Mission Statement

World Camp enriches the lives of children in disadvantaged communities throughout the world. Fun, educational camps build each child's self-worth and encourage community pride by raising awareness about locally challenging issues through workshops and games. World Camp aids in every community's mission to have happy, educated children with aspirations for the future.

Description

World Camp is dedicated to providing simple, sustainable solutions to the complex problems of poverty and HIV in disadvantaged communities. We work with youth infected and affected by HIV, providing education, health, and social services. We believe these investments will support a new generation of adults who will help end the cycle of poverty within their communities. We provide our partner communities with the skills and infrastructure necessary to support their own development over the long term.

Would you recommend World Camp?

I volunteered with World Camp in January of 2010 and cannot imagine a better volunteer experience or organization. The 4-week program in Malawi was perfect for me as a first time international volunteer. We spent 4 days at each rural primary schools teaching about HIV, environmental degradation, and gender empowerment. World Camp's detailed curriculum and thorough in-country orientation lets teachers and non-teachers thrive in the classroom. World Camp takes a sustainable approach that I truly respect. World Camp focuses on education, fostering critical thinking, and building local capacity as opposed to infrastructure or handing out small loans. As a result, World Camp students emerge from camps with new information as well as a more critical and productive worldview. It was an amazing feeling leaving after just four days at a school knowing my students had the tools to become a driving force for change in their own communities.
