Camp Sky is a weeklong Peace Corps Malawi MSCE (Malawi School Certificate Exam) prep course created to address the educational disparity faced by those exceptional students who must learn with a severe lack of resources in Community Day Secondary Schools (CDSS). We aim to increase the rate of passing the MSCE for our student participants as well as create a positive environment for learning in the classroom. Classes are taught by Peace Corps Volunteers (PCV) and introduce an intensive week of preparation, motivation, test taking skills, one on one assistance and interactive teaching methods to ensure students come out feeling confident in their ability to be successful learners. Camp Sky further works to provide pathways in career development post MSCE. Secondly, Camp Sky includes a component referred to as Teach Sky, which focuses on the improvement of teaching strategies and assessment techniques for teachers who work at the CDSS level. Camp Sky finds contribution from local business owners, schools, and community leaders to help ensure the success of this camp. Through their contributions and the assistance of PCVs, the camp will foster a long-term impact of inspiration in order to prepare motivated Malawian students and teachers academically, socially, and creatively.
