Summer at "Hellenic Cosmos" 2024

The Gods of Olympus Organize Their Own "Olympiad" 

The famous Twelve Gods strike again and take action! No more storms and conspiracies, quarrels, and disagreements among them. The Gods of Olympus join forces and decide to organize their own "Olympiad" full of contests of knowledge, taste, art, music, and sports. Where else? Of course, at the "Hellenic Cosmos"! They invite and challenge us to take part in this "Divine" event, which will happen for the first time in world history. Let no one miss it!

Theater Workshop:

A program specially designed for our little friends. Get ready for theater games! Here, we will have holidays and dives into the big pool of imagination! Together, we will have fun, play, and come into contact with the magical world of theater! Through a series of games, we will strengthen skills such as teamwork and trust, and we will learn about improvisation and storytelling! We will create characters, get to know our bodies, our voices, and enhance our imagination!


The theater game helps the child:

  • improve their communication with friends, family, etc.
  • learn how to coexist and be a member of a group.
  • adapt easily to various social situations.
  • express themselves physically and psychologically.
  • gain new experiences. 
  • be calm and peaceful.
  • share various issues that concern them and cannot express in words.
  • become sensitive to more issues by "entering" different roles.

Konstantinos was born, raised, and studied in Thessaloniki at the Drama School of Vasilis Diamantopoulos. For the past 7 years, he has been performing in theater, in plays such as "Les Misérables" by V. Hugo and "Oliver Twist" by C. Dickens, directed by Konstantina Nikolaidis, and you may have heard his voice in Scooby-Doo, in the role of Shaggy or in other dubbings! At the same time, he teaches theater games and theater education in various creative activity centers and performs with his groups!

Sports Games offer children many benefits and help them:

  • improve their physical condition.
