Our vision is to create a small beautiful society especially for children. Children are the leading characters and our daily duty is to guide them and help them discover their own path in life. A small society where we combine several sport activities, entertainment and education with main target to develop better individuals and foster an atmosphere of cooperation and friendship.
We strongly believe that the camp is not just a summer holidays: Our goal is to offer children days of joy in a beautiful natural environment. Through team work, games and the daily programme we have created a small, structured and organized society. While playing and having fun, children learn to: respect and accept diversity, believe in equality and to work in teams. Our programme aims to develop both body and spirit through sports, entertainment and education.
A group of close friends conceive the idea of starting a summer camp for children who live in Thessaloniki.
This is the first year the camp opens for guests. "Athlorama", the first section of bungalows, is fully operating with 8 bungalows, one swimming pool, a basketball court, volleyball court, trampolines and target shooting.
"Athlorama" section expands. It now has 28 bungalows and more sports activities are available.
"Panorama", another section for older children, is complete and ready to accommodate campers. Moreover, a football field, a horse riding ground, a tennis court and an art workshop are included in the facilities available.
We introduced English language and computer classes to our programme.
The second swimming pool is constructed.
Another section of bungalows is built suitable for children aged 5 to 9 years old.
Two more five-a-side football courts are added with floodlights for evening matches.
A new area for aerobics and a Tae-Kwon-Do hall are completed.
Handball courts are created and a second horse riding ground is available.
The biggest towers for extreme sports in any Greek summer camp are constructed and fully operational. Along with this, new areas for target shooting and archery are available.
This is the year that changed the history of the summer camp. By now the camp is more fully equipped than ever before, hosting all athletic installations.
Winter time 2007
Skouras family club is created. It is a club for all the people working for the camp and aims to fulfill one of the biggest needs in any successful organization: to keep all staff members in close contact throughout the year.
The new playground at "Pefkorama" greatly upgrades the sports programme.
We upgraded the basketball and volleyball court with special tartan.
Winter time 2009
The volunteering actions of the camp started to grow. We participated in the WORLD TRACK & FIELD CHAMPIONSHIP FINALS (IAAF 2009). Also we participated in the International Marathon “Alexander the Great”, and many other events in Thessaloniki.
New sports have been added to the programme. Roller Skates and Yoga while we developed special facilities to support this action.
Winter time 2010
Our camp participates in the Roller ski World cup with its volunteers. Moreover, our camp's chief together with a small group of volunteers participated in the Athens Clasical Marathon. We were also selected by the Organising Committee of the ATHENS SPECIAL OLYMPICS to host international athletes.
Parkour is added to our sports activities. Moreover we rebuild the two swimming pools.
We rebuilt part of our facilities which now consist of several bungalows with a bathroom included.
A new section of bungalows - Kentrorama is created. We rebuilt the restaurant and the medical centre. A new dance hall is created.
However all the above are not the main reason we differ.
Our difference lays in our strong belief, that we have been given the privilege to take care, to raise and to love your children and that by making them better individuals and teaching them to live with values such as respect, honesty, trust and love for each other, we make a contribution to a better society and a better future.
