The camp was based on a prophylactic scheme which aimed at:
§ supporting the physical and psychological development of students,
§ improving knowledge of harmfulness of narcotics and alcohol and at raising the young people's sense of responsibility for their health,
§ acquiring information and skills concerning safe behaviour and cooperation in a group,
§ teaching skiing.
During the camp, students took part in theme workshops, theoretic classes with films and presentations on addictions and healthy lifestyle as well as in sports and rehabilitation classes.
ORLEN Laboratorium was one of the sponsors of the camp - gave company rucksacks and sweet presents to its participants.
On 25 January the President of the "Helping Hand" Association expressed thanks to President of the Management Board, Józef Więckowski, for assistance in organisation of the camp.
