Summer for success
During the project, 10 volunteers from various European countries carry out summer camps that is open to local and refugee children. Children can spend time together at the summer camp doing traditional summer camp activities such as playing, singing, swimming and dancing.
The camp is easy and simple way to bring together children from different cultures. Through games and activities it is easier for the children to get to know each other. These shared experiences often lead to long-lasting friendships.
The volunteers will plan and lead different kinds of workshops and activities for the summer camps and together with the staff of Villa Elba ensure a safe atmosphere for the campers. This means that volunteers are also expected to be responsible and reliable adults for the campers, follow safety rules and be mentally present during working days. It means for an example that you cannot use your mobile phone during working hours, you focus is on the children all time.
Accommodation and food:
Accommodation is organised in Youth Centre Villa Elba in beautiful summer house Villa Marina by the sea. It is a simple house with no modern comforts: there are not indoor toilets, no indoor shower or running water in the house. Water is available from the well outside and there is an outdoor shower and sauna tent. House is heated with the help of the fireplace and electric radiators. Therefore, it requires patience and flexibility, as volunteers must adapt to a modest living environment. On the other hand, the Villa has a beautiful environment and offers participants a unique chance to try out traditional Finnish summer cottage lifestyle.
