At Urban City Camp, young people can immerse themselves the world of hip-hop.

Sebastian, 13, brings us along to his favourite Helsinki summertime activity: Urban City Camp, where young people can immerse themselves in the world of hip-hop music, street art and media production.

Participants also get to enjoy the summer by chilling outdoors, walking through the forest and swimming in the sea. Organised by the City of Helsinki Youth Department and held in the eastern suburb of Vuosaari, the camp lasts one week and is open to 13-to-25-year-old Helsinkians.
