Duration of the project:

month long program 2002, 2007

Place of the event:

Bratislava, Slovak Mountains, Krakow, Budapest, Prague, Vienna

Objective:

International educational program focused on leadership skills for high-school students. The goal was to encourage them to accept responsibility in their home communities and allow them to learn about other cultures.

Participants:

20 US, 15 Slovak, 15 International (13 countries) students in the 15 – 17 age group

Description:

During World Camp 2002, 2007 we managed to connect young people from around the world. The program combined learning by experience, lectures by representatives of non-profit organizations, visits to important historical sites and meetings with civil leaders and authorities in the field of education. Participants learned about various styles of leadership and discussed the possibilities of applying leadership. During an expedition over a mountain ridge with high-rope obstacles, they had to solve problems related to group dynamics and communication. The first test of acquired knowledge was the preparation of a complex community project, where they could apply learned skills
The courses took place in Central Europe. The students visited the Slovak towns of Bratislava and Martin, attended an expedition in the mountains of Malá Fatra, visited the Czech Republic (Prague), Krakow, Auschwitz – Birkenau and Wieliczka in Poland.
Our partner organization Outward Bound Slovakia significantly contributed to the development and implementation of both World Camps. Instructors from OB organized a 3-day expedition in the mountains of Malá Fatra for the participants.
