People of all ages can participate in the 30-Hour Famine. You can choose to participate as a Camper or as an Individual Participant for the full Famine experience. If you are up for a challenge, you can also sign up as a 30-Hour Famine DIY Camp Leader where you will assemble your own team, recruit Campers and organise a DIY Camp based on the materials provided by World Vision!
Step up and organise your own DIY Camp! You will polish your leadership skills, make new friends, build team spirit as you prepare for the Camp and discover how meaningful advocacy can be when you do it as a team.
Select your preferred DIY Camp based on your location, sign up as a Camper and the Camp Leader will be in touch with you! You will gather with other Campers according to the date, time and venue of your selected DIY Camp to fast (for 30 or 8 hours) and experience the challenges faced by vulnerable communities through a variety of specially curated activities!
