Camp Objectives

Kids Adventure Camp by One Step Further is a life-changing opportunity for children to discover a brand new world that probably didn’t exist for them up until now. In today’s fast pace living, life in the city has become stressful for children and they feel the inherent need to return to nature through experiencing unforgettable outdoor activities.

  • To offer participating children time outdoors filled with intense emotions, away from technology and the fast pace of modern-day life, appreciating in the end how little we really need in order to be happy
  • To be introduced to and participate in fun outdoor sports activities that they’ll love forever, therefore naturally adopting an active way of life that will be natural to follow in their adult lives
  • To gain precious experiences and life lessons through this time spent as a team in the camp that will help develop their character, positive behavior and team spirit.
  • To share memorable experiences that will create unforgettable memories.

Our motto: everything for our kids. So that this experience is valuable and beneficial to them, and they leave us filled with memories, stronger, happier. Challenge yourself. Be happy.
