Cancellation of Summer Camp 2021.

Dear children,
Dear parents,

Although we were looking forward to Summer Camp 2021, and worked hard to organize it, unfortunately we have to cancel it.

We have had to make this difficult decision because there has not yet been an official announcement by the Greek government regarding operation, and the current situation regarding Covid-19 is such that the operation of a safe and fun Summer Camp is not possible at this time.

Thank you for your interest and love for our Summer Camp. We hope to meet again in the summer of 2022 at the Summer Camp we have all missed so much!

Until then, stay safe and well!
