We know almost everyone likes buffet. It is when we have a big variety of food on display that we get to choose what we want to eat and drink.
iBridge Camp programmes are designed specially to cater to different needs and interests like a buffet menu.
Some of you are more interested to come to learn. Some are thinking of having a break away from the city.

Dilemma? Confusions? Worries?

"Welcome to the world!" 
Isn't that a familiar phrase that our seniors told us when we first started work? 
Being a young adult in the working world comes with a new set of challenges.

When we were still students, it was easy to see the path that we would be going. After graduating from university or college, the transition to be in the workforce can be quite daunting. The uncertainties that loom in. The process of adapting to a new environment. The responsibilities that come with adulthood. Trust us, this process doesn't stop there.

After working for a few years, you might find yourself at the crossroads again. It's like going back to the days when you once faced the fresh graduates' dilemma. The only difference this time is you carry more skills and work experiences with you. You also have more things and commitments to care about: family, relationships, finance, church involvement etc.

We face transitions at different points of our lives. That is a fact we constantly remind ourselves to face it whether we like it or not. The process is indeed challenging and uncomfortable. It can be exhausting. Somehow we need to move on in order to move forward. Sigh... We understand you.

Let's take a break from all these worries! Come join us for camp and be refreshed again!
