The program was addressed to children from the Cluj community aged between 8-14 years.
The camp gave the children the opportunity to participate in a wide range of activities in the field of art and crafts, creative writing, audio and video production, dance and music, as well as the concept of mindfulness. During the ICC@TC the children practiced their passions and experienced new challenges without having strict barriers created by a particular curriculum.
