No summer is complete without TOKA’s full of energy and fun camps.
Since 2015, TOKA has organized camps to educate Kosovar youth. This year, same as every year, TOKA is organizing summer camps for all young people in Kosovo. Camps are educational experiences that aim to help develop new leaders through positive community goals.
So far TOKA has organized over 50 camps including over 1,000 participants not only from Kosovo but also from the region, Europe, USA – and even from New Zealand!
For summer 2022, 4 different camps are planned:
