Meet YMCA Kyiv Peace Camp!

We are an enthusiastic team of volunteers who want to share knowledge and positive experiences at the YMCA Kyiv summer camp for children.

Why are we doing that?

Due to the military conflict in Eastern part of Ukraine there is a difficult social situation in the country nowadays. Lots of kids are affected. It is important to work together with young people in order to build a new active and positive thinking generation. So we want to create opportunities for children to enjoy themselves through developing their creativity, outdoor activities, building a platform that would not only make children happy and develop their physical strength, but also promote their integration and make them feel a part of the local community.

What do we offer?

We are going to invite 70 kids from 10 till 16 y.o. (including IDP’s from eastern part of Ukraine, who have been forced or obliged to flee or to leave their homes). Moreover, we want to help them to socialize in new communities and renew their trust to people around by creating a safe space, opening creativity and leadership potential of the children.

Our main aim is to improve mutual understanding and trust between young people coming from different backgrounds. Activities of the camp include peacebuilding education, sport, scouting, art & crafts, drama, dancing workshops and trainings on leadership, communication, children’s rights, environmental protection.
