If the first year was a success, the second Trekking Hellas Summer Dance Camp is going to be amazing! Kids will get acquainted with different styles of dance; will create their own choreography similar to other summer camp programs followed abroad. Camp participants follow the daily program of the camp, taking part in most camp activities while the dance participants follow a rich and demanding dance program in the afternoon. The dance program is practice and theory, discussion, choreography and rehearsals. Most lessons take place in a dance room with the exception of the yoga classes which are done outside.

Campers participate in volunteer cleaning of the forest, in trash art activities etc.
Achievement & Leadership Mount Olympus Challenge
This is a high quality youth program at Greece’s highest and most famous mountain, mythical home of the ancient Greek Gods. Under the guidance of one of the most competent Greek climbers (Pavlos Tsiantos – member of the first Greek team to climb Mt Everest), the team will try to conquer Mytikas at 2911m. This 4 day trip involves much more than walking and climbing; it is an experiential leadership and achievement program where all members have to contribute to the achievement of this common goal. Through this mission children will gain a unique experience that, apart from fun and entertaining, builds up to the development of “skills for life” such as communication, teamwork, goal setting, environmental awareness etc.
