Primary mission of New Horizons Foundation (NHF) is the development of social capital – the moral competencies that build trust and make sustainable development possible. Through two proven experiential education strategies - adventure education (VIATA camp) and service learning (youth initiative clubs IMPACT) - we are facilitating a shift in perception away from a win-lose way of thinking, towards a win-win cooperative ethic, and the long-term benefits (not least economic) that result. NHF has 11 years of experience organizing outdoor and experiential educational summer camp for children that take place every year 9 weeks during month of July and August.
