The theme of Game On Summer Camp Moldova 2019 is:
"Break" the system, break free!

As in 2018 the campers managed to understand themselves and learn to be their own heroes by improving themselves and developing hero-like qualities, this year, we plan to work with them on building the understanding of the society around them and their role in it. Each day we face 'the system', hearing what is right and what is wrong along with being implied rules to follow without explanations. As our campers reached the age of starting differentiating right and wrong, trying to figure out what is good and bad, we support the development of their ability to make a change. Therefore, the theme of 2019 is: 
"Break" the system, break free!
