New competition launched for youth camp study programme
12.03.2015

PRESS RELEASE

The Integration and Migration Foundation awaits applications to add to the youth camp programme for young people whose first language is not Estonian.

This summer will again see camps held for young people aged 7-18 who live in Estonia but do not speak Estonian so as to introduce to them the country itself, its culture, its history and its language. Those attending the camps will have the opportunity to talk to Estonians their own age, take part in age-appropriate activities with them and learn more about Estonia on excursions. The competition will give the organisers of the camps the opportunity to offer the attendees a varied programme in Estonian.

“We want the programme to offer the campers as many possibilities for non-formal learning and self-fulfilment as possible,” explained Jana Tondi, an area manager with the Integration Foundation’s Development Centre. “In previous years we’ve arranged hiking trips, orienteering games and quizzes. Cooperation with sister schools, excursions to historical sites and visits to open air performances are important and popular parts of the programme, too.”

The budget for the competition is 45,221 euros. The deadline for the submission of projects is 07 April 2015.

There will be an information day for anyone interested on 30 March at the Integration Foundation’s offices (Lõõtsa 2a, Tallinn) during which the conditions of the competition will be set out. Please register your attendance by e-mailing marina.fanfora@meis.ee.

More information about the terms and conditions of the competition and the required documentation can be found on the website of the Integration and Migration Foundation.

Organisation of the competition is being supported from the state budget via the Ministry of Culture.
