Summer 2018

Next to the activities like singing, dancing, games club, football, art time or tee-house, we organized special activities and two trips. I will tell you about them in this article.

  • Treasure hunt

We made 4 teams and they all had to find 5 places in the village and take a picture of the team at the same spot. At the end, we gave them a big snack and looked at the pictures.

  • Trip to the tunnel of Magnezitovce

We walked with the children to the tunnel and then through it. We had a picnic there and played some games.
