Rest assured, children will be divided into groups of a minimum of 8 and a maximum of 15 students per class. Adults will not be divided into groups and can choose to follow the schedule or take time for themselves.

Depending on the number of children, they might be divided precisely (by grade) or per age group (for example, 5-8 y.o.).

On Friday, the activities are without any divisions, but on Saturday Morning, after Breakfast, Teen Volunteers will pick their groups, do some introduction activities, and take responsibility for delivering their groups from one lesson to another, helping the teacher, and entering kids in between the activities. The same will happen on Sunday morning, after breakfast.

The activities for children included, but were not limited to, various STEM classes, parties, arts & crafts, and outdoor challenges. The pool is open until 6 on Friday (no Lifeguards), from 10 to 6 on Saturday (possible Teen certified lifeguard), and on Sunday, until 11:45 am (possible lifeguard). Consider the pool like in any hotel – where you have to take an eye on your kids and you’re the one responsible for them. Lake is only accessible if a child is accompanied by a parent. There are boats available on the lake, but they are not included in our program. You’re welcome to rent one on your own. The gym is available for common use.

The activities for adults included possible lections, gatherings, games, arts & crafts activities, Hikes, Pool, Lake access, GYM, Mobile Sauna (Saturday only), Spa Services (Saturday only), etc., etc.
