Camp Nuan Pt. 1 / Nanortalik, Greenland

Camp Nuan. Nanortalik, South Greenland. July-August 2016.

Much of Greenland looks like a fairytale. You have dramatic snowy peaks and some of the planet's most spectacular fjords. Huge icebergs fill the ocean, forming from breathtaking glaciers, then drifting to shores where colourful wooden houses sit. In many settlements, the houses are far from modern, some still without plumbing. It’s a simple life. With just 50,000 people living on the biggest island in the world, much of it is untouched and unspoiled.

I worked with Danish organisation, Foreningen Grønlandske Børn. For a month, 18 volunteers from eight different countries brought lots of different activities into the isolated settlement and made the most of what Nanortalik has to offer. We arranged sports, games, creative workshops and outdoor activities for everyone to participate in.

The following photos capture the Camp Nuan's ("nuan" meaning "great" in Greenlandic), journey in Nanortalik, creating an amazing experience for both the locals and volunteers.
