Known for providing impactful education to students from across the globe through in-person activities and expeditions, Africamp introduces a fun filled summer schedule for students that helps develop essential real-life skills such as collaboration, survival skills, decision making, entrepreneurship, cultural responsibility, team building and more.
Open to students 8-14 years old and adults over the age of 18, the camps include
accommodation, three meals a day, transfer to and from airport, supervision of activities, sports and excursions. The upcoming camp is from the 2nd to the 9th of July.
Africamp is the camping program of Assalam which takes place throughout the year with different periods and groups. This project
saves some time for themselves, decide what they really want to do in their lives and give better decisions for their life.
The campers develop their spoken English and Swahili from natives, be involved in volunteering projects actively, attend workshops about the culture of Africa or many others while enjoying the turquoise sea, white sand, water sports, sun and ecological village life.
While the children enjoy camp life, parents can explore Zanzibar which islovely,especially in the coast, where many people kite surf, sunbathe, dive, wander around spice gardens, and sample local cuisine.
Founder of Assalam Community Foundation, Dr. Hatice Çolak Ali has a Phd from international relations from University of Vienna. After managed CSR (Corporate social responsibility) departments for many years in big corporate companies and taught at universities about CSR and social entrepreneurship, she decided to move Africa and founded an NGO which creates big impact in small communities.
Hattice said, “Africamp gives children the opportunity to disconnect from their everyday life and connect to other campers and staff and struck up life-long friendships. They get exposed to new ideas, cultures, games and habits and develop better language skills either in English or Kiswahili.
Other activities in Africamp include swimming in the cave, building marble tracks, terrain games, board games, village Tour by Bicycle, visit a local house, karaoke, puzzle hunt, sports games and many more.
