District Council have now given approval to promoting a Summer Camp in July 2018 and arrangements are underway to ensure a successful event. Details below including an important request for Rotarian families to volunteer as home hosts. Can you please help

Rotary International 

District 1285  Summer Camp 2018

Saturday 14th  July – Saturday 28th July

Summer Camp 2018

At their last meeting District Council gave their formal approval to promoting another Summer Camp in 2018. The dates are given above and arrangements are now well underway with the organising of this important event.
Invitations have been issued to the follwing countries to each send two students to the 2018 Summer Camp
  • Portugal
  • Romania
  • Poland
  • Macau
  • Germany
  • Italy
  • Scandanavia (country yet to be determined)

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

In order to ensure a successful  camp we need to find seven 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 this  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.
