In addition to learning these sports we also walked all the way to Lviv and up to the border of three states - Poland - Slovakia - Ukraine, moreover we visited Užan National Park and the wooden church of the Virgin Mary located in the village Kostryna which is a masterpiece of folk architecture of the 18th century.

In the evening, after day full of adventures, we relaxed and had  an interesting program. Also the ukrainian animator also participated on the entertaining program for the students.

As part of the event was held and important event for the development of international partnership of sport youth, so called training for the trainers and organizers. Ukrainian and Slovak partners and trainers discussed together about the ideas related to the event and presented their vision and improvements for future events. Together they talked also about schooling and also compared the conception of training, teaching sports and physical training of both countries.

As this was our first sporting event, we tried every effort and we were meet expectations. We are very pleased with the enthusiasm and professionalism of the Ukrainian partner. Together we are for the students to prepare themselves really special experience.

An interesting fact was that in addition to Slovak students, and the vast majority of Ukrainian students experienced ski resort Krasiya for the first time. thats why are glad  that we could fulfill one of the goals of the project - exploring, active lifestyle and active being in nature for young people.

This camp was a benefit for all. For students who improved their skills in winter sports, they got to know the differences and common features of the Slovak and Ukrainian culture and relationships, discovered the beauty of ukrainian scenery. For the organizers and trainers who shared their experiences and knowledges, was benefitial the discussion about further prospects and possibilities of mutual cooperation.
