Default Mongolia Summer Camp 2011 volunteers



Mongolia Summer Camp is an educational fun camp run by international youths volunteers for street children in Mongolia to teach them basic english, music and art as well as values through games and activities. The camp is situated in the rural green pasture in traditional mongolian tents and provides both volunteers and children a chance to be close to nature and enjoy nature’s beauty through activities like hiking and horse-riding.

The project seeks to enable youth volunteers to give off whatever little time and resources that they have to serve the less fortunate in the society by running a simple camp. It also hopes to provide a chance for informal education for street children to equip them with a basic foundation to continue further in life. To inspire them to hope, to fight and never give up. The project aspires to bridge together the hearts of people from miles apart to forge a common dream of a better future.

The project welcomes all volunteers from all walks of life and nationalities. To apply to Mongolia Summer Camp 2 (21st Jul-31st Jul), please kindly download and fill out our application form and email it to us at: [email protected]
