Have you ever been to summer camp? Did you enjoy it? Did you play lots of games, perhaps volleyball and football? Did you take part in camp competitions with nightly contests and sing around a campfire? Or were you just bored? Well, this is your big chance to come and have a wonderful time with us at our camp! Why don’t you give it a try?
Our camp is greatDuring the morning we spend lots of time either on the sports fields, near the water or in the forest. Some people might prefer swimmingwhile others prefer playing football. Have you ever played petanque or cricket? Be sure that during all these activities only spoken English is used! After lunch there is a rest period and after that is the main focus of the whole day – the summer camp game! Every day one part of the game is completed through games, competitions and teamwork. It is very exciting – one day you will be fighting against each other, the next day searching for stuff in the forest and another day you will be the main character in a theatrical play. We are always in one of the English speaking countries. After having visited England, Australia, Hollywood, Scotland, New York, the British Asian Empire and London. We have dreamt the American Dream, visited the Tasmanian Devil down under and searched for treasure at the end of the rainbow in Ireland. We went to Texas and lived among the cowboys and the kings of the oil and last year we joyfully yelled "Aloha!" in Hawaii. But this year, “The Mother Way” is waiting for us. Nearly 4,000 kilometers, dozens of milestones, endless stories, and many adventures. The most famous road in the world, the classic, all-American Route 66, which journeys over the Mississippi, through Colorado Falls, across the Moab Desert, and through the endless cornfields of the Midwest. Occasionally some attentive travellers might spot a UFO and tell tales of their existence to friends, or travel to the Indian Reserves and the bustling metropolis of Los Angeles to experience unexpectedly different views of American life. Perhaps it is because the famous highway had is glory days long ago or perhaps it is more than just a technical monument. It could be a memory of recent times, or a living mirror of the turbulent present, its counterpart, full of strange personalities; it’s the American dream stopped in time. Nostalgia touches us from the slopes of the Arizonian rocks, raises the testimony of the Tear Trail passed by the Cherokee Indians on their last expedition, or the paradoxical fact that the legendary road was the only one disconnected from the American motorway network. Still, it’s memories live on, and perhaps more than anywhere else! There are plenty of reasons why we have to spend the delightful TEN DAYS ON ROUTE 66 together.
EUROCAMP is spectacular! If you still don’t believe it, come and see it with your own eyes. And the nightly contest – you shouldn’t miss it! But don´t worry – if you are really scared, we don't force anyone to attend. Experienced travellers recommend two or three weeks for a classic ride down sixty-six. You will be living TEN DAYS with us, but it will be quite the experience. So get your engines ready, leave your worries at home, and Get Your Kicks on Route 66! We look forward to meeting new friends and seeing old ones as well.
If you expect groups of people sleeping in tents and washing in the river, forget it! We’ve got a beautiful place between the river and the forest. We stay in wooden cottages and there is hot water running in the showers. Better yet, you’ll be with really cool people!
Don’t think we’re just any old camp, because we are special and different, if that’s what you’re looking for. There are two leaders for each team – one is Czech and the other is American, English, Canadian, Irish, or Australian. Really! It’s not unusual that you will be on a team with a girl or boy from America or Austria, but don’t worry. You’ll be able to make friends, because you will be using English. If you don’t understand, there will always be someone to help you translate, either your new Czech friend or one of the leaders. We all help each other.
