Hoping that each and everyone of you are well…Things here in Greece are as good as always, we now have two teams arriving for our Spring program in the county schools, a foundation that many of you have been apart of .

Summer Camp 2009

Friday 12th June will be the last day of school here in Gazi. Monday 15th is the start of our very successful Summer Camp. This year we will have five teams, the last team ending in August. As you can imagine and from the numbers of children taking part over the last two years we are expecting a record number of students to sign up this year ( 2007 - 230 students, 2008 - 320 students).

The success of this camp has now reached the ears of many small villages in the County and students will travel up to 30 km to join our Volunteers. No experience is necessary just the ability to speak English and a love of children. The summer camp is very informal, teaching the students English using games, songs, theatre and outdoor activities. It takes place in a primary school which has class-rooms, blackboards, a large play ground, T.V and C.D players. There is also access to balls of all kinds, hoops and jump ropes.

What are you waiting for?

We need YOU!!!! With the larger number of students we need more Volunteers. It would be a real shame to have to turn students away… Please join us here in Crete to continue expanding the chain and give the students a Summer to remember….
