UMAP member institutions are welcomed to apply to host a Discovery Camp program between December 2022-February 2023!
What is the Discovery Camp Program? Discovery Camps are immersive intercultural experiences during the summer or winter months, typically lasting 7-10 days. The host institutions organize the content and pay for all in-country expenses (tuition, accommodation, meals, field trips, etc.), so that a diversity of students from around the UMAP consortium can attend. Discovery Camps enable UMAP member institutions and countries to showcase their countries and cultures to students from across the UMAP network.
Beginning in 2022, UMAP has expanded the Discovery Camp model and will offer at least two Discovery Camp cycles per year: Summer and Winter. Applicants interested in hosting a Discovery camp can choose between offering a virtual or a physical camp. Programs must include content related to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Interested in applying to host a Discovery Camp? The hosting application is now open, with a deadline of July 8, 2022 for programs taking place between December 2022-and February 2023. Please use this link to access the application: https://forms.gle/nUtKyHeRY9BmyG8Z8 Applications to host Discovery Camps will be reviewed by UMAP’s Strategic Planning and Sustainable Development Goals Taskforce. Please note that this is a competitive process and it may not be possible to select all applicants.
