Summer camp “Challenge 5”, 2012. “Wings for Wheels”.

In the beginning of July we had a rest in the summer camp in Raiskums. Despite this summer is not so warm, the week spent in the summer camp remembers by warm and summer weather.

In the beginning of July we had a rest in the summer camp in Raiskums. Despite this summer is not so warm, the week spent in the summer camp remembers by warm and summer weather. The weather was just a background, but the content was very fertile and extremely interesting. Our great thanks for this to the organisators of the camp Evelin and Kaspar Apinis, Ailite Kuka.

Having rest always turns out well, when it is a fertile and interesting event. This year it was full of such events. Very interesting and informative lectures matched with active games, art working and funny quizzes. There was plenty of work for the physiotherapists, who organized the individual procedures during the camp time.

As always there was much music, and songs by the performance of  Raily from Norway. But the concert of the chorus “Rīgas Gospe” was so marvelous. They came to visit us. And even after the end of the concert…the songs of our guests and participants of the camp were heard for a long of time. The atmosphere was so friendly and warm.

The day spent at the horse-sport depot “R&R SPORTA ZIRGI” we will remember for a long of time. The communication with the animals always is pleasant event, but the communication with horses it is the best pleasure. Some of us had tried horse riding themselves. The coach Rufina Jurasha watched the riders carefully and people could forget about their wheelchairs.

And of course the biggest treasure of the camp was the communication of friends in informal atmosphere, surrounded by the beautiful nature and fresh air, these songs and poems at the bonfire, and this confidence, that you are surrounded by friends.
