Description: This camp for Russian kids takes place every year on the bank of the lake Shap in the middle of the pine forest. Foreign volunteers work together with Russian volunteers as counselors and organize cultural and educational activities for the participants (local school kids – aged 8-15).

Type of Work:

  • Making intercultural and educational workshops (about the volunteers’ native countries, ecology, water resources, human rights, antiracism, etc);

  • Teaching foreign languages to the participants (in the form of playing games, singing songs or improve their language skills through discussions);

  • Organizing some sport activities, strategic games, shows and handycrafts. The work is done 8 hours a day, one day off per week, for the days off sightseeing excursions are planned.

Study Theme: Volunteers get knowledge and skills of organizing educational and intercultural activities for kids, teaching languages; basic knowledge of the Russian language and the Russian culture, will get to know Russian people and Russian hospitality. As the workcamp is located in Chuvashia – a small local ethnicity to the east from Moscow – the volunteers will get the chance to learn the culture of this local ethnicity, its’ history and difference from the Russian Culture.

Accommodation: Volunteers will live in the camp for children “Shap”, in wooden houses; counselors live together in male, female, mixed rooms. Showers are available all the time.

Language: The working language of the project is English, but we welcome all other languages: French, German, Spanish, Italian, Esperanto etc. Knowledge of Russian would be useful.

Requirements: The volunteers are expected to have some experience of working with kids and organizing activities, intercultural experience is very welcome. We especially welcome those who can swim as this season is normally hot here and we swim a lot with the kids.

Accomodation and food is provided by the hosting organization.
