Beehive of friendship
Description: For the 16th time the NGO "Košnica" is organizing the camp "Beehive of friendship" for orphans and children from socially disadvantaged households with support from motivated volunteers. Participating children are coming from all over the region. During the time spent in the camp they work on their social skills and self-esteem through sports, ecology and creative activities and workshops.
Type of Work: The volunteers will help building up the camp. They will clean and prepare the beach, the camp site and the facilities. They will set up the stage, tents, sports equipment etc. Also, volunteers will take part in camp realization. During the children's stay, they will participate in the activities, help preparing and serving meals and take care of the camp hygiene. At the end, the volunteers will help taking the camp down.
Accommodation: The volunteers will sleep in tents. Please bring your own sleeping bag and a mat (and a tent, if possible)! Showers and toilets are provided on the camp site. Meals are organized in the camp and can be adjusted to suit specific needs.
Language: English (as you will be working with kids, knowing Serbian is an asset)
Requirements: Volunteers should like working with children and have some experience in that way. Animation skills are really helpful but they are not obligatory. Be prepared to work outdoors while building the camp. That means you should bring practical clothes and footwear, sunscreen, bathing suit...
Approximate Location: The camp will be take place in the Nature park "Begečka jama". You can take a 10-minute-walk to the Danube river and a lake is close by. The closest village is called Begeč.

If you apply through a partner organisation you will pay the fee on arrival at the project; direct to the hosting SCI branch or through different payment platforms.
