book an unforgettable experience at the
Soaring Crane Summer Camp for
Disadvantaged Children and Youth
Come stay in a traditional Mongolian ger up the valley from Horse Trek Mongolia and volunteer to help some of the most disadvantaged youth on the planet - those children whose families survive by scavenging in the garbage or children who themselves burrow into the ground as subsistence "ninja coal miners". Help them grow through an experiential education programme that involves sports, horseback riding, swimming in the river, hiking, orienteering and an abundance of natural arts and crafts programmes Your stay will be $50.00 day which includes rustic accommodation in a ger, meals with the children and tons of fun. All proceeds all go directly to help the children. References and background checks required.
Or - if you prefer to volunteer in the city or just meet the children benefitting from your trek, let us know an we can organize a visit to the Peak community whose members make their living scavenging from the dump. The Children of the Peak Sanctuary welcomes a limited number of international visitors who would like to come up and play with or teach these very needy children.
