Camp Djurs 2011: Exploring Denmark

Theme: Culture, sea, sun and friends

It is a great pleasure for us to invite 25 young Europeans - age from 18 to 22, boys and girls - to visit Denmark and join the "Camp Djurs 2011" during the summer in the period:

13 to 27 August 2011.

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.

The second week will include a two night’s “survival tour” with tents to a small island “Anholt”, between Denmark and Sweden.

The last two nights will be at a Youth Hostel.

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: “Culture, sea, sun and friends”,

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

The main goals of the camp:

To see the life on Djursland, the ancient culture in the region, the possibilities of tourism and making new friends.

In both weeks there will be excursions to places of interest.

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

Bo Rasmussen

Chairman of the Camp Djurs Committee
