English Summer/Winter Camp Volunteers
On September 30th in Loopy’s World in Gdańśk we organized post camp meeting especially for the children, who participated in 11th edition of English Summer Camp, but also invited all people who were engaged in realization of this project. 3-hours meeting was a great opportunity to meet and great fun provided by Loopy’s World.
Besides, Ada Grzenkowicz, Project Manager of ESC 2014 presented short summary of the camp, which you can see on our YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yIIQtW283kE Great thank you to the owners and employees of Loopy’s World in Gdańsk, who for the third time guested us, shared with kids the centre and organized for them treat. To proof, that it was a wonderful afternoon we attach a photo from that event.
After some complications involved in finding a proper place for the first aid training, it was held in the open air on a pitch adjacent to the guest house where the kids were staying, and later under the umbrellas nearby. Children were divided into two groups, the older and the younger one. We started from an easygoing chitchat about the First Aid. As it turned out, the children were more or less acquainted with the first aid procedures, some of them showing a surprisingly good level both of theoretical and practical knowledge in the first aid area. Following that, we presented children with some theory related to the cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and related emergency procedures, as well as with the theory about the recovery position. After the theoretical introduction, we started the practical part of our training. Gradually we managed to involve most of the children in practicing the procedures presented earlier. Although some of the older children were not very eager to participate actively, they did show some interest in the activities. Both training manikins and practicing the procedures were great fun for the children and served well for acquiring or improving the knowledge and skills related to CPR. Every child had an opportunity to perform the full CPR procedure, practice placing a patient in the recovery position, and, what is very important, to call the emergency medical services in a right manner.
The second group consisted of younger children, so we took a more relaxed approach of learning through play. Unfortunately, it started to rain and we had to move our group under umbrellas where the space was scarce. That resulted in a bit of a hullabaloo. In spite of these energetic sparks all around (read: kids), we managed to cover all the points from our agenda.
To sum up, the children reacted very enthusiastically to our training, which was extremely satisfying. We hope that they liked the training and most importantly, that they will remember about the life-saving procedures in situations that will require quick actions to save somebody’s life.
On 4th of August 2014 in Żelistrzewo (district Puck) according to English Summer Camp, under the supervision of professional Coerver Coaching methodology trainers, took place football training.
35 children from various orphanages from Gdansk area attended the event. In plain summer weather the children had a chance to enjoy a variety of games with ball, individual and team activities, which put a smile on their faces for the entire day. At the end of the meeting each child received a T-shirt with the logo of Jeppesen as a keepsake and diploma with individual names for each child.
