The three-day camp began on Friday at the Immigration Service Institute of Training and Development. It provided professional flag-raising and marching training for youth leaders from different schools, allowing them to experience formal disciplinary training received by the officers of the Immigration Department.

The events, including cultural exhibitions, cultural performances and booth games, were designed to give students the chance to experience the country's culture and history, improve their national identity and better understand the Constitution.
