We get it. Making decisions about where and how to spend a holiday can be challenging for parents. The Young Dragons would be delighted to assist you in that. In addition to weekly camps in and around Ljubljana, the holiday programme includes leisure trips throughout Slovenia and abroad, holiday schools, festivals, and other events for life-changing experiences. The programme is made public at least three weeks ahead, and registration for individual activities is done online.

Holiday camps

Activities that take place during the school holidays for one week and include unforgettable experiences, new friendships, fleeting young love, and learning new skills.

Young Dragons in Shelter

We work to educate young people about the issue of abandoned animals, the right way to raise and care for dogs and cats, and responsible pet ownership from a variety of perspectives.

The one-week camp exposes participants to a wide range of animal relations through various activities like making toys for cats, learning about myths and misconceptions about black animals, learning about the careers of an animal caretaker and a veterinarian, and visiting a police dog unit. The camp experience includes sports and creative activities, as well as the preparation of wholesome meals. And if the parents behave well, we invite them to the shelter following the camp so that the children can show them around and teach them what they learned.

The shared knowledge and abilities of the Young Dragons and the Shelter Ljubljana in the areas of animal care and responsible ownership are a priceless investment in the future.

Mepi Camp

A holiday activity that we have been organising in collaboration with the GAHA for many years. Through camping activities, young people participate in a seven-day adventure programme where they learn how to survive in nature away from technology and outside of their comfort zone. Young people at the adventure camp must face challenges like pitching tents, cooking meals over the magnificent campfire, playing orientation games, and hiking. Swimming is also included!

Young Dragons successfully collaborated with the GAHA association for the thirteenth time in 2022! The activities of the adventure camp vary from year to year, and the camp’s goal is to re-establish lost contact with nature and to take a break from the digital content that shapes our daily lives. It promotes informal socialisation through various teambuilding activities, which strengthens their self-image. The programme is designed for students in the last three grades of primary school and high school.

Holiday Adventures

All holiday adventures are scheduled to coincide with school holidays. We plan them with specific activities in mind for individual groups of children and adolescents aged 10 to 29, for whom holiday adventures are intended.

Winter Adventure
The Winter Adventure targets primary school children (10–14 years old) and high school children (15–18 years old) because it takes place during the winter holidays of primary and high schools.
It provides all-day excursions to and from Ljubljana for young people.

May Day Adventure
The May Day adventure includes a programme for primary school students (10–14 years old), high school students (15–18 years old), and students from other institutions (19–29 years old). During the May holidays, it offers all-day trips around Slovenia and/or abroad for younger groups, as well as holiday schools and courses for students as a training ground for developing various potentials and skills.

Summer Adventure
The Summer adventure is appropriate for all age groups, including primary school children (10–14 years old), high school children (15–18 years old), and students (19–29 years). During the summer holidays, there are one-day and multi-day excursions in Slovenia and abroad, as well as camps, summer schools, and outdoor festivals and events.

Autumn Adventure
The Autumn Adventure targets primary school children (10–14 years old) and high school children (15–18 years old) because it takes place during the autumn school holidays. It provides multi-day activities for young people in various locations throughout Ljubljana, as well as full-day excursions throughout Slovenia.

Dragon month
December is considered to be Dragon Month. Young Dragons participate in the activity by joining the festive mood of the city, and we also plan solidarity actions with a compassionate tone.
