Scout training in the heart of the mountain

Partnering with The Cedar Foundation, the music festival “We Are Going to Maglizh” and the University Accident Rescue Team (UART), the team of “Trotoara” foundation organized one-day mountain training.

The children and young people without disabilities from our family houses in Kazanlak had the opportunity to spend an incredible day in the wild and learn more about wildlife life and the importance of protecting the environment.

During the training they acquired new practical skills with the help of interesting games and were taken through the most important steps for a safety trip in the wild nature, teaching them also how to protect the environment. They were introduced to the techniques of the mountain orientation and finding the right directions while trekking through the mountains. Our young adults learned how to work with a map and a compass. An interesting experience for them was the ignition of campfire and the preparation of food on the spot without water and electricity.

The aim of this experience was for the youngsters to realize that days in the nature and far from technology can be very exciting and interesting. What they learned during the day helped them gain new skills and would be of benefit to them in the future.

The Cedar Foundation would like to thank the team of “Trotoara” foundation for the incredible opportunity, as well as the other partners – the music festival “We Are Going to Maglizh” and the University Accident Rescue Team.
Here are some moments of the incredible scout experience!
