Camp Djurs 2008

Tema: Environment and Nature.

It is a great pleasure for us to invite 20 young Europeans - age from 18 to 22, boys and girls - to visit Denmark and join the "Camp Djurs 2005" during the summer in the period:

2 to 16 August 2008.

The five inviting Danish Rotary neighbouring Clubs: Ebeltoft, Grenaa, Grenaa Djurs, Rosenholm and Rønde, all in Rotary District 1440, are situated in a particularly beautiful nature of Jutland east of Aarhus, “The world’s smallest big city”.

Most days will incorporate home stays at local Rotary homes giving an insight to the standard of living in Denmark.

For five nights you will need your sleeping bag, sleeping mat and towels etc.

The last two nights will be at the Fuglsøcentret in Mols.

All the camp members are asked to take part in cooking, cleaning etc.

Hosts at the camp will include Danish Youth Leaders (English speaking boys or girls) at the participants’ age.

The purposes of the Camp are as follows:

  • to bring together young people from various countries and cultures,

  • to help young people to understand each other ‑ and different cultures ‑ better,

  • to create lasting friendships across geographical and cultural borders,

  • to help develop a better international understanding, tolerance and a wish for peaceful
       co‑existence for the young generation,

  • to create a general understanding of the theme of the camp: “Environment and Nature”,

  • to give the young people knowledge about Danish culture and way of life.

In both weeks there will be excursions to places of interest for example zoological park, sightseeing / shopping in Aarhus and stay the night in the longest wooden ship in the world, but also more fun like canoe tour and amusement park will be included.

When returning home the young guests should have obtained a good deal of knowledge about Denmark and what has been done to protect the environment in this country.

The clubs and the camp-hosts are looking forward to meeting all of you young people. We are sure to offer you two exciting weeks and a pleasant stay!

                                         Sending our best regards
