Fun & Action Camp in the Swiss Alps

Organization Sponsor: Active People International


Program Description

This year's FUN & ACTION CAMP organized by Active People Switzerland was a roaring success again.
40 Kids and 5 coaches were training and playing together for a week. In different workshops they could improve their skills at Astrojax, Kiwido, Juggling or Diabolo and work on choreography for the big show on Friday night.
Astrojax was clearly the toy of choice this year. All wanted to win the Trick Check Ball and the Pin Popper (every Jaxer's tool) was in constant use until everyone had his own personalized Astrojax.
Time flies when you're having fun and the week was over way too soon. The show on Friday night will be remembered for a long time though. For many it was the first time on stage. With great enthusiasm they delivered amazing performances and were rewarded with much applause from the audience.
Watch out for the next generation of Astrojax players! >>>

Key Elements Towards Success: 

A small Swiss company started to bring action back into play. But it is motion, skill and creativity that come first when creating and developing the toys.None of the products includes an instruction manual. Instead, the player is asked to develop himself and the game while playing, to get his own ideas and create his individual way of playing.

Challenges To Meet Them: 

Beginners are supposed to have fun and be successful right from the start, but there also have to be new challenges and variations for advanced players.“
