It will require creativity and enthusiasm: for 2 hours in the afternoons volunteers will help in a children summer camp, which is organized for local primary school kids (approximately 30 children, 4-14-years-olds). Volunteers will organize various activities for them including the sportsday and an international day for the children as well as they will help in the preparation of the closing ceremony.
