Journey Overview

Local churches in Serbia have been running summer youth camps since 2001. This is the first year OM will assist them. They need volunteers to run sports, games and activities for the youth. The purpose of this mission is to assist the local churches to run two summer holiday youth camps

  • ** Dates: There are 2 camps. The first camp is July 29 - Aug 4, for ages 10 to 14 years old. The second camp is Aug 5 - 11, for 15 - 25 year olds (young adults). You are welcome to come for one camp or both camps. One week is 250€, two weeks stay is 400€
  • ** Language: It is a must that you understand and speak English. If you doubt your capability to communicate in English or are unsure, please ask your home office for more information.
  • ** Camp: the first week are younger teenagers (10-14 years old). The second camp is 15 - 25 years old so different planning and games will be needed. Price excludes flights, visa, insurance & any possible vaccinations and is subject to change according to the exchange rate.

Applicants must be 18 or over. This outreach is tailored towards participants aged 18-50.

What To Expect

We need volunteers who are confident to run sports, games and crafts for youth. You need to have previous experience and are confident to run activities with little assistance (except language help). OM volunteers will be in charge of games, sports and craft activities.

We will also help the leaders with practical jobs (eg. preparing food, washing dishes, and basic cleaning duties). There will also be opportunity to socialise with the youth. They mostly speak Serbian, but most of them will be learning English at school and could be excited at the chance to practise English.
