Summer Camps for Underprivileged Children
Come to Ghana and have fun with the kids! Turn their school holidays into an enjoyable learning experience using games, hobbies and creative activities. You'll use fun activities to teach them English, games, sports, arts/crafts, drama/music, magic, face-painting ... and more. The idea is to keep them entertained and perhaps teach them some skills at the same time.
We provide equipment and materials for games, competitions and general fun stuff, plus a daily meal (unfortunately, sometimes this is the only meal they get). The camps are much more relaxed and not quite so structured, but they're a lot of fun! and the kids adore them!
