Back to basic school camps ,since the beginning from our company in 2003 we organised adventure camps for schools ,teams and adults , each camp is a tailor-made event on its own .
The back to basic adventure camps are based on Outdoor Learning experience.
Outdoor Learning can provide a dramatic contrast to the indoor classroom. Direct experience outdoors is more motivating and has more impact and credibility.Through skilled teaching, interpretation or facilitation, outdoor experiences readily become a stimulating source of fascination, personal growth and breakthroughs in learning.
The duration from a camp can start from 1 night to 3-5-8 days .
During these days the kids learn outdoor camping skills which are essential for their later life ,teamwork is the way to have a successful camp .
The outdoor program is a hands on experience ,what means that the kids learn to work together from small taks as gathering fire wood for the camp fire and cooking to keep each other safe on the adventure programs

Outdoor Learning is active learning in the outdoors
Participants learn through what they do, through what they encounter and through what they discover. Participants learn about the outdoors, themselves and each other, while also learning outdoor skills. Active learning readily develops the learning skills of enquiry, experiment, feedback, reflection, review and cooperative learning.
Outdoor Learning broadens horizons and stimulates new interests
There is no limit to the experiences and curiosities that outdoor environments and activities can arouse. Participants frequently discover potential, abilities and interests that surprise themselves and others. Safety codes provide clear boundaries and learning goals give clear direction, but Outdoor Learning draws in energy and inspiration from all around. 'Broadening horizons' is a common outcome.
The plus factor for outdoor education back to basic camp activities
Exposure and access to green spaces can have a wide range of social, economic, environmental and health benefits
Urban green spaces are major contributors to the quality of the environment and human health and well-being in inner city and suburban areas.
Outdoor activities provides an opportunity to increase quality of life and heighten social interaction.
Physical activity in the natural environment not only aids an increased life-span, greater well-being, fewer symptoms of depression, lower rates of smoking and substance misuse but also an increased ability to function better at work and home.
Our guest stated being 'in the countryside' and 'contact with nature' as key motivating factors to be active.
