The experience

Being temporarily removed from your “normal life” you can concentrate on new projects, shape ideas, broaden horizons collaboratively. We are convinced that this will be a life-changing experience, within a team of young and passionate entrepreneurs, determined to create a better future. The structure of the workshops and the camp has the main objective of learning through this experience, but also to encourage the creative process of each of you, with discussions around the campfire, movie nights and debate, rich meals with local products, all for maximum enjoyment our time together.
The campground is located three blocks from the construction site. There will be dry ground in the bathrooms, and a space for meals and rest. After lunch we will pause so you can rest. During the 6 days you will also have time to enjoy the surroundings, go for a walk or do a trek, yoga / meditation, reading, etc.
