In the picturesque part of the Lviv region, on a farm, an eco-camp has been operating for three years. Numerous master classes and regular contact with animals is how children spend their summer away from “urban jungles,” writes Agro-Center.
The camp is located in the Drohobych district, the village of Letnya. The camp is aimed at eco-development of children.
“Usually there are only 12-14 children. Their day is full of events from morning until evening, and only in the afternoon kids have two hours of free time,”
– says Kristina Matkivska, organizer of the “Letnya Camp”.
The “Merinos-Zakhid” farm, where the camp is located, positions itself as a breeding farm. Here they breed sheep, and since recently, goats of the leading European breeds. There is a total of almost 3,000 heads of stock of three breeds of sheep on the farm: Merinolandschafe, Suffolk, Tiroler Bergschaf.
During their stay on the farm, children regularly contact with the animals:
“Every day, in the morning, kids take the sheep to the pasture and bring them back in the evening. They like animals very much,”
– says Kristina.
The organizers hold numerous master classes for little eco-camp participants. Children try to make clay pots, learn to sort garbage, plant radish, basil, mint and other plants, which they can take home at the end of their stay, learn martial arts, go on excursions and hike.
A 10-day long stay at the camp will cost a child’s parents 7800 hryvnias, 14-day long stay – 9800 hryvnias.
