Voga Camp is a holiday experience thought of for youngsters from junior school age to middle and senior school. Here, in the magical setting of the Venetian lagoon and its islands, Voga Camp has the aim of uniting sport and being outdoors with full immersion in the local traditions, people, artisans, sports celebrities, festivities and food, while rowing along and seeing these places and people first hand. The ancient traditions of these islands are explained and seen and appreciated so, that, they in turn will respect and help promote these values to future generations. Voga Camp offers holidays of one/two/three weeks depending on your choice in this unique environment while enjoying the fresh air and making new friends. The importance of a team is seen through collaboration in sport and group activities under the expert guidance of tutors, each specialised in a particular field. Voga Camp promises to be a wonderful adventure, visiting islands almost forgotten about to the world and learning the history and culture through the five senses, which all culminate in creating an unforgettable experience which all participants will cherish forever.
All activities are performed under the capable supervision of professional instructors and exceptional guides, such as some leading athletes from the Venetian rowing world, great champions of the past and experts in sport and lagoon
Voga Camp exists thanks to the passion the founders have for their city : Venice, its territory, its inhabitants and their lives and crafts, some of them extraordinary and unique people in their special way and above all, driven by great enthusiasm and love for what they do. Venice, seen from the water and visiting its important islands is like living inside a dream and is the most magical experience ever!
The love for Nature is a strong focus point. Understanding Biodiversity and the Environment of the lagoon, an eco-friendly tourism with great respect for all surroundings with music from birdsong and the waves - which are a whirlwind of intense sensations to be treasured.
Voga Camp is, above all, an adventure of fun through rowing while learning about Venice and its secrets and forming bonds and sharing experiences which will be beneficial to everyone participating. Lots of laughter and games to consolidate everlasting friendships while learning to be autonomous and feel confident and secure.
Through sport, the participants learn values and respect for people and nature in a serene and healthy setting and where they learn about collaboration, tolerance, respect and form enduring relationships.
Learning through fun, adapted for the different levels depending on age groups in sport, games, activities, English, Venetian words and phrases, local dishes with their history, famous Venetians in the world, culture and tradition intertwined and a valuable experience.
During the boat excursions, we use as a logistic base and support structure, the network of "rowers", which are numerous in every island of the lagoon. Here we have the opportunity to meet the great "ancients" of the oar, that is, the rowing champions of the past who still help teach at the rowing clubs to pass on to the younger generations the secrets of their art, learned throughout a lifetime spent rowing.

Gloria Rogliani, as sports director and head of "peer education" at the Marinelli Fonte Institute in Venice, has included in the study curriculum the experience of "peer education" to accompany students in the "alternation between school and work” by acquiring well-defined skills in line with what will be their professional career. Alternance between school and work is an innovative way of teaching which, through practical experience, helps students to consolidate the knowledge acquired during their schooling and to learn how to behave in their future professional environment. The program also aims to test " hands on" students' aptitudes, enriching their training and guiding their path towards their future workplace. The characteristic of the program, set up by Gloria Rogliani for the Marinelli Fonte Institute, is founded on an educational offer based on the general philosophy of "learn by doing", aimed at involving students, right from the first year, on a specific path, called "peer education", that will accompany them progressively from their entry in the course of studies up to the specific activity characterised by the curriculum of the school. That is why accompanying students in "peer education" to a dedicated project of experiential tourism, means leading them to develop a sensitivity towards the territory, bringing them, at the same time, to a concreteness in eco-related matters, sustainability, integration and solidarity. The spirit that animates the initiative is: "learn by doing" for the new Venetian citizens !!! The Marinelli Fonte Institute, partner of ASD Gloria Rogliani project, will accompany students towards work awareness by activating all the soft skills required in the world of work, training them in "critical thinking" while, at the same time providing them with a range of practical knowledge with which they will have the opportunity to take part in the development of the programme.
