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 2020, our traditional family day gathering will be held in this virtual communal space. Camp Pumziko families will join to hear youth share both lessons learned and skills acquired. Youth who submit skill demonstration videos will also be presented with certificates of achievement and those who are members of our New Afrikan Scout Organization will earn points towards skill/merit badges.
