CITW SA hosted the first ever overnight adventure camp at Gugulesizwe Cultural Centre, South Africa, June 2015

30 Vululwazi Primary School children from the nearby Kwampukane village enjoyed their first ever outdoor camping experience.  They were joined by other novice campers – 5 Beach Camp staff and management members who are all CITW Eco-Mentors.

WESSA’s Ray Ngubane led the camp programme which covered team building (putting up your own accommodation for the night), grasslands (spending time in the grasslands making grass crafts whilst learning more about the grasslands surrounding their villages) and coastal forests which occur on the edges of their villages.

Food was prepared by local community members and the after dinner entertainment was a Talent Show where campers entertained each other in song and dance.

The chairman of the community trust joined the campers for dinner and the show.

Everyone had such a good time on this new kind of CITW camp that no-one wanted to go home.  We look forward to hosting more of these camps which enables CITW to have more and more children from the schools enjoy learning more about the environment while enjoying their own natural areas on their doorsteps.
