Greenlandic Children wants Camp N to give the inhabitants a fantastic, creative, active, and interesting summer. The activities will take place Monday through Friday 12.00-18.00, and will fall into these categories: Music, Dance, Singing, Games, Sports, and Excursions. The volunteers will decide which activities to offer during the camp. You should expect long days, and it is expected that you will participate in all activities. On Saturdays, we will invite the entire population to a social event from 18.00-21.00. This could be a night of music and dancing, teaching each other to play an instrument, cooking food from your home country, movie night etc.

Sleeping facilities:
We expect you to stay in a shared bedroom with other volunteers of the same sex. You will stay at the local school where kitchen and bathroom facilities will also be available.

Food:
All food will have to be transported by ship. Therefore, you should be able to adapt to these local conditions or bring a small stock of goods yourself. It can be difficult to be vegetarian or vegan since many meals in Greenland are based on meat and fish.

Telephone coverage might be scarce, and the internet connection might be bad. We will make cooking and cleaning teams. The group is responsible for shopping, cooking, cleaning etc. which is also going to take up some of your time every day.

We will fly directly from Copenhagen to Nanortalik – the southernmost town of Greenland.

The travel will consist of a direct flight from Copenhagen to Narsarsuaq and from there a helicopter flight or boatride from Narsarsuaq to Nanortalik. We will know for sure in May.

The route from Narsarsuaq to Nanortalik is very scenic and you will get a front row seat to both stunning mountains and green valleys.

We have been doing work camps every summer since 2014. Greenlandic Children is cooperating with the local community in Nanortalik. Nanortalik is located on the island of Nanortalik at the mouth of the Tasermiut fjord. Nanortalik is the most southern town in Greenland but is still approx. 100 km away northwest from the most southern point, Cape Farewell. The town was founded as a trading post in 1797 but was moved to its current location in 1830. Nanortalik is the smallest of three towns in the Municipality of Kujalleq.

Fishing and catching have long been the main occupation in Nanortalik, but in recent years, occupations such as tourism and mining have grown, as Greenland's only gold mine can be found near Nanortalik. Per On 1 January 2022, there are 1,129 inhabitants in the city, of which 277 are 18 years of age or younger, corresponding to 24.5% of the population.

Greenlandic Children carries out social activities in Greenland and Denmark for Greenlandic children and young people in vulnerable life situations. We work to ensure that no Greenlandic child grows up in poverty, abuse, or neglect. Children must be heard and involved, and many more Greenlandic children and young people must have an education. We emphasize that our efforts are established in close cooperation with local authorities, organizations, professionals, children, and young people and with respect for local culture and language.

Greenlandic Children currently has 10 ongoing projects in Greenland and Denmark and is present in all Greenlandic municipalities, as well as in Copenhagen, Aarhus, Aalborg, Esbjerg, Randers and Vejle. The organization has 30 employees and more than 100 volunteers. The projects are financed by public funds, foundations, support, and sponsorship from companies as well as private members and contributors.

HM Queen Margrethe II is our protector, and in 2018 we received the Crown Prince Couple's Social Prize.

Aangezien je in dit project met kinderen gaat werken, stellen wij het verplicht om een VOG (Verklaring Omtrent Gedrag) aan te vragen.
