"Camp Visão taught me so much about the essence of teaching and youth development especially in a post conflict setting. This experience allowed me to take the leap into international development work, with a clear understanding of progress one child at a time."
BENEFITS OF CAMP VISAO
Because our camp is run during school holidays, participants have an opportunity to attend our full range of classes and workshops. During the school year other commitments can often prevent this from happening.
Other benefits include:
1. Group bonding
2. Overcoming challenges
3. Gained confidence
4. Positive interaction with adults in an informal session
Camp Visão has inspired more than 350 learners since 2005 to become better learners and increase their grades, confidence and motivation. Over the past ten years our students have displayed a range of progress such as:
1. Increased confidence, motivation, and focus
2. Enhanced reading, writing communication and social skills
3. Improved grades in school
4. Increased test results
5. Additionally over 80% of our graduates continue to use skills acquired at Camp Visão’s to achieve success in their lives after graduating.
