Lapland Outdoor Education Camp

A summer camp based on the modes of adventure education is made for both physical and mental well-being. The positive experiences and reflection support growth and learning. An encouraging camp for physical effort, finding boundaries, success and emotional expression helps campers communicate and solve problems. The camp is situated in Syöte National Park area in Northern Finland.

The program includes different kinds of tasks: water, rope and group activities, leadership and cooking duties and small-scale first aid activities outdoors. First aid activities emphasize decision-making ability and helping each other in a special situation. Everyone has their own important role in the group. The adventure is deconstructed by means of drama. Students will also learn lots of facts about Finnish history, culture and nature.

Campers can enjoy the Finnish sauna during the camp. A celebration meal is served before home journey and the campers will get a diploma and a small local gift.

Several studies show that spending time in the nature will reduce stress, calm you down and lower blood pressure. A stress-free atmosphere improves learning.

Program of the camp can be done in cooperation with teachers or instructors.
