Who's It For & How Much?

The program was initially created to help the Ukrainian refugee families in Poland, but everyone is welcome! The camp is specifically geared for ages 5-18. Anyone ages 14-18 with a working knowledge of English can be a camp assistant, receive a stipend, and participate in advanced English lessons during camp.

Details on cost and registration coming soon! If you have any questions in the meantime, email us at admin@jp2project.org.

Camp Volunteers

American Young Adults & Parents of Participants

We will be seeking American volunteers to help run the English immersion camp! Young adults, ages 18-35 (or young at heart and full of energy), who hold a strong foundation in Christ and are eager to serve others, particularly the youth, are encouraged to apply! This is a perfect opportunity for students that are already in the Summer Study Abroad program. We will also need parents to help cook meals for the campers.

More details about volunteering and applications coming soon. If you have questions in the meantime, please email us at hello@jp2project.org.

Volunteering Details

Each volunteer is responsible for booking and paying for their flight (perfect opportunity to fundraise) as well as contributing $500 to help cover the cost of the program (craft supplies, sporting equipment, food, snacks, lodging, etc.). Upon arrival in Krakow, we will provide for all your needs – airport transport, lodging, food, etc.

Our Philosophy

Our English immersion camp is based on the same principles as our young adult programs: God, community, and conversation.

We help you grow closer to God in daily prayer, Sunday Mass, and by exploring his beautiful creation.

The very nature of our immersion camp facilitates friendship – shared experiences and fun times!

Together, campers will learn how to converse in English in the city where Pope Saint John Paul II likely studied the English language as well.
