Background Information:

With the summer holidays a lot of youth lack the daily routine of going to school. It is therefore important to create alternative activities throughout this period to further stimulate their interests and advance their education (academic and physical).


The Summer Camp: The camp took place in July and included a variety of activities such as workshops, various games, sports contests, field trips etc. More then 70 children attended from a wide variety of nationalities and enthnicities including Ukrainians, Roma, Afghans, Iraqi's, Hungarians and Syrians. A great thank you to all participants including a dedicated group of Peace-corps volunteers who helped make this years summer camp a tremendous success.
