Memories from previous offline editions of GROW Summer Camp

Memories from GROW Summer Camp 2018

Grow Summer Camp 2018 challenged the teens with a new set of topics: emotional intelligence, mindfulness, critical thinking, community building, bullying. The camp took place “deep in the forest” at Casa Bella in Campulung Muscel, where 67 teenagers met and lived together for 6 days.

Each day is formed of workshops and strategy games where skills such as problem-solving, decision making, strategic thinking, teamwork and public speaking are gained.
