Day 3. Today we’ve visited a cultural center for foreigners, where they can attend Danish classes, workshops, or just gather together. This place is full of refugees from Syria, Somalia, Afganistán and some other places. We’ve been able to listen to some music, eat some treads or wear their typical clothes. In the afternoon, we’ve visited the Odín theatre, a cozy place full of culture. We’ve made a performance workshops and we’ve sung some lullabies from our countries. Special day…

Day 3 After playing to the work group games, the Oivanki camp staff prepared an enjoying activity: print our personalized T-shirts. They teached to students and teachers the way a t-shirt is manually printed so that each of them could make a personalized one.

Once the students painted the t-shirts it was time to dry them with a hairdryer and iron them about 2-3 minutes. The result was amazing. You can see them in the Instagram profile @oivankikuusamo
Day 3 Funny day! The third day has been a chance to learn at the time that the students play. The Integrapp+ group have traveled to Oivanki, a camp in Kuusamo, Lapland, close to the border of Russia. It has been another great activity of this journey. Firstly, the staff of the Oivanki camp told to the students about the characteristics of a good group. At this time, the students didn’t understand anything about it. They wanted to play, they wanted to run… after grouping the students and explaining to the teachers the dynamics of the games, each group started in one work group game.
