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 own development


SAAYC camps focus on various elements of development through fun filled activities with the aim of getting youth to be more active through guided outdoor activities by trained instructors.
