Between January 05-08, the Green Sun Association in partnership with the Sports Office of Târgu Secuiesc organized the day camp. Children from Kézdivásárhely, aged 7-10, participated in the camp. Photos taken during the event are available on the Facebook page of the association.
The Day Camp event is important because it offers a structured opportunity for children to grow. Kids because of the pandemic stay at home almost the whole day, with each environment contributing to their development. Day Camp, then, is a unique opportunity for growth, allowing kids to become independent and self-confident, while socializing and making new friends, and even learning new skills. The children have the chance to participate in various activities such as mind games, sports, dance, crafts and all kinds of non-formal activities. At the same time children had a short basketball activity with Lénárt Paula and an interesting football game with Halis Özcan and Medard Straua. The Day Camp event provides kids the tools to problem-solving, create, work in teams, and use critical thinking skills. According to our volunteer Márton Fanni-Biborka the activities were colorful, interesting, developing, attention-grabbing and she enjoyed that the kids were happy. The Day Camp is one very good, distraction-free option, and allows for a time for kids to kick the tires on a new interest and also it is an opportunity for volunteers to be members of an active and helpful event. All in all, the Day Camp event is a community where children come together to have fun while learning lifelong lessons and encourages respect and consideration for others.
