ILTC 2017 Interact Leadership Training Camp organised by Rotary Club of Singapore
 
The Interact Leadership Training Camp (ILTC) organised annually by the Rotary Club of Singapore is a major event in the Interact calendar. The camp’s aims are to impart the skills and spirit of volunteerism and to introduce Interactors to the Interact, Rotaract and Rotary family at large.
 
Rotarian Dr Hoh Sek Tien, Youth Service Director says, “This year the camp was unique in many ways. For the first time, Rotary Club of Singapore partnered Youth Corps Singapore to launch a completely new programme which included new elements such as ageing simulation, social inclusion dialogue, cross cultural communication in addition to leadership training. The camp location was also a first, with Temasek Polytechnic’s Glocal Connect Village coming in as host of the 3-day 2-night stay-in camp.”
 
The camp was held from 28-30 July 2017.
