This project is included to European Heritage Volunteers Partner Projects for 2017
PROJECT:
The village Pidkamin (translatable into English as "below the rock stone") takes its name from an inselberg called the "Devil's Rock", which is located on an adjacent hill.  The land in the village and around it is full of piety. The rock stone in pre-Christian times served as a kind of talisman to protect people from evil. With the adoption of Christianity, here was located the temple-fortress. Opposite the rock on a hill was located a Dominican monastery which made. Pidkamin known.  Legend says that it once sheltered 12 monks fleeing Kyiv in 1234 when it was ravaged by Mongols. They built a chapel and set up a cross but did not survive long. The Mongol invasion reached their village, the shrine was destroyed and the monks were killed. Pidkamin and the monastery of the Dominican Order are first mentioned in records from the 15th century. A century later the town was attacked once again and the monastery was demolished. It was restored to its present form in the 17-18th centuries and preserved till now in half ruined state. The Dominican Monastery today belongs to the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church. At present there are 2 monks and one priest living in the monastery, who are working in order to renovate this holly place. The state does not allocate any funds for restoration while the walls continue to crumble, so NGOs and private companies are helping the monks. NGOs organize volunteer camps where young people from different countries come to help the monks restore the church. Private companies provide technical assistance.

PROJECT:
This will be a summer language children camp (English). All together there will be around 25-30 children from different social and ethnic background including those from low-income families (economically disadvantaged) and from inner refugees (those moved from conflict zone). The camp for children is sponsored by Volodymyrets District Collegium (primary and secondary school). It will take place on Collegium’s recreation camp site among pine forests on the shore of beautiful and clean water lake,  equipped with wooden bungalows and all the facilities.

The aim of the camp is to provide educational and healthy recreation opportunities to children. Among the other ideas of the camp are integration of different social groups, promotion of mutual understanding and tolerance, development of interpersonal communication, socialization and informal education of children.

Volunteers are welcome to join this camp and bring their international spirit to encourage children to learn about the other cultures, to get children motivated to learn English (because having the possibility to use it with for international communication the lessons of English at school is a sort of “dead” subject without an interest to learn it).

Volunteers will have a chance to share their enthusiasm, knowledge, experience with children, who in their turn will help volunteers to discover multicolour Ukraine.

WORK:
Volunteers will be divided between different children age groups (12-15 years old) and will assist the tutors in different educational and leisure activities: workshops, competitions, sports, walks, parties, campfire, dancing, swimming in the lake, boating etc. .  Informal teaching will run in form of games, songs, performances, arts&crafts. Volunteers should expect to be engaged in work with children from morning to evening, while we believe it will be much more pleasure then duty
