Multisport camp

This type of multisport activity is structured as camps.
There are 2 types of camps that can be organized: multisport camp and thematical camp with multisport sessions.

The camps belong to traditional types of the daily camps with the specialized emphasize on the multisport. The camp with multisport sessions can be organized as a response to the lack of physical education in the schools and focus on sport activities supporting socialisation.

This activity can bring an innovative approach to the camps:

  • Multisport – to plan and implement activity covering the broad spectrum of the sport and focus on the participants’ competence;
  • Thematical with multisport – to balance the thematical activity with multisport, to balance educational and creative activities with the outdoor and indoor physical activity.

Both types of camps aim at adopting the sport as a joyful routine in their life and free time.

Period: Summer
Hours: 40 hours
Participants: between 30 and 60
Sports that can be covered: athletics, dance, ball sports, Zumba, yoga, sport games, archery.

Success or innovation factors

  • Fusion of non-formal educational activities with different sports;
  • Added value brought by a youth worker with a specialisation in some sports;
  • Diversity of sports;
  • Rich spectrum of sports;
  • Acquisition of different competences;
  • Synchronized team (a combination of different expertise and practical experience);
  • Experience of non-formal educational camps;
  • Non-formal education as a objective in the multisport approach.

Methodological approach

The methodology is based on a format of daily camps organized during working days from 7:30 till 16:30. The methodology is based on non-formal education where sport is a tool used for competence development and also as a physical activity.
The multisport approach plays an important role in the methodology as it covers different elements (information, structure, technique, competence).
In the methodology of the camps the multisport approach brings cooperation and mutual support, motivation and joy.

Potential risks

  • Expertise of the team;
  • Time management to introduce and practice the sport;
  • Weather conditions;
  • Organisation of the group as to make the activity accessible and at the same time interesting and challenging for each participant (number of participants, age, skills).

Replicability / Opportunity for future use

  • Flexible format of the activity with different adjustments;
  • Accessibility and variety of sports;
  • Combination of non-formal education and known sports, introduction and practice of marginal sports;
  • Possible link to follow-up activities with the focus on “multisport culture”.


Some preparatory activities that can be considered:

  • Meeting of the team in order to introduce the concept;
  • Meetings to develop the concept and prepare activities;
