CITW South Africa Trails camp in Kruger National Park, South Africa, August 2015

Once again we hosted two successful single-sex CITW camps on Pafuri Trails again.  Eight girls and two female elders,eight boys and two male elders participated. The Makuleke Tribal Authority selected the elders. Pafuri Trails staff worked in the camps, an Eco-Training guide did back-up and Lindy Nieuwenhuizen from Just Footprints volunteered on the camp.

There was a mix of children who had attended CITW Pafuri camps at primary school, children who had participated in CITW Eco-Clubs at primary school and children who were new to the CITW programme.  The daily programme was the same for both boys’ and girls’ camps. Topics covered Leadership Values, Gratitude, a mammal research project, and presentation skills, Diversity, Biodiversity, Natural and Cultural Makuleke Heritage. Game drives are always a highlight.  The highlight on the girls’ camp was a daytime visit by a young pangolin.
