In this 3 day camp, we will take a virtual safari in Africa and learn about the many animals that can be seen there. Each day, we will begin with a check-in activity.

I have a Bachelor's degree in Psychology, with a specialisation in counselling. In the past, I have worked in primary and high schools offering individual & group counselling, life skills courses, and psychometric testing. I am currently working at a primary school as a learning support assistant. My interests lie in child development and mental health awareness. I have also always had a passion for wildlife and have done extensive research on all of my class topics.
I encourage the children to create one fact file per class. They may need time after class to complete this.
