Please be aware that you will be dealing with the kids/teens through the given and intensive program all day long. You will spend most of your time with the teens in the camp area with a limited private life. Thus contact with the locals is very very limited; however, you will have contact with the working staff and the people from other groups in Afacan Youth House. Volunteers may have fun together only after the kids/teens go to the bed and the team cover the late, daily staff meeting in the camp. Leaving the camp area is not allowed due to unexpected emergency cases. Teamwork is very essential for this camp. Thus any volunteer who disagrees with the camp rules and team spirit are asked to leave. Smoking and drinking alcohol is not allowed during the camp at the campsite in front of the kids/teens. Please be aware of these rules before applying.
