9-12 year-old pupils
Two-week summer camps
The summer camps take place in 40 communities throughout the island. They are organised in partnership with the local authorities according to the needs of each community.
The aim of the programme is to disseminate the Olympic values to help combat the increase in violence among young people.
The camps last for two weeks, and are set up in partnership with the Youth Development Division of the Ministry of Education. They host 9-12 year-old children and are held in 40 local communities.
The teaching of Olympism is integrated into the activities organised throughout the summer camps. Specific prior training is available to the directors and assistant directors. Workshops are offered to the volunteers who will bring their support on a district level.
There are various stages in the implementation of the summer camps:
The two pillars of olympism; sport and culture are key elements in the stride to heighten the capabilities of and harmonize body, mind and spirit. We can achieve this in our youth if we continue to construct and execute programs with this in mind.
