For the fourth year in a row charity foundation „Palīdzē” would like to help many children and young adults live out their dream of participating in an exciting summer camp! This year we are planning 3 summer camps for a total of 60 children and young adults.

These camps are meant for those kids and young adults who do not have any other possibility to attend such camps for they are young adults from low-income, disadvantaged families as well as young people with functional disabilities. This year we are also planning a summer camp especially for children from Latgale region foster families.

Organizing various events for children and young adults who, due to various reasons, like illnesses, difficult living conditions, some trauma due to abuse experienced at home, etc, are unable to spend time away from home and the environment - which sometimes is very harsh - they’re used to we get more and more proof that summer camps and educational, cultural, sporting, and creative events are extremely important.

Its a pure joy and satisfaction to see these kids and young adults become more easy going, sociable, friendly and responsive after they’ve attended a summer camp!

We ask for your support in organization of the following camps:
- June 2 - 7, 2012. Six day camp „Tu to vari!” (“You can do it!”) in Koknese.
For 20 kids and young adults aged 11 to 20 years - members of the “Youth Club” (young adults with functional disabilities and those from families facing the risk of social rejection).
- August 6 - 11, 2012. Six day camp „Esam kopā!” (“We’re together!”) on the shores of lake Rāzna.
For 20 kids and young adults from foster families of Latgale region - orphans or children who are not taken care of by their parents and are currently living in a foster family.
- Summer 2012. A 4 day camp „Iepazīsti lauku dzīvi” (“Get to know the country life”) in Eleja.
For 20 kids and young adults aged 11 to 22 years from Riga, Jūrmala and other major towns who come from families facing the social risk.

In order to ensure the success of these camps, we currently need LVL 6227.47.

This amount includes expenses related to catering, hiring of professional camp leader and teachers, transportation, materials for creative workshops, transportation of specialists, camp equipment, excursions and other things necessary for organization of these camps.
