YORUBA (VIRTUAL) SUMMER CAMP

Yorùbá Summer Camp is an event targeted at children for the sole purpose of connecting them with the Yorùbá Heritage.

As you may know, children of this generation are not enjoying what the indigenous Yorùbá Childhood used to be. It is a shame to see that most of them cannot even speak nor write their mother tongue🤦‍♀️.

This annual event was launched in our bid to preserve the Yoruba language and culture, and to catch them young! And indeed, we have been able to achieve this by being consistent. 

The sessions at the camp focus on so many areas and aspects of the Yoruba Culture. We  are making it very EASY for children to learn Yoruba Langauge and catch fun even as they stay connected with their roots. The curriculum is developed and taught by certified Yorùbá Language professionals who are not just native speakers. It covers useful conversational phrases, common expressions, cultural lessons and every important topics to learn for every Yoruba child.

The First Edition of the Summer Camp took place physically in Lagos Nigeria (Freedom Park) in 2019, where we had over 24 children in attendance.

Due to the restrictions caused by COVID-19 in 2020, the second edition took place virtually with a turn out of over 60 children. Most of the participants of 2020 have since continued with us at the Yoruba Club every Saturday till date.

It was a fantastic school for the children. The children enjoyed the daily home work and the test at the end of the camp. I listened in a few times and I loved the interactive sessions between the children and the teacher.

My child enjoyed the sessions and spoke very highly of his tutor. He now attempts to speak Yoruba at every given opportunity and he is keen to continue / extend his knowledge of the language.

The camp was very engaging and kept the children's interest. The kids wished it lasted more than two weeks.

It was very well organized and had engaging activities. Our son loved the songs using it as an effective way to learn. We would like to expand his learning beyond the camp to start from the basics about the yoruba alphabet.
