With summer starting we are hosting our first outdoor event of 2013 – our “Children`s Weekend” – on the first weekend in June (May 31st to July 2nd). We are dedicating theses two days in the Transylvanian Countryside to special kids activities and all parents are welcome to to join their kids or to simply sit back and relax. During this weekend all children will be under constant and qualified supervision of Romanian and English speaking staff, who strive to make this weekend a special experience for everybody! As food plays an important role in the Valea Verde, we will of course also be preparing special “kids food” – and ask the young generation to be involved whilst doing that!
Upon Arrival on Friday night, all kids will be welcomed by their hosts with a small surprise and receive their personalized copy of their program for the weekend. For dinner we will prepare a special buffet featuring all Italian things kids usually like to eat – fresh pasta with delicious sauces, lasagne, great salads and a range of tasty deserts. After dinner we will then embark on a small 40min walk with torches trough the dark Transylvanian wilderness before its time for bed…
After a good nights sleep we will be starting the day with a hearty breakfast with many cereals, pancakes and juices before we head to the wood workshop, where under the skilled supervision of our joiners all kids get to make their own toys or baseball bats (depending on age). Whilst some children are busy in the workshop, others are welcome to try a spot of horseback riding in our riding enclosure on one of our horses.
For lunch we pack all things into our horse-drawn carriages and make our way to the back of the valley behind the Valea Verde, where we have set up a shooting range for bows and arrows. Each kid will be instructed on how to use a longbow and get the chance to safely practice shooting a longbow on several targets. When we have lit a fire to barbecue some skewers, we will have a lunch in the beautiful remote countryside and then make our way back to the Valea Verde. There we will have some time to freshen up and share the stories of the day so far, before we start our children´s party celebrating the international kids day in the garden of the Valea Verde. Herefor we traditionally also invite children from Cund for a games contest with several challenges like a sack race, rope pulling, pot hitting, eating an apple in a bowl of water and a small dance lesson before we have a break with some ice cream and cake. Then we have a small kids disco with dancing and, if the weather is warm enough, some swimming in our outdoor pool.
In the evening we will have a large BBQ for children and parents alike featuring burgers, grilled chicken, steaks and roasts as well as many salads – and also some of our infamous tripple fried french fries… Then we will light a large bonfire and at the end of the day each participant will launch a sky lantern into the star lit Transylvanian sky.
On Sunday morning we will be starting of with a treasure hunt through the whole village before it is time to gather at the Valea Verde for a shooting competition with bow and arrow at our shooting range. At lunchtime it is time to say goodbye – but not before we present each kid with a small gift to take home to remind him or her of some hopefully special experiences made….This offer is available from May 31st 3013 to June 2nd 2013 as well as upon special request.
