Our annual HIV-prevention day camps are coming up! Summer volunteers will be visiting partner communities to work with middle school age children to teach them about HIV-prevention, sanitation issues, deforestation, and to lead meaningful explorations of gender disparities. Each summer this program reaches at least 500 children.
Camp Hope combines education and traditional camp activities to create an environment where children are understood and accepted. Programming provides HIV-positive children with the social and emotional support they need to regain their sense of optimism, possibility and hope. Help send a child to Camp this year.
WCCs are after-school student activism clubs started by World Camp in our partner communities. These clubs serve many purposes, including: encouraging youth participation in community problem-solving, providing youths with a space to see their true potential, providing constructive use of after-school time, and increasing youths' senses of self-efficacy. Help us foster our WC Clubs!

That's a very limited life. Life can... read more >>
