Because of camp, I am now a qualified primary school teacher.

From lesson planning, to time management, leading dance sessions to dealing with difficult situations; camp allowed me to develop invaluable skills that I use every day as a teacher.

I am now heading to Dubai to become a teacher in an International school and couldn't be more thankful for the opportunity that camp gave me.
