IMPORTANT NOTE

CANCELLATION

 

Dear Summer Camp Participant, 


Based on the joint decision of Turkish Association of Social Workers, Mugla Metropolitan Municipality and Liverpool Hope University, we decided to cancel 'Social Work Summer Camp 2020' due to the COVID-19 global pandemic. 


We were planning to host students and academics from Germany, India, Nigeria, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Turkey and United Kingdom to discuss climate crisis and its implications for social work. Within last few months, we spent hours and days with our Turkish and British Colleagues to prepare an inclusive and student-led program. However, due to the unprecedented global crisis, public health and safety has become our priority.  We understood that canceling the Summer Camp is our only option at these unusual days. 

We will initiate repayment procedures as soon as possible. However, we know that it will take at least 30 to 45 days to complete transactions. 

If you have any questions or concerns please email us. You can access our contact details at the official web page of the camp (https://swscamp.com/contact-us).

We would like to thank you all for global interest to our Social Work Summer Camp in Turkey. We hope we will see you next year in Mugla/Turkey.

Welcome to the International Social Work Summer Camp in Turkey.

  

Welcome to the International Social Work Summer (SWS) Camp  in Turkey. SWS is a joint (not for profit) initiative of Muğla Metropolitan Municipality (Dept. of Social Services), Muğla Branch of Turkish Association of Social Workers and School of Social Sciences at Liverpool Hope University (United Kingdom). 

We aim to create alternative & informal learning platform for social work/social science students to discuss our common professional agenda, to learn from each other and to explore different cultures. 

The SWS Camp has been initiated by Muğla Branch of Turkish Association of Social Workers and Muğla Metropolitan Municipality in 2017 as regional summer camp for Turkish social work students with support of local social work academics. In 2018 School of Social Sciences at Liverpool Hope University has joined the Camp organization. The SWS Camp has become a joint platform for Turkish and British Social Work/Social Sciences students since July 2018. 

The SWS Camp is now open to all social work/social sciences students across the world. 

We planned to learn, discuss and have fun come and join  in Summer 2020 in Fethiye-Muğla but due to COVID 19 (Corona Virus), the camp CANCELED!!!
