Young people also had the opportunity to enjoy an excellent adrenaline park located near the waterfall, a zip line for children, swimming, fashion shows and jumping where the most creative were awarded, and within the camp they had a tour of Jajce and its natural and cultural monuments, and a boat ride on Lake Pliva.
“By gathering children and youth of this camp, we wanted to point out that our ethnic and national diversity is not and should not be a stumbling block and separation, but a wealth that we need to nurture, respect, learn from each other and build a more promising future together. The children are unspoiled in each other and they see what they need to see – dear friends with whom they learn, train, play and love together “- said the manager of COD Jajce Samir Agić.
