Indigo Skate Camp - Durban

Indigo Skate Camp - Durban

The new project is a development of a programme that was started eight years ago by Dallas Oberholzer to provide rural communities with opportunities to learn English and Maths, to interact with more advantaged young people from the city and to develop life skills and confidence through skateboarding.

Indigo Skate Camp was the founding pilot project in a Zulu village in the Valley of 1 000 Hills. This rural facility grew from 2001 with contributions from more fortunate urban participants who attended youth camps at the facility. Today Indigo Skate Camp hosts a tourism ambassador programme employing 35 youths in the surrounding village.
