On Saturday, May 14, the Estonian Children’s Summer Camp Seedrioru hosted a special camp preparation workday, in that the camp was able to offer a daycamp that allowed children to become familiar with the camp’s activities and property, while allowing the parents to take part in the workday without having to worry about child care. All of this was possible because Seedrioru had successfully obtained financial support from the integration foundation (Integratsiooni Sihtasutus) of the foreign ministry of the Republic of Estonia. By all accounts, the event was a huge success – over 100 people took part in jobs to help prepare the camp property for the upcoming summer, while the children’s day camp had over 50 attendees. The camp’s kitchen volunteers had prepared a magnificent lunch and dinner for the children and volunteer workers and the evening ended with a traditional bonfire.
Upcoming events at Seedrioru include the traditional Suvihari summer event, which takes place on the July 1-3 long weekend. The children’s summer camp will be running for 4 weeks, starting on Sunday July 10, 2022. In addition to the regular 7-day per week overnight camp, there will also be a daycamp running from Monday to Friday for those children who do not yet wish to stay at camp overnight. Camp registration is already under way, with reduced camp fees available for those who register before May 31, 2022. Further information can be found on the Seedrioru website, www.seedrioru.com.
