June 1 is one of the happiest days for kids. On the one hand, this is their special day, in which we celebrate the children's day, and on the other - for students up to 4th grade, it is the end of the school year. No homework, no getting up early - just sleeping late and playing. And while for them this is a true paradise, we know that it is a challenge for their parents to coordinate vacations and weekends between all available relatives, so as not to leave the child alone at home and think of different activities.
That's why the team of the only digital guide under the hills - Lost in Plovdiv, has selected several alternatives with good reviews, in which you can leave preschoolers and children up to 12 years old and rest assured that they will be cared for and even learn something new.
The entertainment halls at the Plovdiv Rowing Base
In the area around the Youth Center you have a choice between several different projects, all of which are related to outdoor sports during the cooler part of the day. Tennis court, football, dancing, gymnastics, volleyball, English, art are just a few of the activities you can expect in them. In the hot hours, the emphasis is on an hour or two of preparation for school or quiet entertainment. Trips outside the city or visits to cinema screenings are sometimes organized. In most cases, children can be enrolled for a month or two, or for a week, if there are vacancies in the groups.
Sports hall in the Sila complex
It is held in June and July, and children can be enrolled for a week, two or a month. It usually starts in the morning with walks to the Youth Hill or Bunardzhika and then continues with a variety of sports such as swimming, yoga, break dance, adrenaline games, self-defense and all kinds of other entertainment. There is also the possibility of a warm and varied lunch.
MasterKids is a space for learning and games, entirely dedicated to children. The children's study hall has adjoining green areas as part of the complex, where kids can relax between classes or spend time with friends outside under the supervision of teachers. With them you can get additional foreign language courses, as well as countless fun activities tailored to interests such as board games, developing the mind, workshops, skills development, educational screenings, opening questions for discussion, games and sports outside.
