Vacation in Novi Vinodolski

On Saturday, July 28, seventeen youngsters from both SOS Youth Facilities in Osijek and their four counselors departed for a vacation in Novi Vinodolski, to spend their 10-day vacation at the Bjelovar Red Cross resort.

Just like every year, youngsters from the YF were joined by six eighth-graders from the SOS Children's Village Ladimirevci who will become their housemates this autumn. In addition to indispensable daily activities of swimming, sunbathing, driving on paddleboats and playing catch in the shallows, youngsters use their time at the seaside to socialize and make new friends.
 

For example, in previous years they had the opportunity to meet young people from other countries, like Bosnia, Italy and Russia. They found they had many things in common and had no difficulty sharing their experiences. During this vacation, we celebrated the 18th birthday of our Damir Halilović. To mark Damir’s coming of age, we decided to throw a surprise party for him. We organized a real beach party, complete with cake, candles and guitars. After the party, we all went to a club, where our youngsters got to show off their dancing skills.
Before the end of the vacation, we are planning on taking a boat tour, sightseeing around the town and having fun playing board games in the evenings.
