VALUE PROPOSITION
This camp is aimed at provoking the Total development of the Nigerian Youth. Also activating the Entrepreneurial Spirit of the Young Nigerian, which is complementary to the Formal Degrees that they are, sometimes, compelled to obtain from tertiary institutions and also enhance their outlook to life vis-à-vis the realities obtainable in life.
BENEFITS OF THE CAMP
Participants will immediately enjoy:
1.      A Spirit of Enterprise, which has proven to be indispensable and crucial to the life of every adult in our dispensation.
2.      A Paradigm Shift, achieved from the interaction with Professionals in the Faculties and Skill Schools. These Professionals primarily have academic degrees in disciplines that are not related to their current Vocations. This value is key for the Participants to understand.
3.      Social Interaction: the targeted head count for this camp is 200 Children from classes JSS 1 to SS2. This exposes each participant to another capacity of interaction and social networking.
4.      Spiritual Guidance: primarily, this camp is guided by a Christian (Biblical) Standard and therefore, the participants will be taken through basic principles of godliness, Christian values and the responsibility of Christian lifestyles.
5.      Cognitive/Logical Empowerment: As a result of the pseudo-academic modules that will be expounded in the Camp, the participants will be helped towards learning how to adapt academics to life, apply academics to social and enhance their capacity to grow.
OUR PROMISE
Having worked with Children of various age brackets (including Teenagers and Adolescents), we are confident that the campers will find this camp experience impactful and leading to a life of commitment and growth.
