Experimental outdoor life, nature and biodiversity
In this subject we use the facilities around the school and in the area to explore nature's life and the biodiversity, we make it easier for different species to find living places in the area at Jaruplund. We make food over a bonfire and invite the rest of the school for dinner, we learn how to find our way without a GPS but with a map and compass, and we learn not only to survive sleeping outside, but to have a nice time while we are in nature.

The Board Game Factory
Unleash your inner geek and join us when we pull out our cardboards. Whether you want to try out new board games, create your own, paint miniatures, design the coolest Dungeons and Dragons campaign or simply want to be better at chess, you’ve come to the right place!
When you create your own board game, you have to consider things like theme, number of players, whether the game is meant to be played casually or competitive, mechanics, etc. In the board game factory we will be playing a series of different games together and explore what makes a board game a fun experience.
Once we have gotten over these basics together, the board game factory turns into a creative workshop where you can work on the projects you find most interesting. You will receive the feedback you need, whether you need help on designing your board, how to publish your game, how to make your pen & paper campaigns more interesting, or how you make the correct opening moves in competitive games.
