Walking into Camp Sababa was walking into unfamiliar territory. Not having much experience with working with children with special needs I didn’t know what I was going to be confronted with. Yet with all that aside, stepping out of that camp was something heart warming and rewarding. Having to look after a child that was almost completely non-verbal definitely had it strains, but the feeling and connection you make when making him smile and happy and just knowing he genuinely wanted to be there was something else. I can only speak highly of camp sababa – from the way it runs to the ongoing support, and I hope that all year 12 graduates will have the same experience as I did.
