About our Learning Camps the Openmind Style
Campers learn together, finding out about important issues like food and health by searching online, to share, discuss, evaluate and debate, what is good and what is bad for you.
They learn to learn and that it is fun to learn in our camps!

Camper Wah Wah from Burma: ’The debates make me more confident. I learn English by searching, discussing, not by heart! First the volunteers teach me and then we have to search and find information and discuss with our friends before we present the information.’
