Social Work Induction Camp 2016

SASW will be holding the 5th biennial Social Work Induction Camp (SWIC) for social work students on 23 to 24 July 2016. The theme of SWIC 2016 will be aligned to that of Social Workers’ Day 2016, which was “Honouring Diversity”. As such, SWIC 2016 will be titled: CAMP DNA (Different ‘N’ Alike). CAMP DNA retains SWIC’s objectives of contributing to a stronger formation of professional identity for social work students, creating networks and exchanges between students from different schools of social work, and be connected to the wider social work fraternity so as to form a lasting bond with SASW as members and/or volunteers.

A team of 15 social workers and 2 graduating social work students are currently volunteering their time and talents into the planning of CAMP DNA, which targets 60 social work student participants.
