Language camps 2023 for young Estonians living abroad

Youngsters with Estonian roots who live abroad are invited once again to attend language and culture camps in Estonia. 

Designed for young people aged 13-18, the camps are an opportunity for them to study Estonian, get to know local Estonians their own age and learn more about the country’s culture. Among other things, they go sightseeing and on excursions and play sports together. We want young Estonians living abroad to feel a connection to their homeland and to the Estonian language.

There will be three camps offering in summer 2023:

  • Camp 1 will be held from 3 - 13 July for youngsters whose Estonian skills are elementary.
  • ​​​​Camp 2 will be held from 17 - 27 July for youngsters who speak Estonian at an intermediate level.
  • Camp 3 will be held from 31 July - 10 August for youngsters who speak Estonian at an upper-intermediate or fluent level.

Registration for the camp will be closed 23.04.2023. Please note that registration does not guarantee a place in the camp. We will send a final confirmation of your participation in the camp by e-mail. We make a choice based on the young person's language skills, motivation, age, country of residence, time of living outside Estonia and the number of times they have been in the camp before.

Further information and the application form are available here (in Estonian).
