Hi, we are an organisation trying to build a camp for children to get back in touch with nature, experience adventures and just have a great time outside.

For that reason we aquired our 'Adventure-Hill', a wonderful place on sunny sicily, and are currently setting up basic facilities, such as solar showers (we already have some, but not enough), a workshop, sleeping huts and rebuilding the hundred years old farm, always trying to be as simplistic and close to nature as possible (no electricity!).

As we have a lot of building material from some sponsors, Chris could really need a hand putting those to good use ;-)

We produce our own olive oil (real virgin - from handpicked fruits), wine (own foot production :-) fresh tomato sauce (one of the world's best thanks to Sicilian sun and the Aetna) and much more with ecologically valuable products from our land & garden.

Life here is very simple, just like Robinson Crusoe, when he was stranded on a lonely island. The difference: On our sunny island we are never alone, thanks to the very hospitable Sicilians and a bunch of couchsurfers and other volunteers.
