban Tổ Chức & Sa Mạc Trưởng)

1. All camps must have liability insurance for the training camp hosted. Please contact Tr. Biên Nguyễn (VP Admin Affairs) at bien.nguyen@veym.net if you require assistance in securing liability insurance.

2. All camp participants (Tuyên Úy, Trợ Úy, HLVs, HTs, Trợ Tá, and Sa Mạc Sinh) must be an official member of the VEYM. As such, all camp participants must have a valid membership ID number and Chapter is current with annual membership dues. Please contact Tr. Viễn Hứa (Ủy Viên Kỷ Thuật, BCHTU) at vien.hua@veym.net for assistance as needed.

3. All camp participants (Tuyên Úy, Trợ Úy, HLVs, HTs, Trợ Tá, Parents, Helpers, Guest Speakers, and Sa Mạc Sinh) must be 18 years or older, especially with Cấp 1, please ensure an ID verification process is in place to prevent minors from participating.

4. All camp participants (Tuyên Úy, Trợ Úy, HLVs, HTs, Trợ Tá, Parents, Helpers, Guest Speakers, and Sa Mạc Sinh) must sign the liability waiver form attached. Those needing clarification on the liability form, please provide ample time for participants to ask questions and receive adequate response.

5. All HLVs must have current HLV faculty status with HLV ID card in order to train at camp.

6. Send a copy of the camp agenda and roster of SMS to Ban Chấp Hành Trung Ương at headquarters@veym.net two(2) weeks before the start of the training camp.

DURING CAMP (Sa Mạc Trưởng/Ban Huấn Luyện)

Theo lời yêu cầu của Cha Tổng Tuyên Úy và Ban Chấp Hành Trung Ương, xin quý Trưởng thực tập và nhấn mạnh 2 điều sau:

1. Emphasize to all training camp participants that their training as a Youth Leader does not end after Cấp 1, but ongoing and at minimum, at the completion of Cấp 3 Lãnh Đạo, Tiberia. BCHTU will open more Tiberia as needed to accommodate the needs of Phong Trào. We have approximately 80 applicants this year, a true blessing.

2. Pray the Anima Christi after Communion during Mass to help các sa mạc sinh grow closer to Christ and be united with Him in His Passion.  St. Alphonsus Liguori once wrote “there is no prayer more dear to God than that which is made after communion.” He continued that our loving thoughts and prayers after communion have greater merit then than otherwise “because they are then animated by the presence of Jesus Christ, who is united to our souls.”  Please see attachment in both English and Vietnamese.

AFTER CAMP (Sa Mạc Trưởng/Ban Huấn Luyện)

1. Please complete the training camp report (to be completed by SMT) attached and send back to headquarters@veym.net within 30 days after camp.

2. Please make available asap the link for Sa Mạc Sinh (only) to evaluate the camp immediately after the training camp: https://goo.gl/forms/rehzVzly2O4srOiJ3 (all camps will use the same link).

3. Please make available asap the link for Ban Huấn Luyện (only) to evaluate the Camp Master immediately after the training camp: https://goo.gl/forms/gBdZeMwTDGXmMQxG2(all camps will use the same link).

On behalf of the National Executive Committee (Ban Chấp Hành Trung Ương), thank you for your ongoing support, service and love to Phong Trào.

In His Love,
Đaminh Hoàng Công Thái Dương
President, National Executive Committee
