N.B: Delegates are expected to consult Moroccan embassies in their respective countries for any addition information/requirements that may be applicable. YALDA would however provide support letters to the embassy indicating delegate’s participation at the i-Boot Camp.
An average visitor to Morocco always want to visit over and over again. Apart from the experience of camel trekking in the desert and seeing amazing things the country has to offer, its weather also draws global tourists. Fondly called a country with a hot sun, Morocco’s weather could be regarded as one of the most pristine which is due largely to the country’s geographical location between Europe, Asia, and Africa. The i-Boot Camp is scheduled to take place between 24th – 28th October in Rabat when the weather would average 18OC. Delegates are advised to come along with sweatshirts as it could get cold at night.
YALDA will take care of breakfast, lunch, and snacks each day of the i-Boot Camp. You will be responsible for your dinner each night.
Make sure you have informed us about any special dietary needs in your application. Update us if this changes. We will do our best to accommodate you during the i-Boot Camp.
