PURPOSE

To give youth, particularly from poor communities, an opportunity to expand their knowledge and experience in a wholesome and structured setting geared towards building character and self-esteem; to offer a curriculum that includes Afrikan history, cultural awareness and physical development; to bring them into contact with adults committed to being positive role models, thus filling a void in their lives; to provide a meaningful alternative to summers of “just hanging out” with “nothing to do”; to offer survival skills for functioning in a chaotic system that has seemingly failed them. Camp Pumziko has grown tremendously since 1994 and the progress can be measured by the campers who have returned each year and through the dedication of those that attended as campers and are now returning to be counselors themselves.
