Invitation to the International Leo Youth Camp 2012

Invitation to the International Leo Youth Camp 2012

For more than 20 years Leo volunteers from Schleswig-Holstein, Northern
Germany, have been organizing the so called „International Leo Youth Camp“, an event which brings people from all over Europe together and has only gotten the best reviews from our participants.
The Leos are the Youth Organization of Lions Club International. With our motto "We serve" we have set our goal to give back something to society by doing voluntary work. Everything from gala events to working in homes for the elderly or orphans is part of the wide range of our „Leo-work“. For further information please visit our web page (www.leo-clubs.de)

What exactly is this „Camp“?

The International Leo Youth Camp already takes place for the 12th time this summer. Blind or partially sighted young adults at the age of 18-25 from all over Europe have the chance to experience a very special two-week holiday in Scharbeutz near the Baltic Sea. The camp offers a place of encounter and helps to improve international understanding. The young adults are provided with the chance to gain new experiences, cross boarders, get to know Northern Germany and its people and find friends from all across Europe. The whole camp is being cared for by Leos of more or less the same age and the camp language is English. The camp is one of a kind, at least in Germany.
During the last years various activities were undertaken: driving in a learner´s car, climbing in a high rope course, visiting museums, parks, zoos, several towns in the vicinity and a mudflat hiking tour. Disco-and movie nights, relaxing at the beach or shopping in Germany´s second biggest city, Hamburg, were all part of the program.
