Each programme offers:

  • Creative classes with educators for both the children and their parents

  • Sports and active games

  • Special parents’ programme

  • Walks around Dilijan and the surrounding nature-sanctuary

  • Unique tours around Armenia

  • Master-classes

  • Challenging quests and games of skill
