Miracle of Cognition 2023
We are glad to announce that the 12th Miracle of Cognition camp for visually impaired children will take place on June 19-25. The camp will be held at the student recreation camp Raganė, at Monciškės st. 28A, Palanga, Monciškės. The camp is located on the seashore between Palanga and Šventoji. About 10-15 minutes’ walk to the sea, clean dunes, and a pine forest nearby.
The theme of this year`s Miracle of Cognition camp is "Klaipėda region in the labyrinths of history", dedicated to the 100th anniversary of Klaipėda region`s annexation to Lithuania. Therefore, there will be many educational activities introducing the history, household, crafts, and old games of the Klaipėda region. And to learn how the revolt of January 15, 1923 happened, we will hold a screening of the film Blizzard near Mēmelis.
During the camp, we will visit the Maritime Museum, the Klaipėda Castle Museum, the Palanga Amber Museum, take a walk around the Palanga Fairytale Park, and go up the observation wheel.
Creative workshops, an orientation hike, a friendship sprint, picnics by the sea and, of course, fun discos await the campers.
We are going to meet with friends from Ukraine, Latvia, and Estonia again.
We guarantee that the entire camp week will be filled with the best emotions, interesting meetings, sporting and creative activities and entertainment!
We are looking forward for you in the Miracle of Cognition 2023 camp!
