We are a team of young teachers who seeks an alternative to the traditional school system. We want to give children a holistic education.

We believe children can learn more and faster through exploration and experience. We believe that emotion comes from motion so we combined theory with experiments, sports, dance and traditional crafts. We want to give children the opportunity to explore their talents, to find out what they're good at, so that they can become strong and valuable members of our society. We believe in freedom of choice and we would like to give children a wide range of experience so that they can choose the right path for themselves. 

We believe in children!

This is why earlier this year we organized a series of activities, where we gathered 30 children between the ages 6 - 10 years old, in order to give them an experience of what life and nature have to offer. We offered them the possibility to practice archery, to ride horses and to exercise their artistic side by painting on glass among many other things. Since it all started out as an educational project most activities were held in the German language, due to the fact that it represents a major cultural aspect of the Sibiu society.

WHAT IS THIS PROJECT ABOUT? 
In the beginning of September we would like to organize a complete such camp where the children can freely express themselves and create long lasting friendships. We want to offer them the possibility of being free, unchained and we desire to incorporate even more activities in our schedule, so that they may have the opportunity to try out everything they do not, under normal conditions, have access to. These will not be limited to just bike rides, archery, rappels and zip lines or horse rides but we will also like to encourage their natural artistic talent by introducing painting, pottery and weaving workshops, which will help them express their artistic tendencies in an explosion of color and form. These activities will be held in the German language, in order to help the children gain access to more knowledge regarding the use of foreign languages and help them open their horizons to new possibilities of personal development. 
Use of funds 
In order to make all this possible, we need your help. Your contribution will help buy all the materials necessary for this trip and to pay for the costs associated with lodging and meals, salaries of external help, renting the horses, the zip line fees, materials for the artistic workshops and much more. Help the children experience life in all true forms.

1.Even if we should encounter harsh weather conditions, we have prepared a series of indoor activities, which will give children the opportunity to develop everything we mentioned in the description.

2. Different language abilities. 

3. Lack of attention/ concentration on behalf of the children which could lead to dangerous situations.

4. Different ages and backgrounds.

5. The children might feel homesick.

We plan to do a wide range of activities and create a pleasant atmosphere so that every child feels amazing in the company of the team and their colleagues. The children will be split into two groups, depending on their level of language mastery.

6. We won't have enough participants.

We are already promoting the Adventurecamp and failure is not an option! ;-)
