Annually our campers create more than 40 projects, aimed at solving actual problems and with benefit for themselves, country or even the entire world. Children develop the concept on their own and implement the project almost without the help of adults.

not only work on the projects, but also gain important vital skills. We asked campers about the changes in their lives after the Big Fish Academy:
noted a significant increase in independence
began appreciate their relatives more and cooperate better as a team
said that their self-esteem increased

Children created a business idea for the residents of the Myhove resort
Prykarpattia is a region rich in natural resources, but the majority of residents survive here only at the expense of the winter months, when Myhove turns into a ski resort.
The children created a business idea for local residents that could help them make money all year long - Clap-Snap branded soap. For this, the campers used a soap base, aroma oils and herbs, which they collected and dried with their own hands.
- Created packing and advertisement,
- held a presentation of the finished product to the village administration led by the mayor. After that, all the lots of goods were sold out for "decs" (camp currency) like hotcakes.
