ORGANIZATION

January, 14-25  Kraków and Poznań
January 28- February 8  Warszawa and Wrocław
February, 11-21 Gdańsk, Lublin and Łódź

They will be located in centres of Poznań, Łódź, Kraków, Lublin, Gdańsk, Wrocław and in Warsaw in the following districts: Centrum, Mokotów and Wola.

Because of the schedule, we ask you to collect children earliest at 4:45. We want to avoid situations, in which parents have to wait outside classrooms as children are engrossed in activities and don’t want to go out.

For safety reasons we ask you to give us such information in writing the day before or in the morning when bringing the child. The child can be collected only upon presentation of ID with a photograph.

Please, take shoes for change and clothes if there is such a need. We provide drinks, food and all necessary stationery.

The main counselor has a mobile phone, which the child can use if necessary. You can also call the main counselor. We ask you not to give mobile phones as we want children to experience “old school” activities – our mission is to show the world, in which you can play board games, read books and draw on a sheet of paper – not on a screen. Using smartphones or tablets will distract children’s attention. We don’t take responsibility for damages or loss of a device.

ACTIVITIES

Activities are dedicated for children aged 6 to 10.

Every day we organize sport activities, if weather allows us we prefer to spend time outdoors. What is more, children enjoy fun and team building activities.

Every day a Mysterious Magical Guest (an expert) visits our day camp and conducts workshops on such disciplines as diplomatic protocol, chemical experiments, public speaking, acting, cooking, astronomy, memo techniques, sign language and many more.

Groups consists of 15 – 30 children, depending on location and class rooms.

On the very first day of a camp you will get a schedule. We always do our best to make it various and interesting. There are always artistic, sport, linguistic, humanistic and scientific activities. Because of a big number of teachers and their many professional activities, we cannot present the schedule in advance.

More than 8 thousand children have already attended our day camps and courses.

Please, give your child a cap, which will protect them from sunlight. When it’s hot outside, we go out only when sunlight is not intensive, or conduct activities at a gym. On your request, we can spread protective cream on your child’s skin, if you provide us with it. Because of allergies and parents’ various preferences, we do not use our cream.

We organize camps for children aged 6-10. All children are in the same group, therefore, they have a chance to function in a diversified environment. At school children learn contents in accordance with their psychophysical development: pupils have to master a set of hard skills like e.g. reading, writing, multiplication or division. Activities at our camp are dedicated to all age groups and shall inspire children. According to Montessori education older people learn responsibility and take care of other younger children, while smaller ones learn through observation of their older friends e.g. how they deal with problems. They can spend time with people of different age. We always do our best to make groups of more than 15 children, thanks to which a child has a better chance to find a friend.

Our lessons shall inspire a child to discover the subject themselves. Of course they will not know the influence of monetary policy in oligopoly or what Cobb-Douglas function is, but they will learn that parents have to work in order to earn money and then buy something for their children. We teach about the influence of advertisements, why it is worth to save money, etc. Lessons are interactive and children can learn through play. We also introduce subjects which at first glance seem not to be dedicated for children: law, public speaking, medicine, etc. We receive positive opinions from parents, whose children attended our workshops.

Sport activities are conducted outside, both in winter and summer. Therefore, we ask you to prepare shoes for change and clothes suitable for temperature.

Yes, each camp is registered, which guarantees that all due security procedures will be controlled by the competent authority.

MEALS

Certainly. Please, provide us with all necessary information. On your request we will prepare a special MENU without allergens.

We provide full catering – second breakfast, lunch and afternoon meal. Because of different tastes, we let children choose one lunch set from two. Before the beginning of the camp we ask you to inform us about your child’s food preferences. We provide hot and cold drinks, and snacks.
