GetAwayDays provide young people from difficult upbringing an opportunity to leave their daily routine behind for a few days. They experience a week full of challenges, but also a week full of new impressions and a sense of personal achievement. We want GetAwayDays to become a milestone in the lives of the participants!
Assisted by our qualified staff, young people are lead into a challenging environment that expands their boundaries. This includes outdoor activities like canyoning, rock climbing, scaling mountains, experience-based learning games, creative activities and times of reflection. Participants face their own emotions, discover talents, learn how use their gifts while benefiting from the talents of others. Participants grow personally, and learn that it is worth it to ‘’hang on’’ and that they can indeed overcome challenges.
Young people learn to take responsibility for their decisions during camp fire, while cooking together, or hiking up a mountain peak. They learn the effects their decisions have upon their own lives and on those within their group. Through professional guidance and mentoring we promote social commitment, and we encourage the participants in building trust in themselves while building others up. They expand their social competencies and learn to value mutual respect and appreciation.
Thinking about life
We help our participants reflect on their experiences and encourage them to think constructively about their own lives. The program is enhanced by devotionals about relevant life issues. The values of Christian culture, science, and personal experience serve as the basis for reflection.
