Kuumba Kamp Participants
Kuumba Kamp is a component of the African American Appalachian Arts, Inc., Kuumba Watoto Urban Youth Institute. KUUMBA WATOTO means “Creative Children” (from the language of Ki- Swahili). Kuumba Kamp offers intensive workshops that focus on the development of performance skills, knowledge of African and African American culture, self discipline, proper nutrition and individual goal setting that are reinforced during the camp. Our purpose is to provide a supportive environment that facilitates the development of the individual physically and emotionally. Kuumba Kamp is offered to school aged youth who are 5 to 18 years old.
