A Fun Filled Family Holiday for Single and Couple Parents with Kids, 1 – 8 August
Doroty Rosser €400, (Children age 8 – 12, €200, age 4 – 7, €100) (Kissos Campus)
Come and Enjoy Creating Authentic Holistic Community Near the Cozy Kissos Village!
Join us at the Kalikalos Kissos Campus in the lush nature of Pelion mountain, overlooking the amazing blue Greek sea. You will have time for sun and sea, walking and relaxing. During our family holiday there will be time for sharing conversations, listening to music or simply enjoying the natural silence.
What will we do?
Each group is different and the activities can change depending on the ages of the children and the different needs of the parents and children, therefore affording us a flexible programme. Our community rhythm helps everyone to feel relaxed.
There are the times for community clean-up, cooking and gardening together. There are times at the beach and there is time to simply be.
It is our intention to design the activities of the week with your input so we can be flexible and responsive to the needs of the group. So although there is some structure and routine, there is also lots of room to create the kind of holiday that you want and need for you and your family!
Come for a creative, nourishing, inspiring and fun family holiday!
In the mornings after a buffet breakfast we begin our day gathered together in a circle where we may start with a song, some stretching movements and a game. We will discuss the outline for the day ahead. During the course of the week activities may include storytelling, puppet making, lantern making, family yoga and dancing, exploratory walks to the nearby water falls. We can enjoy singing and theatre games.
At 1:30 we have a buffet lunch together, after which the Centre provides us with transport to the beach. On some days we may take our lunch in picnic boxes and go earlier to the beach.
Afternoons at the Beach
Here there is natural shade for the younger children and those of us who don’t need any more wrinkles. The sea is warm and clear and perfect for paddling, swimming and snorkelling. Time to rest, bathe, relax or play.
After a vegetarian dinner and the clean-up “party”, in which everyone helps out according to a rota, the late evenings are quiet times. You may sit around the table and chat to your new friends, go on moonlight walks through the forest or simply hang out in the village cafes.
On Tuesdays we all go out for a taverna meal together (€14 price not included) to taste typical Greek food and where we may meet guests and participants from one of the other two Kalikalos campuses.
The last Thursday before departing we organise a cabaret with amusing children skits, songs, improvisation and dance. You can participate as much or as little as you like in the celebration. If you wish to bring musical instruments or other props for your sharing that would be great!
The community of Kalikalos is very special in that you as participants, help to make it.
There is a strong connection between the Findhorn Foundation in Scotland and Kalikalos Centres in Greece. A main intention is to put love into action, to connect with nature and to create community through work and play together, adults and children.
It is most importantly the people who make Kalikalos the experience that it is, and we can’t wait for you to join us and to share in the discovery of the magic of this place.
Note that there is a 10% discount for booking both Family weeks at Kissos campus.
