In order to offer as many sports as possible,we work in multiple locations the island of Lesvos.

The Gym, Lesvos

Most of our activities are offered in our Gyms. On Lesvos we have a gym where we welcome more than 400 people every day. We offer many activities and have a full program every day! Activities range from bodybuilding, Muay Thai and Kung Fu to dancing, Parkour, fitness and exclusive women classes. Our Gym is a safe space where everyone can come to exercise: refugees, locals, volunteers. Everyone is welcome to do the sport they like or want to discover.


The mountains in Lesvos are beautiful! There are many dirt roads on the island that are amazing for trail runs. As we often run in the mountains near the camp, this training is one of the most accessible for our students. The popularity of the running is reflected by the high number of students joining, and by the unity across the team. On top of the training, our running team joins competitions, where we always meet great success, and share our energy with local Greek runners. The amazing atmosphere and sense of unity exemplifies that we are stronger together!

Yoga Tent

Our Yoga tent at One Happy Family is a perfect space to create a cozy and familiar atmosphere. It is where we carry out the vast majority of yoga classes, at the same time it is a space where we host activities that require a more confidential environment such as women zumba class for example. It is also a perfect space to promote cooperation between the different organizations that work at OHF.


Team sports are popular everywhere around the world. They are a perfect tool to create community and friendship and to just have fun! Spanos is a mini football club where all kinds of team sports are offered. We practice soccer, volleyball and basketball, always with a coach fron the community.


The stadium is one of the most exciting running places to train at, both for our new and more experienced runners. Not only is it optimal for training, but it also inspires our students to greater dreams of competition. In the stadium we hold running practices of two hours, focused on speed, explosivity, technique and pacing. Our objective is to improve our runners capabilities and general health, but also to prepare them for upcoming competitions. In the stadium we can adapt the training to everyone’s capabilities, and strive to unleash everyone’s full potential.


Our project started with the swimming classes every summer. We organise classes everyday from May until October (as long as the weather allows!). We open the classes to men and women, with offering specific classes for women. Seeing someone relaxing in the water during his first class is the best!
