Voluntary work can always be a good idea, especially if it is not in the city the person is born in.
Due to this fact, we as EVS Volunteers in one primary school in Krakow, had a great experience doing this extra-voluntary work on the Language camp in Siedlikow, Ostrzeszow. Together with two Ex- volunteers, Paul and Ildefonso, we had a chance to be together with 35 teenagers up to 15 years old, and 3 amazing teachers. The whole event started on Friday evening, and finished on Sunday afternoon. At first, every volunteer had a team of approximately 8 teenagers, and during the weekend we had a lot of different interactive competition games. At the end the teachers were collecting the points of every game and there was a price for every person
During the second day of the weekend, we went for a short hike in the woods close to the school. There we made barbecue, had a lot of fun and the teams were making videos for a very popular Christmas song. And the last day, but not the least, we went for a short excursion to one very beautiful city, especially for Christmas time, Wroclaw.
To sum up in few words: a lot of happy faces in one place, good vibes, positive energy, great atmosphere, friendly teenagers, and teachers providing with pleasure everything a volunteers and teenagers need.
Happiness is doing small things, with great love.
