The “Challenge Camp” Program
The “Challenge Camp” Program is a six-day camping program for people with motion difficulties.
NLI realizes the “Challenge Camp” Program in 2015.
The goal of the program is to prompt disabled people towards self-recognition and self-development by organizing events that are unusual for people having motion problems and thus promoting their physical and spiritual abilities. The program has set an objective to help people having motion problems discover their own actual potential and increase their self-esteem, as well as improve their communication with society.
The program acts in two main directions – physical/social and spiritual. It provides means to motivate people having motion problems to have an active physical lifestyle through a 6-day active camp program with the help of volunteer assistants involved in it; as well as to improve their self-esteem via spiritual conversation-discussions and to give the opportunity to discover the colors of life from a spiritual perspective.
The Target group is considered to be people having motion problems over 18 years old.
Intended events and practiced methods are physical exercises, prayer, service of physiotherapist and psychologist (alternative), spiritual conversation-discussions, entertaining and sports games, ropeway, horse-riding, handwork, team game-tasks, and other events.
To make the program’s influence sustainable, NLI carries out follow-up in two ways: firstly, the program format allows to increase in the number of participants by giving the opportunity to some young people who attended the previous year’s program to be a part of the team assuming some responsibilities or realizing some personal initiatives. Secondly, the participants are invited to attend the “Perspective” Program.
