We monitor the interruptions of the camp in the summer of 2022, and the Minister of Youth and Culture has held with us only one meeting since his appointment (the National Camp University) – Today 24

The National Camping University expressed its concern about the imbalances that occurred in the summer of 2022, revealing its intention to publish a white paper on camping in Morocco, which will track all the imbalances known by the national fair, a publication that will work to evaluate how the Ministry of Youth, Culture and Communication arranged the national camping program, revealing its involvement in the petitions in defense of the achievements of Moroccan children in the field of camping, and will announce its nature in the next days.

The university revealed that its marginalization emptied the content of the collaboration agreement signed by the ministry with it, after it had always been a tool for cooperation to overcome the difficulties of the camping process. In this context, the university surprised by not holding meetings with the Minister of Youth and Culture, except once, since his appointment, which did not allow him to deliver the voice and perception of the university to address the problems raised in the required manner.

In a statement, of which “Today 24” obtained a copy, the university was surprised by the appearance of several negative aspects during this year’s camping season, which, according to the evaluation of the National Camping University, were the main reason behind the failure to achieve desired goals.

In this regard, the National University of Camping denounced its marginalization by the Ministry of Youth, based on not taking into account its proposals within the joint commission, and moving it away from monitoring the data of the camps, accusing the Willy ministry of hoarding control of the camps. gate, as the university said it did not understand the logic of closing and opening the Camping gate, especially in light of its lack of involvement in current affairs, criticizing the ministry for not providing the university with data and statistics that would help identify problems and find solutions.

The university also announced the deprivation of the associations under its banner from benefiting from the national camp program, without a clear and explicit legal justification, noting, in this context, the injustice suffered by many national associations, and the various regional and local branches, during the resettlement process and distribution to the camp centers.

And the university itself criticized the chaos that accompanied the graft system in management and achievement, which was often mishandled, affecting the child’s right to adequate and balanced nutrition within the camp.

In its statement, the university monitored what it described as the absence of any guardian sector effort over the previous two years to maintain the camp centers, knowing that their closure for two years, due to Corona, could have been used to restore and rehabilitate these centers, and make them capable of housing the greatest number of Moroccan children, in good conditions.

The university said, through its evaluation, that the closure of many camp centers for various reasons negatively affected the overall utilization rates and the participation of associations, which decreased by 60 percent, especially with the custodial sector that continues to prevent private camps, which were relatively covering the lack of spaces.

The university student highlighted the apparent confusion in the general direction of the national camping fair since the beginning of the fair, since improvisation and unilateralism prevailed in decision-making in all aspects of managing the camping stages, in addition to the lack of integration of all the open centers at the door, and lack of respect for the criteria to benefit from the national camping offer.

In this context, announcing the withdrawal of the admission licenses of some of the beneficiary associations, without justification or legal basis, despite fulfilling the required conditions of participation.
