About camp

 

We are excited to announce that the thirteenth international camp for blind and visually impaired children, The Miracle of Cognition, will take place 24th-29th of June 2024!

The camp will take place on a campsite Pasaka, address Vydūno str. 2, Kukuliškiai, Klaipėda district. The campsite is located near Klaipėda‘s Giruliai beach, and is surrounded by the fragrant pine forest. The sea is only twenty minutes away on foot through the forest, where it’s always calm, full of fresh air, with the surroundings adapted to the needs of campers.

The theme of this year’s camp is the Year of Lighthouses in Klaipėda. The programme involves many educational activities, acquaintance with the history of Klaipėda region, its lighthouses.
During our time in the camp, we will visit the History Museum of Lithuania Minor, on Ventė Cape. The campers will have an opportunity to hear African drums, to meet the opera’s prima donna Nomeda Kazlaus, to meet the students of Mažeikiai M. Račkauskas gymnasium and see the board game they have created, to participate in the labs of scientific experiments, music, creative workshops, to take part in sport contests and games. During the trip to Ventė Cape, they will learn about the history of the local lighthouse, visit Virginijus Skirkevičius homestead, taste herbal tea. During the trip to Melnaragė lighthouse, its history will be presented by journalist and local historian Denisas Nikitenka. Designer and the author of a fashion catalogue for the blind Rugilė Gumuliauskaitė and social activists Irma Jokštytė-Stanevičienė and Aistė Krušinskaitė will share their success stories.

Like every year, various creative workshops, orientation hike, sports and athletics contest, picnics by the sea, and, of course, fun discos will await the campers. The final chord is foreseen to be in Klaipėda Drama Theatre, where children can “try out” the professional stage. Other pleasant surprises are also awaiting little campers.

We are going to meet friends from Ukraine, Latvia, Estonia again.
We guarantee that all week’s programme of the camp will be full of the best emotions, interesting meetings, sports and creative activities and entertainment!
