The Summer Club for young adults, which was a great hit last summer, is postponed from June to the first two weeks of August. We at the Youth Shelters and Helsinki and Uusimaa district want to provide fun activities to young adults after a challenging spring.

In the Summer Club we get together to spend time and do summer activities in Helsinki and the metropolitan area. The events are free of charge and are mainly held outdoors so that we can keep the recommended distance between the participants. 

The purpose of the Summer Club is to hang out and do things together in a relaxed environment. There are no requirements as to who can attend the Summer Club – everyone is welcome to come as they are.

The Summer Club takes place between 3 August and 15 August 2020 on Tuesday and Thursday evenings and on two Saturdays. A detailed schedule of the Summer Club can be found here. 

August activities!

Do you want to have fun activities in August and enjoy the summer’s last warm days in good company?

In the Summer Club, we gather outside together to play ball games, make street art or explore the beautiful nature sites in the metropolitan area. Sometimes we will just enjoy relaxed picnic lunches. 

You can attend the Summer Club alone or with a friend. There are always Red Cross volunteers present at the Summer Club events so that everyone has someone to talk to.

Up to 15 people can attend each event to ensure the recommended safety distances. In addition, we require the participants’ contact details so that we can contact them afterwards.

Join us once or every time! Ask for more information or sign up now via email kotipolku@redcross.fi or via Whatsapp message +358 (0)40 5478 829.

Would you join as a volunteer to the Summer Club? You can sign up to volunteer in as many events as you can.

We will provide a two-hour orientation to the Summer Club volunteers in June. Last year’s Summer Club volunteers do not have to participate in the orientation again.
