We have been organizing international language camps “Language Plus” for five years. In our camps Russian and foreign volunteers collaborate to organize cultural, educational and sport activities for local children and children from nearby regions aged 7-17. Our mission is to provide every child with a range of opportunities which help him/her to grow and improve themselves as a person.
• Teaching foreign languages to the participants (in the form of playing games, singing songs or improving their language skills through discussions). These include the volunteer’s native language, and English if their English level is B2 or higher and they feel comfortable with teaching two languages. • Giving a presentation of the volunteer’s native country with the aim to teach the children its history, culture, customs and traditions. • Organizing and together with children taking part in some sport activities, strategic games, shows and handcrafts. • Making intercultural and educational workshops of different kinds: handcrafts, sports, national games, music, dance, photography, etc.
Volunteers will stay in the resort center “Chaika” in a brick house. The counselors live together in male and female rooms for 2-4 people. Showers are available all the time (but not in the rooms). No sleeping bags are needed, food is provided in the local camp cafeteria (5 meals a day). There’s nearly no Internet on the territory of the camp, so if you need any video, photos, or any other downloadable material you should probably download it before coming to the camp. There will a black-and-white printer available in the camp.
Free time for volunteers is flexible. The volunteers are mostly busy in the morning having lessons. There’s fixed rest hour from 1 to 3 pm. The rest of the day is flexible and free hours depend on the day’s schedule and other volunteers’ schedule. You have to keep in mind that the kids will always be around, asking questions and just trying to communicate or play with you. During the camp you will have an opportunity to visit Cheboksary (the capital of the Chuvash Repulbic)
