The Spirit Education Foundation concluded Youth Month this past weekend on the ultimate high as we took 120 high school scholars from 10 different partnership schools on camp to beautiful Tulbagh.
The theme for camp was ‘Choice’ and inculcating an understanding that making the right choices comes with responsibility and ownership.
Each morning at camp started with some physical stretches, followed by team-building activities in nature next to the river and on the final morning we took a reflection hike to the fast-flowing waterfall.
SEF scholars worked in teams to solve problems, overcame challenges and fears on the obstacle courses and in crossing the waterfall were required to lean on and rely on one another for support and encouragement. A proud moment on the last evening when the scholars entertained us with their talents around the bonfire.
New friendships were formed, memories were made, new experiences and opportunities were taken and indeed, important CHOICES were made!
All-in-all, June 2022 was a highly successful Youth Month for the Spirit Education Foundation!
