Going to Camp

Every year the Malawi Education PCVs organize Camp Sky, a weeklong camp for the Form 4 (12th grade) students to give them an extra boost in English, Mathematics, Biology and Physical Science in preparation for the National exams. Unlike their normal classes, the students selected for this camp will be learning in classes of 20 students, and they will have materials to do lab practicals for the science classes. There are classes during the day, and then group activities like songs, skits and games in the evenings.

Two students from my school were chosen to attend the camp this year! They are both very excited to get to take part. Their selection was based on their JCE scores, their answers to the application questions and a letter of recommendation from their teacher.

The camp is taught by PCVs. I applied to be a teacher and... I was selected! I will be teaching Biology, specifically evolution and genetics. We will have a lab practical involving DNA and we will organize a Forensics activity as well.

The camp is primarily paid for through donations by friends and family of PCVs. We are still short on funds for the camp though. If you are interested in making a tax-deductible donation, feel so free!

Here is the link to read about the camp and to make a donation
