Info about the Camp "I Believe"

Camp "I Believe" will be held in the Sumska Oblast at a Secondary School. The camp will be conducted from 25 August to 28 August. Forty students aged 13-17 will attend. This summer camp aims to empower students; the goal is to create positive self-image and encourage tolerance when faced with difference. For four days students will be provided individual attention and small group instruction in order to examine leadership, gender roles, diversity, and environmental problems. The camp curriculum also includes a discussion of important leaders and their beliefs. Using National Public Radio's program "This I Believe," students will focus on issues that are important to them by creating small statements with help of the camp counselors. Camp "I Believe" will conclude with a reading of the students' statements to be submitted to NPR for consideration. In addition, students will have the opportunity to learn about healthy lifestyles by participating in sports events and cooking together throughout the week. The camp will be conducted entirely in English to aid student proficiency.

The Secondary School is providing classroom space, use of the stadium, cooking equipment and translation. However, Camp "I Believe" will need materials, food, t-shirts, and equipment from other sponsors.
