Kampi Pa Emer / Camp No Name  www.campnoname.com
 

Kampi Pa Emër (Camp No Name) is a summer camp in Librazhd, Albania (located on the eastern border of Macedonia, the northern border of Greece and across the Adriatic Sea and Ionian Sea from Italy.)  The one week camp is open free of charge to boys and girls from poor  Albanian and Roma communities. Our mission is to engender tolerance and personal growth in all campers and their families regardless of ethnicity. 

 

In 2008, Peace Corps Volunteer Joey Deschenes and his at the time fiancé, now wife Alba Deschenes, had an idea that an American-style summer camp could bring together Albanian and Roma kids to play despite the negative stereotypes that divide them.  Not only did the first camp change attitudes, but the fun factor spread by word of mouth with more kids and families looking to sign.  Every year since, Camp No Name has grown to welcome more kids, ready to sing, play, swim and build - all in a space where skin color just does not matter.    
 

At Camp No Name, the children learn about important life lessons, including tolerence and acceptance of others and team building.  They participate in sports and arts & crafts.  In 2015 we were excited to deliver dental treatment and important lessons on oral health and hygiene.  We are most proud though that Camp No Name teaches peace, love, and friendship.
