Welcome to youth department´s summer camps!
On holiday all summer long! If you need holiday activities, you can choose the ones you like the most from about 200 camps, courses and other nice summer activities. How about a adventure camp, going to a band camp or go-kart camp? Check out www.harrastushaku.fi right before the beginning of the summer and spend your holidays in the way that best fits you.
The themes to which the camps are devoted range from adventure to music and arts, from Harry Potter to animals. The programmes feature a lot of interesting things to do, new pals, experiences in the bosom of nature and in the pulsing life of the city. The competent staff of the Youth Department direct and guide activities.
A large part of our summer camps are held on the legendary island of Bengtsår in superb archipelago scenery. Others take place in the Youth Department’s own centres in the Helsinki Metropolitan Area as well as at other camps and excursion destinations elsewhere in Finland.
