Summer Camps

Our camps are organized on an experience basis, organized thematically around a variety of arts (theater, fine art and film). It is important to have time for free play and relaxation at the end of the school year after the 4-5 therapeutic hours per day. When entering the camps preference will be given to those children who already have been to our facility, or to the Napraforgó Ház (Sunflower House) or come with a recommendation by the experts of our professional community.

Those who have not been to Murmo yet have to attend a first interview (parents and children). If a group is made up of new children, a test afternoon will take place 2-3 weeks before the camp. This is needed to make camp leaders more tailored to the special needs of children.

We also put great emphasis on the completion of the camp; we organize a joint closure for the families, where parents are siblings are invited too. In individual justified cases, this can be varied. On the last day of the camp, we will be holding consultations in the afternoon, where we will give feedback on the children and reflect on our further suggestions.
