Summer Camp 2017

Our District Summer Camp 2017 is now underway and 14 young students from across Europe and beyond have just spent the first four days with their home host families.A very big thanks to all the home hosts who volunteered their services this year. As ever we are grateful for this involvemnt, indeed without the home hosts the Camp could not take place.
The students have now sailed over to the Isle Man for the middle weekend of the Camp where they will be hosted by the various Rotary Clubs on the Island. The visit to the Isle of Man is always a highlight for the students and thanks to all the Rotarians for their continued support.

During the last week of the Camp the students will  enjoy  a wide range of activities provided by various Rotary Clubs from across our District. You can read more detail about the Summer Camp programme from the documents posted below.

As always Petty Pool has provided an ideal base for all the Camp activities and our relationship with Petty Pool and the staff continues to go from strength to strength.So thank you to Petty Pool.

Finally just a reminder that we have a  Rotary 1285 Summer Camp page on Facebook where you can see all the latest action from the Summer Camp. Have a look and see what is happening.

We now have the agreement to go ahead with a Summer Camp for 2017.  The dates are 15th July  -  29th July.  We will be inviting 14 students from across both Europe and beyond to take part and are certain it will be an exciting and successful event.

However as always the success depends upon the commitment from individual Rotarians and their Clubs to help make it happen.  We need your help and support so do please find ways you can help with the programme.

Home hosting is a particular opportunity where individual Rotarians and their families can open their doors for the first four days of the Camp and host one or two students. You will find this both an enjoyable and fulfilling experience. We are happy to meet you and talk you through what is involved but be assured you will enjoy yourself. Just try it !!!!  

During the last week of the Camp we are looking for Rotary Clubs to volunteer a day or half day activity for the students. Can your Club support the Camp by providing a day or half day of activities for 14 young students??  

Please try and help because with out your support we could not continue with this exciting event.
