We were separated to three teams. During the camp we had different challenges, given to us by Father Fura. In our case he was the dressed Czech volunteer Jaroslav Růžička. During the games, the teams were winning keys for a chest with treasure. AAt the end, one of the teams had more keys than the others and managed to unlock the chest. The treasure was chocolates, candies and other interesting things for all of us, but most for the winner team.
We also have the possibility to go to the swimming pool in the near town of Levski and to the Danube river.
