Info about the Camp H.E.A.L.

Camp H.E.A.L. will be held this year in cooperation with the community organization Sprianya, from August 9-15, 2009 for approximately 60 students aged 16-22 from different cities across Ukraine. Each group of students will be supervised by an adult from their local area. These adults will also undergo HIV/AIDS education training to bring back to their community.

The main goal of this camp is to help spread accurate messages about HIV/AIDS through the development of a peer education program. The participants who attend this camp will also be trained on: anti-human trafficking, healthy lifestyles, peer pressure, and leadership, in addition to HIV/AIDS. Both PCVs and Ukrainians will teach lessons on these topics, as well as equip the students with the skills to train peers in their home communities. The participants will break into groups and provide presentations on what they have learned to campers in other area camps nearby. This will increase their confidence, presentation skills, and provide a practical component to their camp experience.

Finally, the students and their accompanying Peace Corps Volunteer will design their own HIV/AIDS projects to implement in their communities with the information they received at camp. Camp H.E.A.L. is sponsored by community organization Sprianya and the members have already demonstrated a commitment to helping plan and implement the camp. The organization will provide community contributions through labor, use of equipment, and class instruction. Students will pay for their own travel to and from the camp, as well as expenses incurred while traveling. Partnership funds will help pay for land rental and food from other sponsors.
