Day one (campers’ arrival day) is usually coloured with cultural/traditional themes. This is intentionally done so that the children have a smooth transition between life at home and that of camp. It helps the children settle and get into camp culture and environment.
CITW invited some local village leaders for them to bless the camp and be updated about developments within the program. This has been a very important tradition in keeping their ownership of the program fresh at all times. During their hours in camp, they participated in a number of planning and discussion meetings. They also played a number of games to have a feel of camp teaching and learning methodologies. CITW had also hired a traditional dancing troop to welcome the campers in a traditional way.
