We prepared an opportunity study of the possibilities of organizational activities in organization of the activities of the currently abandoned children's camp "Vėtrungė" in Kintai. In this study, we aimed to understand the experiences of children’s camp organizers and campers to respond possible infrastructural needs and to develop a management model. We also took into account the mega trends of society development, emerging challenges and needs, as well as the specifics of the camp managing institution - the vocational school and the possible unique contribution to the organization of activities. We provided guidelines for the development of the camp, a vision for the camp, and three management options with their strengths and weaknesses.
During the study, we conducted a qualitative study - semi-structured interviews with camp organizers and campers. We also analyzed the documents regulating the activities of the camps, organized meetings and workshops with different stakeholder groups: Šilutė City Municipality, Šilutė Vocational Training Center and the Kintai community. We also examined foreign examples and got a lot of inspiration from Danish Folk schools model.
The project was funded by the Public Institution Šilutė Vocational Training Center.
