One more thing…
for young changemakers
(are a rare thing!)
But how enjoy one’s HOLIDAYS?
Summer camps are tricky.
Which changemaker wants to spend time who don’t share one’s passion for people and planet? Sports camps are not satisfying.
And what about staying in touch with newly won friends?
For young changemakers there’s a new kind of exciting camps, where they meet their kind AND real heroInes, learn about global issues, methods, explore nature in adventurous excursions, vegan cuisine, yoga, bodywork and bushcraft, unfold talents and potentials, develop campaigns and stay in touch after camp via internet and projects.
is a unique and inspiring summer leadership program for youth 12-17 who want to make a difference in the world. A week-long sleep-away program in a beautiful camp location, YEA is designed to be a fun and transformative experience that builds life-long friendships between youth with similar interests in bettering their community and society.
