Positively Impact South Africa's Youth

Empowering South Africa's Youth for the Future

Camp Sizanani delivers more than an unforgettable camp experience. Our camp program is designed to empower, educate, and change the trajectory of young lives.

Founded in 2003, Camp Sizanani Life Skills is an residential camp for young people ages 12-18 in Soweto. We strive to empower campers with critical life skills they need to lead healthy, productive lives– no matter what challenges they face.  Our five high impact programmes are designed to be engaging and informative about HIV/AIDS, Health and Wellness, Gender Dynamics, General Life Skills, Business and Entrepreneurship.  Programmes consist of specific classes and life skills learning through fun activities such as sports, market days, story telling, theatre, arts and crafts  and academics. We believe attending camp can change a child’s life. 

Camp Sizanani Life Skills is a registered Non-Profit Organization (NPO) with the Department of Social Development (NPO 125-096) and a registered Public Benefit Organization (PBO) with the South African Revenue Service (PBO 930-036-322). 

Camp Sizanani Life Skills is a B-BBEE charity. By making a cash donation to a B-BBEE charity, a company may improve its Social Economic Development Score and bolster its overall BEE rating. Camp Sizanani Life Skills will send you a Section 18a certificate for tax benefit to facilitate this.

Community Building & Empowerment

Camp brings people and ideas together. The Camp Sizanani environment is ideal for creating lasting friendships. Campers develop trust and receive support from vochellis, our camp counselors.  Vochellis partner with campers to foster a sense of community service and hope for the future.  Campers leave Sizanani with the knowledge that they are empowered to change their lives and their communities for the better.

Life Skills Training & Health Education

At Camp Sizanani, daily Life Skills sessions empower youth with the tools and information they need for a positive future. Life Skills are the core of Camp Sizanani, and the curriculum includes reproductive health, nutrition and hygiene, gender equity, leadership, abuse, rights and responsibilities, and an introduction to financial literacy.

Experiential Learning & Self-Esteem Development

Camp gives kids space to enjoy fun and adventure without the stress of their everyday lives.  Using interactive learning tools, Camp Sizanani’s trained counselors help young people gain self-confidence and a sense of agency that they can take back and use to overcome challenges at home.
