Alpinis Outdoor Challenge Trainig

A highlight of this time of the year is training for the summer camps. Earlier in April Emil Toader took part in the Christian Camping International Conference (CCI Romania), with leaders from many Christian camps in Romania. At CCI Emil led a workshop on the purpose and value of using outdoor adventure camping with youth. After Easter, on April 20-23rd, we had an extended weekend of training at Alpinis with leaders from Timisoara, Bucharest, Deva and Sibiu. We focused on the Counselling and Content aspects of the AOC camps, covering topics such as: the heart of guiding, group dynamics, conflict resolution, how to set up and lead quiet times and discussions, experiential learning, guiding as a lifestyle, and more. We had lots of snow on the ground in spite of the late spring dates. Later in June we will follow this up with a trail training.
