800 people enjoy youth summer camp in
Erbil-Hewler, Kurdistan region (Iraq), -- A
total of 800 young people from all over Kurdistan
participated in the Region's first ever summer camp
organised by the Ministry of Sports and Youth (MOSY).
The summer camp was designed to give young people
aged 18 to 30 an opportunity to network, exchange
ideas and learn new skills through courses and
seminars. Following the success of this first camp,
MOSY has decided to organise one ever year.
The camp was held for a month in the beautiful
mountainous area of Dęreluk in Amędi, Duhok
province. Volunteers provided several courses and
activities including English, computer studies,
mountain climbing, swimming, canoeing and football.
MOSY organised regular seminars on gender and
environmental politics, language and literature, the
role of young people and their future prospects.
Attending the camp as guest speakers were
representatives from the KRG and the ministries of
education, health, labour and social affairs, and
Mr Taha Barwary, the Minister for Sport and Youth,
said, "MOSY would like to take this opportunity to
thank all the participants for helping to make the
project a great success, and looks forward to
facilitating other enriching experiences for young
people in the future."
The young campers also visited historically and
culturally important sites and cities in the
Kurdistan Region. This was the first chance for many
to broaden their horizons and see places outside
their home communities.
