PHILOSOPHY OF CAMPS:

We are FOR challenges, because it allows us to dare to do and achieve the target. In the very tense nowadays life rhythm it is important, at the beginning of life, teach to think positively, climb out of comfort zone, begin to perform and believe in self!

Therefore, we have created unprecedented camps in Latvia, where children and young people for a week live through the adventure reality show. Kukaburra is a secret land, only children and young people rules. They run the land, which has its own policies, laws, its own payment method - securities, land belonging ID cards, access to the \"Secret Base\", past stories book. Children and young people creates new work places, choosing what they want to do, creating their first business projects in “Creative Workshops” (e.g. pancake house, a fresh juice bar, precious stones workshop, development of camp magazine, order and security company \"Pranking\", etc.).

Four teams will be living in the camp - \"Burbarti\", \"Damriti\", \"Raji\", \"Mursaji\", each is different, and each has its own coat of arms, uniforms, flag, motto and leader, and has its own base. Every day a \"Big Race\" occurs, during which teams are fighting for points and self-retaining in top position, because every day the top team can choose something for their city, for example, treats, thing or attraction. Throughout the week, each team collects items, which are useful, when the next level has been reached, as well as in \"Grand Finale\" competition. Besides the daily \"Big Race\" every day small trials will take a place, which will be directed to different areas and topics (culture, sports, economy, nature and science, history, etc.).

Since this is a reality show, the entire week will be immortalized in a short movie, also video diaries and voting, where the best participant will be elected, will be filmed.
