Summer Camps for Ukrainian children 2023 

​​​​​The Summer Cam​ps for Ukrainian childre​n ​is a joint flagship initiative of the European Committee of the Regions and the Association of Ukrainian cities that was launched in 2022 in the aftermath of the war in in Ukraine. 

​The initiative is aimed at welcoming Ukrainian children in cities and regions across Europe and providing them with a safe place to play, learn, and interact with their European peers.​​​​​​​​​​​


About the Summer Camps

As a result of the joint efforts of the European Committee of the Regions, its Members and Association of Ukrainian cities, last year over 1250 children were welcomed in diverse cities and regions of the European Union - from the cities of Nimes, Athens, Rome, Tampere, Gdansk, Portimao to regions of Preili, Wielkopolska, Lubelskie, Maramures, Podkarpackie, Pomorskie, Bavaria, Lodzkie. It was a great opportunity for building bridges between European and Ukrainian young people that encouraged them to interact with their peers, play together, obtain their first experience of communicating in a foreign language, and receive psychological assistance to stabilize their mental health.

​​With a view of promoting the well-being of the most vulnerable ones and creating a sense of normality, stability, and hope that could help Ukrainian children recover from the effects of the war, the European Committee of the Regions together with the Association of Ukrainian cities are committed to promote this initiative by: 

  • engaging and connecting cities and regions of the European Union;
  • organizing informative and capacity-building sessions;
  • bringing together relevant stakeholders with the relevant expertise in the field for supporting local and regional authorities in their work.
