Esports is set to be one of the many activities to be held at the 2022 edition of the Impact Youth Foundation‘s (IYF) Summer Sports Leadership Camp to be held at the Al-Rayan International School from June 20 to July 21.

This is due to the partnership between Esports African News (EAN) and the IYF, as the media house continues its push to develop the emerging sport by introducing it to the nation’s younger generation.


This can be seen with the ongoing EAN Highschool Esports Tour which kicked off at the St Martins SHS back in May and the partnership with the IYF is just further proof of the organisation’s dedication to youth development.

Alongside esports, the 5-week camp will see boys and girls ages 8 to 19 participate in numerous activities including football and basketball skills training, leadership and character-building, community service, basketball and football games, and academic and career guidance.

Registration for the Summer Sports Leadership Camp is currently ongoing and will cost GH₵1,500 for the full 5 weeks or GH₵500 for just a week.

Robert Gyan has been a regular of Impact Youth Foundation Camps participating in camps from 2012 to 2016 and he spoke about his experiences stating that “the term student-athlete was introduced to me at IMYouth Basketball Camp, and it changed everything for me.”

The IYF is a sport for development non-profit organization that through partnerships and collaborations with local and private schools, government institutions and agencies, governing bodies, and cooperative entities, develops programs and projects that meet the human, economic, and social development needs of children and youth across the country.
