United in art and sport (Free your mind, body and soul)
Description: Camp will enable children who spend their summer in town to participate in creative (art and sport) workshops, to learn about new cultures, develop their communication skills and to experience art and sport as a way to express themselves that is common to all cultures, doesn`t know about boundaries and gathers us in joy of creation.
Type of Work: Volunteers will create and manage art and sport workshops for children (7 to 13 years old). Workshops can be about learning how to dance (especially traditional dances from your country), painting, music, acrobatic skills, various diy and handcraft workshops. We would love various, interesting workshops that encourage children to be creative and enjoy international atmosphere; idea is that volunteers also represent their countries through workshops (either by choice of motives, representing their country`s folklore, teach songs/dance etc.). Volunteers will work max 6 hours a day with two days free for trip and party/leisure.
Study Theme: There will be several activities intended for volunteers only; folklore workshop, presentation of local organisaton Volunteer's centre "Link”, hiking (exploring a nearby mountain, it`s flora, fauna and local gastronomy), workshop of making a delicious vegan meal and short course of Croatian language (Learning through games/songs, introducing interesting facts about Croatian daily life. NOTE: this workshop is facultative, only for those who are interested)
Accommodation: In tents, camp site is situated in a city centre park complex. Sleeping bags are needed. Toilet and shower are in a building situated in park complex (2 mins from tents). In case of bad weather volunteers will sleep in dormitory. Food will be prepared by volunteers organised in kitchen teams. They will have daily budget and buy food by themselves, according to needs of every member of a group.
Requirements: Please write us a short and simple letter of motivation in which you will describe your previous experience in volunteering and working with children, as well as your hobbies, skills or education in the field of art, sport or anything else that you want to contribute with.
