About us

Vision

Our vision is to create a small beautiful society especially for children. Children are the leading characters and our daily duty is to guide them and help them discover their own path in life. A small society where we combine several sport activities, entertainment and education with main target to develop better individuals and foster an atmosphere of cooperation and friendship.

Philosophy

We strongly believe that the camp is not just a summer holidays. Our goal is to offer children days of joy in a beautiful natural environment. Through team work, games and the daily programme we have created a small, structured and organized society. While playing and having fun, children learn to: respect and accept diversity, believe in equality and to work in teams. Our programme aims to develop both body and spirit through sports, entertainment and education.
