Landlords of Skulte 2015

This year, the camp of “Palīdzē” Youth Club was organized for the fifth year atSkulte Manor. The camp will be attended by children from foster families, families at social risk, large families and special schools.

In total, around 20 members gathered in Riga from all over Latvia early in the morning to go to Skulte. The camp program was designed taking into account the fact that the participants will be of different ages and they will have different abilities of getting involved. However, as in all of our events, the program was carefully planned and the participants acquired new useful skills and knowledge through non-formal education methods.


The camp was visited by many guests who presented the participants with a variety of interesting things and activities – dish painting taught by artist Inga, henna drawing masterclass together with a photographer – artist Svetlana from Moscow, psychology games on recognition of emotions together with our long-time friend – psychologist Marija Ābeltiņa. On one of the camp days, we were visited by singer Liene Šomase, who inspired the youth for new achievements and challenges with her positive example. One of the most exciting activities was the visit of the improvisational theatre „Spiediens” (Pressure), during which the youth created improvisational games together with the improvisers.


One evening at the camp was dedicated to sports. After warming up by weeding a path, the youth waited for the feature of the evening – sports track with Leno Bramanis – with excitement.


We also visited the Gutman’s cave, Krimulda Manor and Sigulda city, where photographer Nora Krevņeva pleased us with a unique “photo session”!

Active adventure in nature. Pāvilosta II

We enjoyed the hospitality of Pāvilosta a lot, so in August, concluding the season of summer activities, we decided to go on an exciting journey back to this quiet and picturesque town on the coast of the Baltic Sea together with another group of children and young people.

The adventure of Pāvilosta took place on three beautiful, sunny summer days at the beach. 

The adventure included numerous activities related to water sports, and the youth could not wait to start the adventure. At the end of the day full of sports activities, the participants were treated to smoked fish and taught the secrets of fishing and smoking of fish by Pāvilosta fisherman Dzintars Zamarītis. The active evening was concluded with a creative master class led by artist Gundega, who taught how to make dream catchers.


During our adventure, we had many pleasant surprises, and one of them was an educational tour led by Vaira Kārkliņa, who taught us about using wild plants in the diet, and a tasting of various delicacies made from wild plants.
