Invitations were sent to the following countries to each send two students to the 2018 Summer Camp
  • Portugal
  • Romania
  • Poland

  • Italy
  • Scandinavia

For the first four days of the Camp (Sat. 14th July  -  Wed. 18th July) students stayed with Rotarian families from across the District. For the remainder of the Camp students stayed at both Petty Pool and during the mid weekend they visited Rotary Clubs on the Isle of Man.

In order to ensure successful  camps we need to find Rotarian families willing to host two students each at the beginning of the Camp. Are you able to help ??

All the students are under the age of 18 during their time at the Summer Camp so all host families will need to secure the necessary DBS clearance. (previously known as CRB)  However this is no problem as we will ensure all the paperwork is completed and there is no cost at all to the host family. It is a simple and straightforward process.

Can you please consider helping with  future hosting. I know from many years of personal experience you will thoroughly enjoy the opportunity. I will happily come and speak to any interested Rotarians and answer any questions etc.
