Program details
Get ready to dive into some big questions that really matter today: how do we connect with our local environment while also embracing a global perspective?

Campers will get hands-on with the rich crafts and arts of the Baltic countries, discovering the amazing stories and histories of nearby places. We’ll tune into the rhythms of the sea, sky, and land, and bring these natural elements into our creative projects. Technology will be a big part of our journey, helping us create works in music, cinema, art, and even cooking that everyone can appreciate. We’ll be exploring how unique local cultures fit into the bigger international picture, focusing on open borders, ongoing dialogue, and the blending of knowledge, technologies, ideas, and visual images.

Another key part of this shift is connecting thought and action. How do we think? How do we make decisions? How does nature guide us? We’ll tackle these questions in our science lab with biology and chemistry experiments, visualisations, and research. We’ll also dive into engineering and robotics, seeing how tech and creativity can solve problems and build a better future.

In the Music Making & Voice Development studio, campers will mix local sounds with global influences to create unique musical pieces. The Ethic Fashion & Creativity studio will have them designing cool clothing that’s sustainable and culturally inspired. We’re also big on sustainability and ethical practices, encouraging campers to think about their impact on the world.

Right now, there's a huge trend in looking for roots and uniqueness. People are finding joy and inspiration in connecting with their heritage, searching for fresh ideas, energy, and insights. Creativity needs fertile ground, and it’s all around us in the culture and history of places, peoples, cities, and countries. We believe that nurturing creativity is key for personal growth, helping our campers excel in science, technology, humanities, arts, business, and entrepreneurship. That's why we're exploring this rich source of inspiration in this shift.
