What is a camp?
A Camp is usually a long vacation where recreational and educational activities take place. It is also usually intended for a very young audience, usually between 8 to 25 years old.
Most of the camps are dedicated to sport. There are multi-sport Camp where you can practice multiple disciplines, or Camp dedicated to a single sport.
Camps programs are the holiday chosen by most children who want to live an experience away from home, without crossing national borders or going abroad.
There are camps organized inside colonies, large dormitories or tourist villages, other associations choose instead to organize their activities in the hotel, both for the sake of convenience and safety for the participants.
A camp certainly has a lower cost than a study holiday abroad, sometimes is even free. Despite this, especially in recent years, many camps have included the study or teaching of a foreign language within their programs. It is a solution that parents really like and that does not dissatisfy the children, since it is stimulating and fun to study a language at a Camp (also see: Summer camp) rather than at school, with the awareness of dedicating the rest of the day to fun, as well as in the evening – thanks to evening entertainment inside the Camp.
There are many projects and various themes, one can work in the social field, with children, disabled people, needy people, humanitarianprojects, cultural andarchaeological projects, the organization of events, exhibitions and festivals, environmental protection projects or agriculture, or to projects of construction and maintenance of houses, public spaces and churches.
No special skills are required to take part, just know a little English and have a great desire to do, a spirit of sharing and collaboration. Travel expenses and a registration fee, which includes health insurance, depends on the organizations; in some cases, they are at the volunteer’s expense, in other cases the host association will offer food and lodging instead, usually in dormitories, gyms or tents.
