Still thinking of spending the holiday with parents or friends? But something tells you that you deserve this summer to be unic. So, let it be.

Do you know where you can meet some guy from Manchester in whose place you can stay at when you get visa for UK? Or Japanese guy who you would contact when you decide to travel to eastern countries? Let me tell you! On international volunteer camps. International volunteer camps are places for gathering enthusiastic volunteers from all over the world, who during period of 2 weeks give their contribution to some of the local community. You get to choose whether you will participate in organising local music festival or sports tournament, tidying up beaches, renovating country school or helping newborn turtles find their way to the ocean. There are more then 2000 various camps, and you get to choose where to participate.

Unlike touristic travels, camps will help you to upgrade your skills and knowledge, with every contact with locals you get to learn about culture differences and make new friends from all over the world who will volunteer together with you. Although you are on the camp that doesn’t need you are going to sleep in a tent (you can if you want) or that you are going to cook your lunch on the bonfire. Accommodation and food depend upon the camp organisators, so they can vary upon the camp you choose.

Young researchers are inviting you to join in international volunteer camps, you can do it if you click on the website
