Mission Statement

Global Camps Africa changes the lives of South Africa's vulnerable children and youth by providing HIV/AIDS prevention education and training through a high-impact residential camp experience and continuing education, equipping young people with the life skills that will support them in becoming safe and productive adults who have hope for the future.

After a life-changing week at camp, the children then have the opportunity to attend our Saturday Youth Clubs which meet bi-weekly at 6 different locations, with a total of 650-1,000 kids attending on a single day.
