Education Through Sport
International Youth Camp “Education Through Sport”
The camp was held from the 4th to the 13th of July 2004 in Saudarkrokur – Iceland. The camp provided many learning opportunities for 38 young people from 22 European countries. The main topic of the International Youth Camp was ‘Education through Sport’ - i.e. to demonstrate to participants that sport is an excellent educational tool. The objectives included involving the participants in an educational process through different sport games and workshops, showing them the values inherent in sports - and demonstrating how to implement those values in an educational process.
The camp was prepared by a team of 8 voluntary youth leaders from the ISCA youth network, guided by a professional trainer.
