Project

Language School “B-Lingua” runs children’s activity camps this summer with the aim to give children possibility of active and meaningful summer vacations and some practice of English. Camps take place in Remniku Holiday Centre located 190 km from Tallinn in Ida-Viru County, North-East of Estonia, on the northern shore of Lake Peipus. The wonderful nature, pine forest, proximity to the lake (about 100m) and good facilities – all this makes Remniku the ideal place for leisure. Such location helps to bring children from cities closer to unspoiled nature. 

The main purpose of all camps is to discover different countries and cultures and practice English. In the last shift, called “EN-JOY CAMP” it will be done through artistic expression which could be dancing or singing, national style party, music or art of any kind, performing arts and crafts - anything volunteers are good at. The idea is to have intercultural diversity to be presented to kids. We want to give children opportunity to discover culture differences, improve their English language, have fun and enjoy the time with volunteers. For this camp invites international volunteers to join it as animators and providers of English language practice. Children are mainly Russian-speaking from minority community of Estonia. About 40 children aged 8-13 are expected in every shift. 

 

Work

Each day of the camp will have a program completed by local coordinators and volunteers will be helping to realize it. The main activities will be intercultural. It will be done through art, crafts, games, acting and dancing, sport and language speaking clubs. Volunteers would lead workshops during 6 days of the camp, which may culminate with small performance on the last day of the project. You do not have to be professional, the most important that it is enjoyable and fun! After placement volunteers will be contacted by organizers to get involved and guided in the preparation of the program before arrival to Estonia.
