Be a Camp Counsellor in Africa this Summer
The team is staying at Axim Beach Hotel. Situated directly on a sun-drenched tropical beach, it has traditional Ghanaian style accommodation with modern facilities and genuine local hospitality. It is safe, with air conditioning and fresh drinking water provided daily. During down time, enjoy the magnificent long sandy beach, delicious fresh food and the African way of life.
Axim Beach is situated on the coast near the tropical rain forest of Ghana's Western region, just a short drive away from our project site. We'll enjoy the peaceful surroundings, having team meetings by bonfire on the beach. This special setting adds to the overall volunteer experience for the team.
Akwaaba! Come join us this summer for a once in a life time experience volunteering with children in Ghana, Africa! Whether it's a memory of your first time learning a sport, or your favorite sing-along tune, camp memories are unique and something to be cherished for life.
You and your fellow volunteers will provide the opportunity for many Ghanian children to experience camp for the first time. Camp will allow them time to spend with friends outside of a classroom setting, and a chance to both explore their artistic & athletic talents, as well as their team building skills! In addition to volunteering with local children, your trip will include exciting weekend excursions such as venturing in a dugout canoe ride to one of the most unique stilt villages in the world, spending a day in the beautiful beach town of Cape Coast, and stepping back in history while visiting a world renowned slave castle! You will also have plenty of time to freely explore the local area, and learn more about the cultures around you. This program is generously sponsored by Endeavour Mining. We’d love to have you join us!
