Educo Bulgaria believes
that deep within each human soul lies a sense of harmony, of belonging
to the world, and of responsibility toward future generations. We are
convinced that the survival of humanity lies in preserving and
developing these universal human values by recognizing our planet as our
common home and actively respecting and caring for one another and
nature. International Adventure School Educo Bulgaria was born during
one of the country's most difficult years in response to the need to
generate a positive model for the physical, spiritual, and personal
development of our children and young people. Latin for "to draw forth",
Educo draws forth self-awareness and a sense of purpose in individuals,
powerful tools for developing thoughtful citizens with strong leadership
Registered as a non-governmental association in November 1995, Educo
Bulgaria operates as an independent, non-religious, non-political,
We believe that it
is impossible to make a better world without ensuring the harmonious
development of individuals. The goal of Educo Bulgaria is to offer
challenging activities in a wild natural setting. The program is
designed to enable young people to discover their innate inner
resources and step beyond their perceived limits, to develop
initiative, and to build creative and independent personalities.
We work as well to strengthen their physical health and to help them
to understand their role and responsibilities in preserving the
natural environment. We emphasize the importance of recognizing our
global interdependence and interconnectedness by facilitating
intensive contacts and encouraging acts of solidarity and unity
among people from different nationalities, religions, and cultures.
The young people are taught respect and reverence for the natural
environment and are encouraged to find their own place in the world.
Our programs are designed as extended,
multi-day outdoor courses. The beautiful surroundings and favourable
geography of Bulgaria allow us to run courses year-round.

education. The methods and approaches used combine various technical
physical elements with specialized games, discussions, etc. The
