Camp is a chance for the program children to get out of their normal settings and to spend time away from the slums in a healthy, stimulating environment focused on learning and fun. This year’s camp will run from August 5th to the 17th with a total of 350 campers.
5th -7th August – Grammar camp (2 nights)
8th – Rest day
9th- 11th August – leadership camp (2 nights)
11th- 17th August – senior camp (6 nights)
The camping season is approaching quickly. Children are particularly excited and anxious due to the change of venue from previous years. The team settled on Enoomatasiani Girls High School due to its accessibility, beautiful scenery, security and moderate facilities offered by the school. The camp planning team has ensured that everything is in place and the key players have put their respective houses in order. Once booking of the venue took place, the stage was set for the rest of the planning. Potential camp leaders have made applications for supplies and are eagerly waiting for the material day. In addition to having fun, camp will also boost the children’s cognitive, psychomotor and affective skills. Indeed it is a very important exercise in the children’s growth and development. I wish to wholeheartedly thank the NCRA sponsors, supporters and well-wishers for their input which will enable this important experience to take place. I wish to thank everyone who will donate their money, time and ideas to ensure summer camp 2019 is successful.
