Annual CITW camp at Rocktail Camp, South Africa


We hosted another successful annual camp at Rocktail Beach Camp for 6 girls and 6 boys from each of the schools – Vululwazi and Kwamqobela Primary Schools. A teacher from each school also attended.  The extremely overcast, windy and sometimes rainy weather did not deter and the outdoor activities included beach games and a trip to Lake Sibaya.  Leadership Values, teambuilding, Web of Life / Food Chains, Turtles and the Importance of Trees were included in the programme. The children delighted in making biscuits during the Careers module.  Children love receiving Super Camper Awards. We gave Given Mbonambi (CITW Eco-Club Coordinator for Rocktail) the opportunity to be Camp Director. Under the circumstances she did extremely well and further opportunity and mentor training will refine her skills and she should be able to direct camps without supervision relatively soon.  Symon Chibaka (CITW Malawi Programme Coordinator) and Bongani Baloyi (CITW regional coordinator) were encouraging and patient giving Given guidance and suggestions on being a Camp Director.  Rocktail Camp staff took on the roles of the Eco-Mentors doubling as tent-, team- and activity leaders. All other camp staff were left to perform their normal jobs, which worked really well.
