Camp for Youth with Polish language and culture

"Explorers' Summer" /online/

 
Ladies and Gentlemen,

This year we are again organizing the “Explorers’ Summer" Youth Camp in an online format. The threat of COVID-19 doesn't allow us to run stationary programs, and we want to ensure maximum safety for all participants.

We are aware that all of us would prefer to be able to travel around Poland and meet in person, without a computer connection. However, we can assure you that the online edition of "Explorers' Summer" can also provide participants with plenty of unforgettable attractions. Last year's experience in implementing the program and the enthusiastic feedback received from participants attest to this belief.

In 2021 we wish to offer the fullest possible program; thus, our participants will be able to learn Polish effectively and in an interesting way while interacting with colleagues from many different countries. We have prepared many additional attractions: social and cultural meetings, as well as online trips during which we will get to know Poland, its rich culture and traditions. Some time has also been set aside to enable participants to simply have fun and talk with colleagues.

You are warmly invited!
