I`m not different here

To feel that you are part of the herd, to meet like-minded people, to feel the sense of mastery when trying something new – this is important for all of us, but most importantly for our children. Positive experiences early in life leave good traces for the rest of your life. That’s why we’re committed to creating memorable experiences for kids. For almost 40 years we have been arranging winter sports week for children and this experience we use to fill a week of mastery, joy, new friends and experiences your child will remember with pleasure.

Children’s Ridderweek is conducted as a camp week for children with disabilities from 10 to 16 years. They live here alone without guardians, but in safe conditions together with skilled instructors and with good follow-up throughout the week. We work closely with educational institutions in sports, physical activity and health. The students assist the children around the clock with outdoor activities during the day and socializing in the evening. All under expert guidance from the school and the staff from the association Ridderrennet where everyone has a background in pedagogy and health.

«Torbjørn enjoys himself there every year with the students who do a great job.»

The children taking part have different forms of disability. They get to try their best at skiing and cross-country skiing in a fantastic winter landscape. They experience a slightly different everyday life than the usual one, with a positive focus on managing their own lives and building relationships with new people. Change rejoices, we have experienced. We also put the Children’s Knight’s Week so early in winter that participants can enjoy their newly acquired skiing skills for the rest of the winter when they return home.

Children’s Ridderweek is an unforgettable week – for the children, students, supervisors and everyone who contributes. Welcome, we can’t wait to meet you!
