Project content can be divided in 3 main blocks closely connected to each other:
1-st – health
2-nd – studying(classes)
3-rd – educational (mass activities, excursions, exhibitions, contests etc.)
Most of camp participants are IDPs children from ATO territories and Crimea who live in Ivano-Frankivsk aged 3-14 (up to 30 children session).
Children are divided into groups 10 people each with pedagogue attached to each group. Each group has its own name and motto. Project building logic is following: realization of session aims is a kind of adventure game.
Camp is free for all children.
During camp sessions all campers will be able to participate interesting excursions. We will have contests, quizzes, activities during the session participated by children who will be able to show their intellect, creative and physical skills.
We also offer bonus scheme in the camp to stimulate personal development. For active participation activities, winning contests, sport contests teams and teammates will be awarded with bonuses. At the final day of the session children will be able to spend bonuses for gifts for their friends and gifts for themselves, we will also announce the winner who will take main prize of the session.
