Unique international session in Kharkiv (day camp in July)

Make a difference!

The first international Magic Camp session is organized by NGO UMNITS (Kharkiv) and NGO Cincinnati Kharkiv Sister City Partnership (Cincinnati). It is a result of the very successful cooperation between these organizations in 2017 and 2018. The Ukrainian students who lived with American host families in Cincinnati are absolutely excited to host American teenagers in their native city, to enjoy a week of Magic Camp and to improve their personalities with the help of developmental Magic Camp program.



How do we make a difference?


Each American participant will:

• represent his/her country to his/her host family, other Ukrainian campers and citizens of Kharkiv;
• help break some stereotypes about the USA;
• broaden his/her horizon by learning about Ukraine and Ukrainians;
• every day assist his/her host sister/brother in improving their English skills;
• take part in interactive trainings to improve and practice soft skills — improving ourselves we make the world better!
• volunteer in at least 2 projects to help the community and set an example for Ukrainian campers in volunteering

Aims of the program: 
• to learn and accept culture of Ukraine and the USA as well as other people;
• to practice and improve soft skills;
• to take an active part in volunteering project and be aware that it is a way to improve soft and people skills;
• to explore Kharkiv and its history and culture.



1 - 11 July, 2021



Kharkiv, Ukraine 




Members of an American group live in the Ukrainian host families, go to Magic Camp accompanied by the host sister/brother, spend weekend with the host family.

As Ukrainian homes are generally not big, the Americans can live in a separate room or share a room with a host sister/brother.

Transportation around the city depends on the host family, Americans can be driven by cars or they can use public transport, in any case they are going to be accompanied by a member of their host family.



Who is this program for?

We invite teenagers both American and Ukrainian (13-16 years old), who are interested in
• learning other country history and culture,
• improving their communicational skills;
• developing their English skills (mostly for Ukrainian students);
• experiencing Ukrainian lifestyle (mostly for American students).
