Creativity&nature camp in Chicago for Estonian children July 31 – August 6 2023

You have the chance to become one of the lucky Estonian children who will have the opportunity to participate in a nature and creativity camp with other Estonian children. But not just Estonian children, rather Estonian children living in North America! You will spend time together to have fun and excitement, enjoying a beautiful summer with activities together. It’s the kind of camp you’ve never heard of before, and you’ve never had the chance to take part in, because it’s happening for the first time. All children are welcome – whatever your interests and talents are. All we expect from you is curiosity.

You should definitely say ‘yes‘ to the invitation if you are:

  • Between 6 – 17 years old
  • If you know you have at least one talent
  • You are aware of your talent and you are brave enough to use it
  • Curious to apply your talent in a new situation or to discover a new skill in yourself.
  • Willing to travel somewhere you may not have been before
  • Mature enough to spend 7 days without your parents
  • If you said “yes” to all of the above, be ready for a very fun challenge.
  • Younger campers (3-5 years old) will have the opportunity to participate in two half days of camp life and the final performance.

Prepare for the summer, pack your suitcase and get ready to spend July 31st, 2023-August 6th, 2023 at a youth camp in Chicago’s Estonian House, USA.
