WikiCamps are educational camps, the main goal of which is the education of participants through Wikipedia, Wiktionary, and other Wikimedia projects. During Wikicamps participants contribute and enrich one or more of Wikimedia projects with the help of more experienced Wikimedians. WikiCampers improve their editing, writing, speaking, translation, communication, cultural and computer skills. Along with editing, campers also visit cultural heritage sights, play intellectual and sports games, sing, dance etc. WikiCamps balance contribution, education and fun.
