Soar towards a Summer Adventure, prepare for a wild trip with Camp South Africa.

Partake in the Camp South Africa teaching project, with the option to combine this option with sports coaching. With an itinerary comprising time in a Primary School and Special Needs School, you’ll gain a wealth of diverse experience and develop a range of new skills.

If you’d rather avoid the classroom, don’t worry! Our sports program is the most-popular option amongst Camp South Africa applicants and has consistently proved a sure-fire hit with students and participants alike; no experience is necessary, simply bring a positive attitude and a desire to make a difference in the local community via sport.

While PE isn’t a subject included on the curriculum in South Africa, rest assured, students are sports fanatics and your influence will be appreciated!

South Africa is home to incredible opportunities that can truly transform your post-Camp experience: buckle up for an eight-day road trip from Port Elizabeth to Cape Town, scout some of South Africa’s stunning wildlife with the Camp South Africa Safari Experience, brave a bungee jump or ten-thousand feet skydive, or even shack up in an underground cage next to a shark – the choice is yours!

Itinerary

🏏 Sports coaching – overview

  • Coaching takes place from Monday-Friday 9:00am-4:00pm
  • On a normal day, you will leave the accommodation at about 8:30am and return at about 5:00pm. We say ‘on a normal day’ because as you will quickly find out, the way of life in South Africa is very relaxed and plans often change, so you may get a few half days off here and there!
  • Participants will coach in three different schools a day for about an hour and a half at each, and you will be transported to and from each by the team in South Africa.

📕 Teaching English – overivew

  • Teaching takes place Monday-Friday 9:00am-1:30pm.
  • On a normal day, you will leave the accommodation at about 8:30am and return at about 2:30pm. We say ‘on a normal day’ because as you will quickly find out, the way of life in South Africa is very relaxed and plans often change, so you may end up only doing half a day.
  • Teachers will usually stay in the same school for the day, and alternate the schools during the week. However, volunteers can choose which school they prefer if wanted.
  • Due to the varying amount of children that may need extra help each day, teachers often volunteer for slightly fewer hours than coaches.
