I have utilised seppo in our club leader training, confirmation camp programmes and fifth grade 24-hour camp schools.

The kids themselves took part in creating the camp school's adventure. First they drew a map of the area on seppo, then in pairs they came up with fun tasks for the different activity areas. They were very excited about being able to influence the content of the tasks themselves. I learnt a lot from the kids' ideas myself – I may not have been able to come up with anything that open-minded myself.

I see a lot of potential in seppo. The tool interests people of all ages and can also be used in family work. Sometimes the parents are clumsier with technology than the children, so the children can advise them with the devices and feel good about their skills.
