Camps for children
Let us teach our children to love rivers
Rafting, jumping from rocks, swimming in the river, canoeing and morning warm-up designed to show students (children) that adventures can be part of our lives – now, in the XXI century, and here in Bulgaria. Participants in the children’s camp will not only learn how to safely descend rivers, interesting facts about the life of rivers, but they will experience the power of nature. Shown in the form of games and entertainment, the methods for survival in nature will make your children more powerful. This will open the doors to life with capital L … mainly full of adventure.
