Fun and exhausting!

9/10

New program for language immersion with Polish teenagers, great way to see Poland through locals' eyes while doing something that feels impactful. After a week or two in the camp setting, eating and talking and presenting and playing games together, it builds a sense of community and you kind of forget about the "real world" outside of the village. The volunteer work is demanding (expect to be "ON" from breakfast to bedtime) but totally worth the experience.

One thing I would change is to have a gym for participants and volunteers to use during free time.

I spent two weeks here and wouldn't hesitate to do it again!

I vonlunteered two weeks with Lingofun at Wolka Milanwska in the Kielce region of Poland and i must say it was a great experience from the start to the end. The coordinators of the camp were very helpful and gave us vivid guidelines of the location, assembly point and what we were expected to do prior to the camp. I had a really good accommodation during the camp and had a taste of polish delicacy. I am glad i took this volunteer opportunity with Lingofun, it had a positive impact in both the lives of the polish participants and volunteers, looking forward to another offer with Lingofun .

Way AWESOME!!!!

10/10

The staff are beyond amazing.
I have volunteered with other camps and organizations but none of them can compare to the amount of fun that I had here. The comfort I felt here is unmatched when thinking back to past experiences. Don't get me wrong.......I have loved every camp that I have been to, but this was by far my favorite. On top of all of my happiness here is a little money to help me continue my hitch hiking through Europe. Thank you for everything LingoFun. And good bye to all of my new friends. :D

How can this program be improved?

Give us 2 weeks together instead of 1 for each group.
It takes 1 week to really learn about eachother and be comfortable speaking together.
It is the same in other camps. 2 weeks would be perfect. =D =D =D
