  • About the initiative:

Observatoriya za idei 2D and YMCA-Gabrovo are organizing a summer TENT camp at our base near Gabrovo. The camp participants will be children from Gabrovo between 10 and 15 years of age. Within 4 days children and adults will communicate on future-related topics in a nice surrounding in the beautiful Balkan nature, away from city noise.

Specialists of various fields will be joining the activities and free-style conversations; such communication will be helpful for both sides.

Our ambition is for this initiative to be held annually, inviting children and specialists not only from other Bulgarian cities but also from places abroad.

Because of this idea, our base near Gabrovo will become a shared space for creativity, communication and work.
