WHAT PEOPLE SAY
"With experience of more then 25 years of Ski-Ten summers ( that is when I cumulate the number of years my 3 kids went there), I can confirm that for all of them, these holidays have been memorable! From the first encounters, shy ones, when they were 6 years old, to growing and aspiring to become an aid-mono, being one of them, and eventually, when 18-19years old becoming Monitor - all experiences have shaped my kids in many areas: being part of a team, learning to follow and organise daily routines and activities, respect for rules, for differences and diversity, coaching other, being coached….and i can continue the list with many others- but recommend that you and your child discover this yourself!"
