We are an ngo that works with youth information, mobility and social entrepreneurship. In the field of mobility we have different programmes for young people, international volunteers programmes, youth exchanges and trainings, as well as international youth and children camps. For implementing the international summer camps we need help to build the camp and later help to do different art and sport activities with youth and children. Our camp is situated in the small place in our region, just 2 minutes walking from the sea. It is an space that offers tranquility and beautiful nature. Everything in the camp is done by the association members and volunteers, and accommodation is provided in the tents. We are cooking daily, so we offer to all our volunteers food, drinks, snacks as much as they want. Our main intention for the future is to upgrade the camp with innovative ideas, ecological approach and sustainability so we would like to invite open minded volunteers to help us in that path. Important to know that we host volunteers from May till September, and if outside of this months than the work is in our ngo and in the city, not in the camp. As we work with young people and the space we share is with young people we accept volunteers the same age, which means the volunteers aged 18 - 35 and only individuals, we don't accept couples or families. We ask from volunteers to be able to work in the team but also alone, to have some experience already with organizing activities for young people, to be able to live and volunteer in the nature, to be open minded, friendly and motivated to do activies with us. For sure the plus is if the volunteer has some building / gardening skills too. We are a small ngo, and therefore we are like a family. We would give everythign we can to feel you welcome and part of our family.

Travellers will learn a lot about the teamwork, working with young people and children coming from different nationalities and backgrounds, time menagement, construction and nature. Our camp is next to the sea so during the free time travellers will have a chance to go to the beach, to simple enjoy in the peace, go hiking, kayaking, walking...
In other periods of the year, apart from the summer travellers can learn a lot of our croatian culture, how an ngo works, how to manage projects for young people, but also how to live in a small place and simple enjoy in every day.
They will have the chance to explore the surroundings and visit cultural places with us.
The activities we need the help with in the summer camp during the summer are:
- maintaining the camp area (cutting the grass, cleaning, putting the tents, doing different constructions for the facilities of the camp: wooden houses/storage/kitchen place, painting, making fence...)
- activities with children and young people (animation, doing different workshops, designing and making furniture out of pallets, sport activites, water activities and games, organizing evening activities...)
- cooking (preparing the meals together with the groups in the camp)
- trail and walking tours (accompanying groups to the field trips..).
All creative ideas are more than welcome. :)
The activities we need help in the city (when we don't have the summer camp):
- local activities for young people (language workshops, creative workshops, cinema nights,...)
- local volunteer actions (small actions for the benefit of the local community)
- helping with social media promotion
- graphic design and content promotion
In the summer camp we provide the volunteers accommodation in the tents. Each volunteer has his/her own tent with matress, sleeping bag, blanket. Our tents are comfortable, waterproof and safe.
Apart from the summer time, while we are in the town we provide accommodation in the shared flat with other volunteers close to our ngo office.
There are great local cultural sights to explore as well as a high number of trail / hiking paths, hidden beaches. We offer our travellers free museum tickets and transport from and to our place of hosting. As hosts we give the best we can for the travellers to feel welcome and part of our team so we often organize different mutual activities and travellings through our region.
