SUMMER ADVENTURE SCHOOL

for small and big dreamers

Once again we are setting on a  summertime journey through time!

Together,  we will travel back to the age of dinosaurs, we will track down the formation of rocks over large periods of time, we will unravel the secrets of water,  plants and animals, we will outlive earthquakes, volcanoes and fires, we will learn how to behave properly in the mountain. Doing so we will  get acquainted with Nature and hone our love for her beauty in order to preserve it better, and because we are dreamers – we will reach for the stars and we will fly in Space!

The adventures are set to take place in the area of the sport center Ophelii, at the heart of Vitosha Nature Park. We have carefully planned daily activities that include sport climbing, mountain hikes, alpine rope challenges and many outdoor recreational games. Our “partners in crime” in these art and science workshops will be “Space Challenges”, “Bio Games”, “DNK Science Entertainment”, “Nutty Scientists” and many others! All of the activities have been specially selected to captivate the children from the very first interaction,  to provoke their natural curiosity and to seamlessly accumulate skills and knowledge, while building models and tokens as reminders of their summer adventure!

 

Join our summer adventures and get ready for an unforgettable journey! 🙂
