- Team leaders
In the morning
We wake up the children, we help them get ready and dress up and then we head to the restaurant to have breakfast.
At breakfast, we serve the children and then we join them at the table. Once we’re done, we start cleaning the tables we are responsible for.
After breakfast we return to the room and help the children to tidy the room and their personal belongings. After showing them how to do it, we supervise the process.
Activities – Sea- Pool
Then we prepare ourselves and the kids for the activities, the sea or the pool.
For the sports schedule:
Group leaders announce the daily sports program to the team leaders.
Children should be properly dressed (sports clothing, hat, sunscreen, sneakers, a bottle of water).
After preparing our team we head to the sport activity that we have in our programme. We try to be on time. During the sport activity, we help the trainer, we play with the kids and pay attention to those who don’t participate, while trying to motivate and encourage them to do so.
For the pool:
We make sure that all children are properly dressed and prepared (swimsuit, flip-flops, and towel) and we head to the pool area as a team. Before entering the pool everyone should take a quick shower (there are showers next to the pool).
Kids together with their leader, get into the pool following the lifeguard’s instructions. No one is allowed to enter the pool without a leader. Pay attention to those children who can’t swim, so that they stay at the shallow side of the pool.
For the sea:
We make sure that all children are properly dressed and prepared (swimsuit, hat, sunscreen, flip-flops, and towel). When we arrive at the beach, leaders head to the sea and kids follow them into the water. Please be careful of dangerous plunges and remind the kids to remain inside the designated area (inside the safety line). While we’re getting ready to go back, we check if all of our campers are next to us and then we return to the camp all together.
We make sure that all the kids take a shower after visiting the pool or the sea.
Noon – Lunch – Midday rest
At noon, we are getting ready for lunch. At the restaurant, we serve the children and then we join them at the table. Once we’re done, we start cleaning the tables we are responsible for.
After lunch, we have the midday rest, and some children have their English lessons. During the midday rest, all children stay inside the houses with their team leader. They can either play table games or get ready for the entertainment program.
After the snack, we are getting ready for the sports schedule, the pool or for the sea (see description above).
After finishing with the activities, we are getting ready for the dinner. At the restaurant, we serve the children and then we join them at the table. Once we’re done, we start cleaning the tables we are responsible for.
Entertainment activities – Bedtime
Every night we organize a different activity and various events (theatre, singing, disco, masque parties, contests, games etc.). We also organize excursions to the nearby villages, overnights at the seaside etc. The participation of the leaders in all these activities is the key of success. Team leaders motivate the children to actively participate in the games and the activities.
When the evening program ends, we go back to our section and put the campers in their beds. We remain inside the room until all children fall asleep.
In our camp there’s also a medical centre, consisted of two doctors and two nurses. In case of an accident or an illness, we help the camper reach the medical centre in order to be provided with the appropriate medical care. During this time, we should inform our group leader or another team leader to pay attention to the other campers of ours. If necessary, there is an infirmary, where campers can stay until they fully recover.
During the day, each group leader meets with his team leaders, so as to inform them about the daily schedule (sports schedule, night entertainment) or to give them some advice about the daily routine. In any case, campers should never be unattended. This means that collaboration between the members of each section, from the section manager to each and every team leader, is more than essential.
*Team leaders are mainly working in shifts, announced by the section leader so that the campers are continuously supervised, and at the same time team leader will rest during the day. English teachers participate in the daily program when team leaders rest.
Our camp offers 30 different sports activities. A group of 80 trainers is responsible for the daily sports program. Each trainer welcomes the children and explains basic facts about the activity he is responsible for. His role is to motivate children, help them and entertain them. Trainers work together with the team leaders in order to ensure the program and its goals are implemented.
Due to our daily rotating schedule children have the opportunity to get to know all of our activities during their stay. There’s also the “hobby hour” where children get to practice their favorite activity. The activities offered at Skouras camp are:
