Youth Village - Youth Camp

Youth Village project hosts first mega 'Youth Camp' in Soweto, 2 - 5 April 2012

The camp was attended by 80 children from around Soweto as well as Johannesburg and surrounds. Children from 8 to 18 years enjoyed 4 days of this fun-filled and life changing camp that included the ART Excel (All Round Training in Excellence) program for children 8-12 years and YES (Youth Empowerment Seminar) program for teenagers 13-18 years. The camp featured career counseling, motivational speakers, creative art and dance workshops.

This camp is a milestone for the Youth Village project for two reasons: 

  1. The initiatives have extended beyond Dobsonville and into the greater Soweto area,

  2. This is the first time that ART Excel Course was held in Soweto.

Over 50 children attending the Youth Camp were orphans or come from indigent families and were sponsored by the Youth Village Project.
