SummerGo Sports camp offers a variety of outdoor activities, team Building & water sports. A Training course on personal development and experiential nonformal learning in outdoors methods and tools, designed for youthworkers, youthleaders & athletes.
Our activity program guarantees a healthy balance between training, study and leisure time that allows campers to relax and unwind. Our dynamic team organizes a full program of elective social activities and outings.
The main aim is to empower participants with skills and knowledge, to develop and lead international youth and volunteer activities worldwide.
By inviting to this project mostly youth-workers we tend to strengthen cooperation between different stakeholders and to make space for building long-lasting partnerships. We will also encourage our participants towards creating a wide international network that will promote Sports & healthy lifestyle.
Moreover this training will be an opportunity for the participants to share experiences among themselves that will further increase the quality of the created projects.
The groups are arranged by age, and sports are adapted to each group’s age-range. The camper groups alternate tuition and sports & activities, e.g. those doing classes in the morning will do sports & activities in the afternoon. Besides sports like tennis, football, basketball, swimming, volleyball etc, participants will go in for skill games and strategy teambuilding. Some of these activities will take place at the facilities whereas others will take place inside the water. There is creative performance, dancing and arts as well.
While the campers are going in for sports and activities, we promote respect, fun and a team spirit at all times. The campers’ safety and supervision are guaranteed at all times, Campers do a minimum of two sports and one activity per day.
