GENÇTUR ‘s work camps aim to create possibilities for young volunteers to meet young people from other cultures, learn about traditional way of life in Turkey, to improve their foreign languages, and to discover traditional Turkish hospitality and delicious Turkish food. Most of the camps are organized in small town or villages where are not touristy areas and where you can find the real side of the daily life.
