Beaver Ben Camps 2018: our sustainability project continues

Date 2018-07-25

Since 2016 Baltic Blues Travel has been organizing the charity project – ecological summer camps for disadvantaged children in the Curonian Spit National Park.

We organize these camps for 3 major reasons:

  • To organize happy summer holidays for disadvantaged children – something that they would never be able to experience without us.
  •  To raise awareness of environmental issues among children.
  • To protect a fragile nature of the Curonian Spit and minimize the negative impact of tourism.

We invite orphans and children living in poverty to spend 10 days in one of the most beautiful nature parks in the Baltic States – the Curonian Spit. It is is a UNESCO World Heritage site and is a live natural museum where long chains of sand dunes and forest are home for rare animals. The mass tourism challenges this unique and fragile environment. Therefore Baltic Blues feels responsibility to protect the beauty of this natural park.

 

In 2016-2018 Baltic Blues has organized summer 5 camps for 87 kids.

This year we organized 2 summer camps of 10 days for 34 children from 7 till 15 y. o.

 

They come from 2 Help Centers for socially disadvantaged groups from a small Lithuanian provincial town Birzai. These children live in poverty and most of them have never seen sea or traveled outside their region.

In our summer camps these kids participated in numerous activities, i.e. various workshops about environmental protection, team building and sport games, excursions, trekking, hand-craft classes.

They have also spent 40 hours of cleaning the beach and dunes and collected 8500 liters of garbage.

 

Moreover every year Baltic Blues’ staff volunteers to spend one weekend cleaning the sea shores together with the children.

 

We would like to say special thank you to our partners for their financial support:

  •  Alventus viajes, Spain
  •  Kontiki, Switzerland
  • Maretravel, Lithuania
  • Lauvas turs, Latvia

We are happy to share a report from Beaver Camps 2018:
