Hold up! We are not remixing 50 Cent’s song neither are we about to drop a new trap music album. These are tips on those million dollar questions that you are having about our upcoming 4th Annual Youth Camp dubbed #GetUpSpeakOut. Sit back, relax, grab some popcorn and let’s roll!!! .

  1. What Is this camp  about? The camp is an opportunity for you to be inspired and mentored by individuals on top of UG. It aims at helping young people to acquire the charisma and ability to properly articulate themselves regarding issues that affect them in respect to life skills development, behavior change, body changes and sexual reproductive health and rights. The camp therefore, will give them an opportunity to amplify their voices to be able to gain the confidence to live their dreams.
  2. What will be going down? Dance theater competitions, sexual reproductive health and rights workshops, entrepreneurial and life planning skills, edutainment, games and sports, inspirational talks oh mehn. Watch what went down at last year’s “Life in my shoes” camp. It’s certain to give you a glimpse of what’s in store. 
  3. Wait a sec; what’s this dance theatre competitions? We use the arts, specifically, music, dance and drama to exhibit and deconstruct major themes depicting SRHR challenges faced by young people in lives. We dance, act and learn some.
  4. How long will the camp run? The date is May 7th- 13th. If you have any plans during that time, drop them already because the FOMO is riyo!!!
  5. Is it open to all youth? Yes it is, if you are between the ages of 12-24 years. It doesn’t matter whether you are in or out of school, Ugandan or not. We love us some diversity.
  6. Why should i pay my dime to participate? This will get you exclusive access to some of the most successful and motivational speakers on the Ugandan scene right now, musicians from your fav radio show, a fresh T-shirt, an opportunity to interact with over 500 young people from across East Africa. How’s that for networking. Talk about balling on a budget *side eye emoji*
  7. Are we going to be there during day and go back home in the evening? No fam. It is residential. We’ll be catching this chill at Hana International School.
  8. Ooh, so does that mean I have to carry a mattress, suitcase and all scholastic materials? Friend, you are not reporting for a school term. Just carry beddings (blanket and bed sheets), and toiletries ( toothbrush, sandals, open shoes, vaseline Plus those little things you might need). We will provide a mattress for you.
  9. Can I come in school uniform? If you’re down with repping your school, we’re cool. However, we’d like you to mingle with the other participants without feeling like you belong to a tribe *winking eye emoji*. If you’re fashion forward, pack that trendy wardrobe. If sports is more your thing, carry your sports attire and swimsuit. Remember to keep your wardrobe at the camp decent.
  10. Is it okay if I come with my friends? Hell yes! Remember that phrase, “Come one, come all”? It totally applies here. Tell your friends to tell their friends to tell their friends. Like we said, the FOMO is real.
  11. Does that mean even my school can participate? Certainly! There are loads of activities that require participation as a school. Case in point, the dance theatre competition. A school can mobilize as many participants as they’re able to. The more, the merrier. In fact, if you come with your school mates, it’s better to have fun that way.
  12. Will we have classroom-like sessions? Learning does not necessarily take place in the classroom alone. We’ll be in door, out door, on stage, at the basketball court, at the pool, in the community, you name it.
  13. Is it true that at the camp, there are goodies to be won? Yes! And this time round, we have got very many partners who will give out goodies like Sunlight, Vaseline, Blue Band, Aquasafe beauty products and many more.
  14. I like games, what games shall we be having? Swimming, Football, Basketball, Netball, morning acrobatics, kwepena, racing, board games etc. The camp is the thing!

Come ready to be edutained by our cultural icons for example Geosteady, Navio, Nutty Neithan, Allan Toniks, Martha Smallz, Mun*G, Naava Grey and so many many more!
