Summer Camp - Africa Camp

Africa Camp is dedicated to nurturing cultural identity and leadership  in children of African descent. Our program blends fun and education to  create a memorable and enriching experience for every camper.

Origins of Africa Camp

How did Africa Camp start?

Africa Camp began in 2010 with a humble start of just 12 campers. Founded by the Bring on the Sunshine (BOTS) community, the camp was created to address the need for cultural education and community building among children of African heritage. Over the years, the camp has grown significantly, now welcoming over 60 children annually. This growth is a testament to the camp's impact and the strong community support that continues to drive its mission forward.
