"Summer in the City" - Recreational activities for children

ELIX, drawing on its 25 years of experience in volunteering and in designing/implementing projects with social impact, created in 2012 a recreational activities program for children, aged 6 to 12, with the title "Summer in the City" (in Greek: Diakopes sto Sholio).

The project was initially implemented (2012 and 2013) in the Municipalities of Athens, Zografou, Maroussi and Piraeus, while ELIX continued the program in the coming years, securing funding from other sources in order to maintain such an important initiative.


This program was sponsored by institutions such as the Stavros Niarchos Foundation and the Hellenic Hope, and is implemented with the sponsorship of the Hellenic Petroleum Group since 2017.

The aim of the program is to support working parents and families experiencing financial difficulties by offering their children the opportunity to participate in activities where their interests will be addressed and their talents developed through recreational activities that a team of experts, educators and trained volunteers from around the world have designed.

Watch the video of the program in 2012 and 2013:

    When I started to talk about the possibility of joining a voluntary workcamp during the summer, nobody took me seriously. Nor did I, in the first place. I was not the kind of person to do something like that. That was what I thought, and what all the others thought too, I can guess.
