The theme of the camp is nature and youth on the countryside and the volunteers will get many opportunities for intercultural encounters. Volunteers will take part in planning and organising nature school programmes for children and youngsters. Volunteers should be prepared to present their own country and its culture to local children and youth while visiting local school and youth houses. The volunteers will get a chance to get to know the local nature through renovating and tidying surroundings of Luontokapinetti, nature and environment education centre (https://www.poytya.fi/vapaa-aika-ja-matkailu/luontokapinetti/) and taking part in an activity day for protecting a local lake famous for its birds.
