Participants will have the opportunity to visit important cultural and historical sites, share their experiences in an inspiring environment, and discover new opportunities in Estonia, including getting acquainted with the country's system, activities of government institutions, educational opportunities, and business activities. Throughout the camp, we will explore various traditions, learn Estonian language, thereby helping to preserve and promote Estonian culture and identity worldwide.
