Top 5 sports in EduCamps less practiced in Romania

In a friendly environment, such as an EduCamp, study of a foreign language is no longer perceived as a torturing or boring learning process, especially when things happen in a cloud of serotonin, adrenaline and good physical tone. Yes, because sport is an indispensable part of recreational, mixed, thematic / vocational EduCamps, but also in many academic disciplines.

Whether you are mad about sports or not, why not try a more special sport (less common in Romania), during an EduCamp abroad? You may find that you have some unpredictable skills and can add a new passion to your personal list. We made a short selection of such sports.

 

1. Water sports and sailing

As we humans are mostly made of water, we are easily attracted by it, especially when it unfolds more than we can capture with our own eyes. Or more. And because water is generous, and people are creative, they have invented many sports that involve it. No matter if they are practiced out on water, in water or under water. And, although there are sports that can be practiced by those who do not know how to swim, it's still more secure to have that skill before you may enjoy them.

 

The water sports that can be practiced in the EduCamps abroad are: yachting, windsurfing, rafting, kayaking, kitesurfing, canoeing, paddleboat, stand-up paddling, water skiing, diving, catamaran, swimming, sailing. Or you can learn how to build a raft.

2. Horse Riding

Besides developing muscles and the body in a harmonious way, horse riding is not just a sport. The special relationship that is created between a man and his horse, the posture, the equipment used, the freedom of movement, all this is strongly imprinted in the life of the practitioner, becoming, without exaggerating, a lifestyle. If we say riding is a type of sport, it is certainly the most noble of them.

British pores emanate horse riding. Great Britain has a long tradition of horse riding, here there are boarding schools that have stables and have horse riding clubs, in the true sense of the word. But that does not mean that this is the only destination for those who want horse riding in their timetable during EduCamps.

3. Flying

Surely you will feel a sense of wonder at the idea that you will be able to take flying classes during an EduCamp. Yes, it is quite possible, especially if your age is between 8 and 18 years old and if you sang "Airplane, take me on your flight [...]" when you were small.

Flying goes well beyond the idea of ​​sports, and such an experience during EduCamps can lead to a future profession, but first to a passion.

5. Cricket

Here's a team sport in its great sense. The cricket is similar to North American baseball and has very faraway origins. It is not known exactly the moment of its creation, but we know that it is a very British sport. There are mentions of cricket matches dating back to the 18th century, between Kent and London (1719) and between Kent and Sussex (1728). The sport evolved during that period mainly through matches between landowners and local communities. Since the nineteenth century, cricket teams from England have had matches with teams from Canada, the United States and Australia. 1 Endurance, strategy, team spirit - these are the keywords that accompany this sport.
