Fundraising/Donations Needed for Camp Pumziko

It's our primary goal for all of our youth to have the quintessential summer camp experience - learning exciting new, fun and educational skills, set in the heart of nature.

Sharing living quarters and responsibilities with a group of same-aged campers from various cities, states and countries is not only a tremendous amount of fun, but also a great opportunity for personal growth and garnering of long lasting friendships.

Making decisions independently of the family, working as a team toward a common goal, and learning the skill of compromising, are character-building lessons that develop lifetime substance.

We gather only the very best experienced friendly staff, select the very best accommodations and utilize the most appropriate equipment.

Providing all of this, during a 7-day 6-night sleep-away camp, for our youth true value is intangible. However, the actual monetary cost is $1,000 per camper. This is significantly greater than the current registration fee. It is because we target the inclusion of our youth from underserved marginalized communities, we strive to keep the fees as low as possible.

To defray the actual cost, we rely heavily on dedicated and enthusiastic volunteer staff. And we have an ongoing fundraising campaign, both on-line and in our communities. This combination, in addition to soliciting financial and in-kind donations, help to supplement the true cost of camp.

We are pleased to bring

to the community:

 Virtual Camp Pumziko July 20- July 25

Youth from around the country will gather on the Zoom digital platform for a week of engaging sessions centered on acquiring skills relevant to this current moment and the protracted movement of our people.

Camp Pumziko's age cohorts will be reestablished in both form and organizational structure during virtual camp. Which simply means, our Pakas (ages 6-8), Chuis (ages 9-10), Simbas (ages 11-12), and Panthers (ages 13- 17) will join separate ZOOMS each day for lessons, dialogue, and activities that are developmentally appropriate.

Our sessions will feature the following topics:

  • Political Education 
  • Urban Survivalism  
  • Media Activism        
  • Health and Wellness

On Saturday, July 25th, our traditional family day gathering will be held in this virtual communal space. Camp Pumziko families will join in to hear youth share both lessons learned and skills acquired. Youth who submit skill demonstration videos will also be presented certificates of achievement. And members of our New Afrikan Scout Organization will earn points towards their skill/merit badges.
