Belgium Summer Camp Vol.5 26-30 Aug 2015
Belgium Summer Camp happens every year in the Ardennes in southern Belgium. The region is regarded as the wildest area with plenty of extensive forests and rolling hills. This year (2014), the camp will happen for the 4th time in a row between August 26th - September 1st. Book your flight tickets, start searching your road mates, it gonna be a blast!
If you wanna come by train, the campsite is 10 km further from the train station "Melreux-Hotton". A bus drops you not far from the camp. We have also planned pickups from the train station to the campsite for the late comers .
Please note that the camp is in wild style. Therefore, we do not provide any basic facilities such as running water, shower, electricity, however we have planned to set up a composting toilet or a latrine and conventional toilet. A river is crossing the camp, so just jump on for shower but be aware, only organic soap is allowed.
