This project has been organized with Green Wood (GW) since 2007. GW is a local NPO established in 2093 to promote the education of kids by experience in nature. They run a school for students from cities, first aid classes, kids exchange projects in northeast Asia and various types of children’s nature experience camps for community planning. They have many staff members and also short term volunteers (for several days), but need more long term volunteers to run the summer program stably.

Work: Volunteers will assist to run various types of 3-10 days of kids summer camps such as playing with kids, managing safety, food, and other stuff, helping kids to cook, preparing and cleaning the places. We will be separated into each program to work with local staff, so don’t expect to be there as a group.

Accomodation and food: Tents in the camping site.
