Children’s camps
survival in nature

Children’s camps are intended for children aged 8 to 13. They take place over the weekend, from Friday afternoon to Sunday afternoon.

The camp is held in the vicinity of Kočevje and combines survival skills, fun, games and socializing.

The program is designed as a game. They start the first day with practically nothing, then with each new skill they acquire, they are rewarded with points that can be exchanged for equipment, additional food, tools and new workshops. In this way, children shape the course of their day themselves. There is also a lot of teamwork and strategy involved in how to spend points.

Anticipated activities and knowledge that the children will receive:

  • correct and safe use of the knife,

  • the basics of orientation (by the sun, stars, with a needle, …),
  • recognizing animal tracks,
  • edible and useful plants,
  • collecting wild food and preparing wild meals and teas,
  • production of torches, spoons and containers,
  • archery,
  • setting up camp (bivouacs, beds, fireplace, …),
  • making fire in primitive ways (with a bow and stick, with matchsticks, with cotton wool and ashes),
  • throwing knives, axes and ninja stars,
  • overcoming fear of the dark and
  • and so much more!

There will also be plenty of time for play and leisure while learning skills.

Equipment for participants:

  • warm sleeping bag,
  • sleeping mat,
  • water bottle or water bottle (at least 3 l),
  • a set of camping accessories (soup bowl, spoon, fork, glass).

The instructors take care of the food and all the other equipment needed for cooking and conducting the workshops.​

The camp is suitable for everyone, no previous knowledge is necessary

The price of the camp is €130/child or €110 if 2 (brothers/sisters) register.
