Call for “Empowering Summer Camp Youth Leaders” Program @ Leusden, The Netherlands
Oct 19 – Oct 23 all-day

Empowering Summer Camp for Youth Leaders is postponed to October!

Empowering Summer Camp Youth Leaders (ESYL for short) is a short training course, hosted by YMCA Netherlands, to strengthen the YMCA summer camp work in Europe. The training course takes place from 19th till 23th of October, and is located on one of the national camp sites of YMCA Netherlands in Leusden, in the middle of The Netherlands.

There are 2 goals for the training: First, to strengthen the YMCA summer camp work in Europe by sharing knowledge with each other, learning new ideas, methods and games. The second goal is to see if this can be used to improve the YMCA standards for summer camps. This due to fact that  some of the countries who are involved in this project have been organizing summer camps for quite a long time, and others have just (re)started with summer camps. All YMCA summer camps should offer similar quality to it’s beneficiaries.

The training course is for volunteers and/or youth workers who organize summer camps, or want to learn how to organize summer camps. The age of the participants should be between 17 and 30. The call is open for all youth who is enthusiastic about camping. Have in mind that it is a camp setting, meaning that sleeping is in tents, so you have to bring your own sleeping bag.

There are 4+1 places available for Macedonians (in total 5 places). The 1 place is for the leader who will need to arrive at the camp site on 19th May. Other 4 places are considered for participants, and they arrive on the 20th May.
