You will share the responsibilities of the leading team to take care a group of kids from the beginning till the end of the camp; including the trips outside of the camp as well as all kind of activities during the camp. Please note that you will be dealing with the kids through the given and intensive program all day long. You will spend most of your time with the kids in the camp area with a limited private life. Thus contact with the locals is very limited; however, you will have contact with the working people in the campsite. Volunteers may have fun together only after the kids go to the bed and the team cover the late, daily staff meeting in the camp. Leaving the camp area is not allowed due to unexpected emergency cases. Teamwork is very essential for this camp.
