GROW Summer Camp 2016
Between 26-31 August 2016, at Şăulia Camp from Mureş, GROW Summer Camp brought together again all the fantastic former GROW participants, along with Romanian and International trainers, to transform them into #GameChangers!
What is so special about this experience?
GROW Summer Camp 2016 gathered 5 experimented and passionate Romanian trainers from Scoala de Valori and 5 former GROW trainers from Armenia, Brazil, Bulgaria, Egypt and Greece, with whom we enjoyed the multicultural atmosphere, in GROW style. We added a little nature, some breathtaking landscapes and the warmth of summer days. The topping consisted of 103 enthusiastic GROW ambassadors and former participants from 15 cities, who went through 6 days of learning, development, change, fun and relaxation. And, may we add, constant “aha” moments.
*11 teenagers with a special financial situation received grants and participated for free in GROW Summer Camp. The free places were supported from the funds collected at Femei pe Matasari and Swimathon events, thanks to the generous donators and swimmers. Many thanks for your help!
6 days of learning and continuous discovery throughp
Day 2:Guided by the trainers, the young participants embarked on the road of self-discovery and attended some workshops on self-awareness, personal values and decision-making. Then, they stepped to the next level, by connecting to the reality of our country and enjoying the presence of some #GameChangers during World Cafe.
Day 3: In the third day of GROW Summer Camp, we researched how the world is doing and how is the current reality influencing the future, OUR future. We uncovered the characteristics of a #GameChanger and envisioned GROW bigger, better, stronger.
Day 4: This day was all about practicing the skills of a real #GameChanger and flex the muscles outdoor with CUBE Training‘s “Escape the Island” game. Building actual boats and racing on the lake was a truly challenging experience. In the evening, the teams designed their own games that will be revealed and put in practice in their cities.
Day 5: The teenagers practiced various change management skills, from “Thinking like a Futurist” to “Influencing & Charisma” and draw the future they envision for themselves.
Day 6: The Closing Ceremony in GROW Summer Camp was pictured as a train station. All the #GameChangers are ready now to play the game by their own rules and we cannot wait to see the results! Destination? The World!
