At first place, “Outdoor Fun” project aims at bringing together young people from different cultures, with different background, social status, experience and viewpoints through the power of art, which is a universal means of communication.
We would like to show local community and all young people that there are no boundaries in communication and friendship unless we set such.
No matter the color of our skin, our sexual orientation, financial status, we all strive for one – to be happy.

We recommend travelling to Sofia airport, because this is the easiest way to reach us.
Once a volunteer is selected, they should buy a return ticket.
If you face some financial difficulties and you cannot afford buying your ticket, please, contact us. There is nothing to worry about!
To make it easier for you, we have gathered here the different direct travel options. Only from Latvia there are no direct flights to Sofia. There are some to Varna. You could check Skyscanner to find a good offer. We will discuss it further. Any volunteer selected should discuss the travel option they have selected with the receiving organization before buying the ticket.
