Treasure hunting with a compass and a map

Everyone knows that children in the SOS Children's Village Ladimirevci are active and dedicated hikers. And they use every hike as an opportunity to learn something new… while having fun at the same time, of course!

 Last weekend, children and young people from the SOS Children's Village Ladimirevci went on a hike with the Zanatlija Hiking Society from Osijek. A new hike is always a chance to see various historical landmarks and an opportunity to learn helpful new skills and gain new insights at the same time!

The topic of this hike was orientation in the forest using a compass and a map. To make the lesson more interesting, the instructors organized a treasure hunt. Motivated like this, our children successfully mastered the new and useful skill through play and fun-filled collaboration with their friends.

During our hike we saw Glagolitic inscriptions on the medieval church of St. Demetrius and the house where Dr Andrija Štampar was born. The scenic route took us to the mountain lodge Viljevo at 297 m above sea level and we also explored the Dilj mountain. The hike ended with another game and gathering around the campfire, as is the custom among all seasoned hikers!

We can safely say that our children successfully completed their latest hiking course!
