Our Summer Youth Camp Chelmos welcomes teens, who want to live unique and exciting experiences. On our camp in Chelmos, kids enjoy supreme hospitality and days full of adventure and action.

Chelmos, with its unique natural environment, rich history, and tradition, is ideal for authentic and meaningful contact with nature and the cultural heritage of our country. We will hike on the wonderful mountainous trails of Chelmos and the renowned Vouraikos Gorge, we will climb, paddle on our canoes along the beautiful water routes of lake Tsivlou, raft in Loussios and so much more!

Our warm and luxurious guesthouse will offer the kids the best possible accommodation. Every day, they will enjoy well-cooked and balanced meals prepared with great care using our homegrown local products!

While on our farm, kids will have the chance to witness the daily routines followed on the farm. They will also get to participate in various farm activities, enriching their knowledge and experiences. Through their active participation, they will learn the principles of sustainable farming first hand.

At nights, we get the opportunity to gaze the starry sky. We all gather together and share stories and experiences to strengthen the bonds of friendship. We play and we have a lot of fun!

A significant part of our program is the visit of an experienced mountain guide! Children discuss with him about his experiences and they learn all about the "secrets" of the mountains!

Day by day program is indicative/the order of activities is subject to change depending on group dynamics and weather.

All our activities are specially designed for children and are operated with trained guides following all safety rules!
