"CREATIVITY IS A COMBINATION OF DISCIPLINE AND A CHILD LIKE SPIRIT."

Who We Are

An experiential education organization focused on outdoors and development within a group context. We want to drive social progress in the world through new and innovative projects, thus empowering youth adaptability to the ever changing circumstances.

TreeHouse is a result of cooperation among Danish, Czech, Romanian, Bulgarian and Latvian organizations meaning that it is only for the citizens of those countries.

What is This

A youth exchange in a nowhere in Latvia. A safe space for endless creation. A week of continuous development. A project where outdoors and media come together. Creativity is a habit, and the best creativity is the result of good work habits. Be prepared that it will be very intense.

The Building

The building of the TreeHouse is used as a learning method within a group context. Half of the day we will be spending 10 metres above the ground working on the TreeHouse platform.

The Film

The group takes initiative to create a film about the project they have created to serve as a reminder of their growth. The other half-day will be spent documenting the building process and the emotions.

The Festival

We celebrate our success through a public TreeHouse festival up in the trees. Music, dancing, performances and workshops - all of your creativity is welcome!

It is for you
