Summer Camps for Ukrainian children 

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Summer Camps for Ukrainian children is a joint flagship initiative of the European Committee of the Regions and the Association of Ukrainian Cities and was launched in 2022. The initiative welcomes Ukrainian children to cities and regions across Europe and provides them with a safe place to enjoy cultural, sports, educational and recreational activities. It makes a difference by giving them a break from the brutal reality of war. Summer holiday projects also help Ukrainian children and young people: they have the chance to feel that Europe is their home and a place where they can be safe, build a community and feel supported.

​​​​Su​​mmer Camps initiative: 2024

The European Committee of the Regions, along with EU cities and regions and in cooperation with the Association of Ukrainian Cities, is committed to keeping up the summer camps initiative in 2024.

On 24 April, the European Committee of the Regions and the Association of Ukrainian Cities held an online informative session on how to organise summer camps, which brought together representatives of more than 40 cities and regions from 16 Member States. During the session, local and regional authorities that have already hosted Ukrainian children shared their experience and practical insights on how to get started and run a successful summer camps project.

Building on the experience of previous years and this year's informative session, the European Committee of the Regions and the Association of Ukrainian Cities have prepared support materials​, which contain practical tips outlining the steps that local and regional authorities are advised to follow when organising a summer holiday project for Ukrainian children.

Cities and regions are invited to join the Summer Camps for Ukrainian Children initiative! Please let us know what your ideas and plans are for this year, by writing to us at SupportUkraine@cor.europa.eu or by ​filling in a short questionn​aire​​​​.​

As a result of the efforts of the European Co​mmittee of the Regions, its members and the Association of Ukrainian Cities, over 1250 children were welcomed to various cities and regions of the European Union in 2022, the initiative's first year of operation.

​The summer camps initiative was twice as successful in 2023, with more than 3000 Ukrainian children hosted by communities across Europe (in 50 cities and regions from 16 Member States). The video clip in the multimedia section below provides an overview of the initiative in 2023.
