The Southern African Association of Youth Clubs Summer Camps present an environment where young people are moulded, guided and skilled to enhance their sense of responsibility and maximise their individual and collective energies for personal development and that of the broader society.  

SAAYC has used camps as great tools to teach the youth value of Ubuntu and patriotism that contribute to social cohesion and prompt active citizenry and community service. 

The Organisation has thus initiated annual youth camps as a vehicle through which young people from diverse backgrounds and provinces converge in one setting to learn and share inspirational experiences that will guide them towards their own development.

2019 the main topics will be Leadership,   Social Cohesion ,Global and Active Citizenship, ICT Trends  and the Best Youth Club Models  as building foundations for the outdoor activities.

The 2019 camp will be hosted from 02-06 December 2019 Sweet Dale ,Margate in Kwa Zulu Natal . SAAYC aims to contribute 100% towards the camp as a subsidy for members throuh the assistance of stragic partners and donors .

Each participant is expected to  meet the critetria of the SAAYC Membership Loyalty Programme.
